Oh yeah, definitely. It has terrible background noise, some of which is
because its envelopes never completely shut off the sound of the synth.
(You can very softly hear the patch its registers are set for even when
a note isn't playing.) There are also other background noises not
related to that which are even louder.

I put a MXR noise gate guitar pedal on the output of my SidStation when
I had one, and it worked really well, at least for creating silence in
between notes. Of course there's no solving the problem during note
sustain. It's just noisy.
