the 6581 filter strength slider is greyed out, and occasionally "flickers" when hovering near it. i can't adjust a thing :(

Instantly crashes on XP SP3 x86, Athlon 64. Does it not support XP?

Thank you for your efforts so far!! I wanted to report something isn't quite right. I can hearing a rapid "thumping" noise that is not present in either Szczepaniak's or ZXED's plugins. A good example of this is Antti Hannula (Flex)'s "Adriana.sid" from 2014 (Artline). Listen to the opening (00:00-01:06). There are quiet but audible thumps at regular intervals from the backing synth channel (Voice #2). It sounds like a volume change problem, as the voice is simulating an echo effect most of the time

don't show play position + can't seek too.
tnx, back to 37.1.387.

Keltic Danor: Did you remember to enable seeking? :P

8bit digi sample playback seems to be distorted. Some of the extensive SID abusing tracks like Jammer's sound a bit off too. 2xSID tracks don't seem to play at all.

Keltic Danor: Hi v, there is a simpler version of the plugin you can try to see if it is a plugin specific issue or an issue with the libsidplayfp engine, you can download it here: https://github.com/KelticDanor/xmp-SIDex
If you can let us know on the un4seen.com forum that would be great!

It works like a charm.
For Songlength and HSVC database if your folder path is by example like C:\Xmplay\C64Music\DOCUMENTS go to SIDex options and enter: C64Music\DOCUMENTS\ ( DONT FORGET last \ )

Tried to download. Windows Security detected Trojan:Win32/Zpevdo.B in the zip file.

Keltic Danor:
It was UPX packed which occasionally causes false positives, this one has the source code fully available and is compiled by me so can confirm 100% it is safe for use.
