AVRAY is basically a project for recreating the YM2149 / ay-3-8910 chip on an ATMEGA8 chip.
It is also:
- a arduino player for YM2149 / ay-3-8910
- a windows application for playing YM files (and supports many other related formats)
- the recreation of the AY chip inside an ATMEGA8 chip, which you can use also with an other arduino player. So you can stream YM / AY music from an sd card and make it work from a battery or solar power for example.

I've soldered a board with this emulator last week-end.
I'd like to make a PCB for making more boards like this. In this case, would some of you be interested in it? It's probably possible to turn this into a synth, but I don't think I'll have the knowledge for such a thing.
ATM it's only a sd card reader connected to the arduino which read the data (YM/AY files you can convert to the dedicated format), then pass it to the atmega8 (the sound chip recreating the ym2148)
Here is a new video I made with this board:
and a picture of it:
