    On Sunday I created a chiptune for the PC-8801MkIISR/YM2203. It's a re-arrangement of the windmill song, and takes advantage of a few technical tricks that the YM2203 is capable of. Anyone who knows me, knows that this track will run on PC-88 or PC-98 hardware (this video was made with a render from the original 2kB driver program file that tells the chip what to do—that's right, you can use code to make music!)

    It's one of my favourite songs from one of my favourite games, so there was no way I could just let it pass me up.

    This is the original.

  2. Adding my two cents to the change pile; Parametric EQ 2 is fine; but I do have to recommend Pro-Q or similar if you're looking to use linear phase EQ to prevent transient smearing or phase issues when you notice regular EQ plugs creating that problem. Fruity Convolver has a linear phase EQ built in but it's not real-time adjustable and the interface is poor.

  3. YM2612 VST is a YM2612 emulator if you'd like to do MD/Genesis stuff. You can pair it with the ymVST YM2149 emulator to get a reasonable approximation of MD/Genesis or PC-98 sound, or pair ymVST with 8 channels of VOPM to emulate Sharp X1 FM boards. No soundfonts needed as it's all emulated and generated.

    I am aware that the PSG inside of the MD/Genesis is an SN76489, but the YM2149 is close enough in capability to be versatile in this regard.
