SuperIlu/DOjS: A DOS JavaScript Canvas with sound
DOjS is a JavaScript-able canvas with WAV, MIDI and FM sound support for systems running MS-DOS, FreeDOS or any DOS based Windows (like 95, 98, ME). It was inspired by Processing which is described on Wikipedia as:

Processing is an open-source graphical library and integrated development environment (IDE) / playground built for the electronic arts, new media art, and visual design communities with the purpose of teaching non-programmers the fundamentals of computer programming in a visual context.

It also has a p5js compatibility mode where some of the functions of p5js are available and scripts can have a similar structure to Processing sketches.

The FPGASID Project
The chip MOS6581 also known as the Sound Interface Device (SID) of the Commodore 64 computer is known for it's characteristic sound. Unfortunately, many of these devices produced between 1982 and 1993 reach the end of their life span these days. It is getting harder to get a replacement part. Thus, we need a proper substitute.
And this is what the FPGASID project is all about!
It has been started to overcome with this situation and reaches even higher - it aims for a better SID than any SID has ever been before...
