If you belong to the "...but I don't like C64 sounds" camp - this is definitely not for you:

Great stuff man, i loved it. What SID settings you recommend for good emulation quality. I found reSID-fp perform better but it hangs up my system.

I have no idea what is the textbook perfect setting but I'd gladly tell you mine. It works everywhere for me, from an old single-core 1.7GHz machine through a laptop to a 6-core studio workhorse. Maybe it helps that all of them have some sort of quick full duplex audio interface, Focusrite the most.

So, my VICE 2,4 settings (3 or above has a reduced sound):

MACHINE:

- C64C PAL

SID SETTINGS:

- sid filters on
- reSID-fp 8580R5 1489 (sounds almost completely identical to my fav real machine, really hard to tell the difference in an A/B test)
- sample method: resampling
- pass band: 90%

SOUND SETTINGS:

- DX driver on
- output mode: mono
- sample rate: 44100 Hz
- buffer size: 350ms (max)
- sound fragment size: large
- synch method: exact

I hope that helps.
