Well, as you experienced it, the output on MOL & MOR is significantly louder than 2612 so the output impedance should not be the same, however I think that adding pull-down should reduce the volume in this case... Somebody actually kind of piggy backed an YM3438 on top of a YM2612 in a stock Genesis...

Its cool that you point this out, as it reveals that ones might needs or prefers different settings to suit a particular work-flow. The easiest thing to do is a .c file with the MIDI mapping per register. This way anyone will be able to customize the CC list for his personal needs :) and upload the ...

Here on soundcloud this is the actual recording of the Megadrive with the VGMPLAY player...

PM send :) This info might help? http://www.pjrc.com/teensy/benchmark_usb_serial_receive.html On a personal point of view (music creation in mind) I would not really care if I cannot stream PCM samples through the YM2612 DAC. After all it is just a crappy way of playing PCM and you can reproduce the...

Count me In for one! :) I never found the time to make mine because I have a GenMDM unit but the code is closed source so I cannot tweak the hell of it :) I have a lot of fe...
