Lol, I discovered this project only 3 hours after the giveaway stream, that's too funny. Are PCB's available for purchase at this time? I'd love some SID magic in my DOS machine, I don't have a C64 anymore and used to only run soundmon really
No, there are no PCBs left. It was only a five-piece run for evaluation purposes. This card had never been built before, so we couldn't know whether it really works.
But as root42 said, you can always download the KiCAD files and order a new batch of boards. If you or anyone else want(s) to do that, feel free to announce it here!
If it doesn't have to be this specific design, you could also ask Fagear for one of his SSI-2001 compatible cards. I don't know whether he still sells them.

Sounds the same as on mine. It's more than just the pitch (which is close enough that I can't hear a difference), it's missing notes, maybe a whole voice, compared to the same thing with the real SID 😮
Hang on, not so sure now. Just listened to a video with 8580 SID and it sounds the same too https://youtu.be/4JdUdZi97S0
Should make two recordings myself, but my 'companion' PC in my retro area is out due to upgrade until I get DDR4 RAM, hopefully Tuesday...
Are you sure that you're not comparing it to the AdLib version?
There are some original Innovation SSI-2001 recordings in one of DBob's posts from 2011.
It's dead links, only, but archive.org still has the files:
