I need informations about the YM2151

Post by nineko » Fri Dec 17, 2010 1:38 pm

Do we have any docs about the YM2151?

Let me explain better (without spoiling my project though). I might be working on some program which handles 2151 vgm files, so I need informations about the registers, the instruments, and everything which can be useful.
Basically if I want to write a 2151 vgm file I need to know how to set up an instrument, how to issue a note on, etc.

My project involves the YM2612 too, but I am already covered for that. The docs online are quite complete, and Tiido and Andlabs helped a lot.

So yeah, that. I'd need to raise my knowledge of the 2151 to the same level of my knowledge of the 2612 :P

Also sorry if this isn't the proper forum section, I am not very familiar with this forum, so please move if appropriate.

Very interested

There is YM2151 datasheet with registers map; MAME source code; VOPM sources; some related MSX docs with programming examples - you can easily find everything in Google by requests 'ym2151 datasheet', 'ym2151 docs'.
