There was NOT an "integrated SID chip in the C64G" and it was not a MOS 8500 - what is that anyway? It has the same board as a C64C with the plain MOS 8580 SID-chip. The reason for sampled sound play on very low volume is that this was a bug in the 6581 that was removed in the 8580 - but they found other ways to do it and hardware-wise it could be solved by simply grounding one leg of the 8580 through a resistor.
