You should read the interview with Jesper Kyd.

Where?
https://www.google.com/search?q=Jesper+ ... +interview
How can I recognize that I read what you meant?

Do you mean that YM2612 sounds bad at all? Or just under GEMS driver?

Few years ago I've read one of interview with Jesper Kyd. He talk about music quality on MD. He told that everyone want digital drums with terrible low quality. And he offered pure synt instruments with "CD quality", which he used in own tunes. Indeed, music from Jesper Kyd on MD are peerless.

Not all, but some music using the GEMS driver sounds bad. There are some exceptions (like Dune 2, Earthworm Jim, Vectorman) but a lot of it sounds rather flat in comparison to other sound drivers.

I think, it is just bad music/composition itself.
