Having seen the newest version of the webSID player by Juergen Wothke now supports multiple SIDs for stereo playback & reverb, I thought it best to make the obligatory CODEF version. 

The latest update to webSID includes stereo features. These features should NOT be activated if you are a purist looking for the original C64/SID chip experience!

The original chip outputs *one* mono-audio-signal into which all the SID's three voices are mixed. The only means by which stereo can be produced with the original hardware is by wiring up some non-standard multi-SID configuration.

Unlike the original hardware, WebSid provides voice level stereo panning: This allows to simulate multi-SID scenarios as well as single SID stereo not supported by the original SID chip.
