I've spent the past month or so playing Sega Master System and PC games from the Apogee era and have come to the conclusion I fricking love the sound on the Yamaha YM3812! It sounds like my childhood :-)
Has anyone come up with a stand-alone project for the OPL2 that's accessible via external MIDI control? I'd love to do a classic computer build but don't have the space next to my other crap (albeit valuable crap consisting of an E-MU e5000 ultra sampler, Future Retro Revolution synth and a Novation Xio25, hence valuable :-) )
Just looking for options here, my current PC could possibly run some older sound cards, it has 2 PCI slots readily available but no ISA slots and I never bothered to upgrade past XP 32-bit)
I'm no stranger to soldering and wiring but was never too handy with programming micro-controllers beyond the absolute most basic of functions (light goes on, light goes off) so I'd be really keen to find a working DIY project, get the parts and wire it all together!
Many thanks :-)
