there are lots of different sound chips, and I'm even considering getting
a c64 to use it as a sort of assembler csound, if that makes sense.

Have you seen this one: ? The c64 is
not the only older computer with such a chip. But probably the best. I
have one of the general instruments chips here somewhere, but as far as I
know it has no internal filters, though it does have adsr (sort of). Radio
Shack used to sell them... long time ago :) I can see why the SID is so
popular... I will have to see if my brother in law still has any c64
around still.
