Can anyone suggest VSTi with output to external dump format (.VGM, .S98 and etc)?
I know about VOPMex, FMDrive, SPSG and C700, but is there anything else? Thanks

All the synths in these line will contain vgm type support for each chip

Unfortunately, PortaFM can only play VGM, not export. =(

As far as I remember, FMDrive does not actually export VGM, it has an external toolset to convert MIDI and patches into VGM, then join it with SPSG output.

My PCSPE plug-in exports PC Speaker music into a dump, but there is no standard like VGM for Speaker music, so it is all custom.

This is something I've been dreaming of. I wish Deflemask, at least, had full-fledged MIDI input (there really just needs to be some kind of Mega Drive MIDI standard) so that one could at least record to the tracker and then export to VGM. A VST would be ideal, though.

I don't know, maybe FMDrive does fit the bill, but I can't seem to get it to work with Bitwig, and the lack of a 64bit version means that I can't use it with VCV Rack. I have been meaning to see if I can get the standalone version working with ORCĪ› via loopMIDI. I had high hopes for the RYM2612 VST with how enamored I've become with RYMCast, but the lack of VGM export/recording is a bit disheartening.

Deflemask on iPad works well with midi keyboard, you just need to plug lighting to usb conversion cable.

Is it more full-featured than Deflemask on desktop? Meaning, is it at all comparable to gen/MDM with its CC and channel assignment? If I recall right, the mobile version does have some novel features when compared to desktop, but I don't believe deeper MIDI input is necessarily one of them.

I use now only Sega Genesis mode, but on iPad is working well, i love it! I spent half hour on pc version and it is same for me

Yeah, but it's just note input for one channel at a time. No MIDI CC, no polyphonic recording, no channel assignments, right? I think that what anyone's after here is the ability to compose (or perform) in a DAW for the Genesis via MIDI commands and have those MIDI commands recorded to VGM without too much fiddling. A tracker like Deflemask would be a decent go-between if it had deeper MIDI mapping.

Why do you want it? I have at home for example top notch Kurzweil Forte workstation and Arturia Matrixbrute analog synth, but i bring to work only iPad and i play or modify anything i want on touch screen quickly, so there no need for external keyboard for me. Along on Deflemask i use also Korg Gadget 2, NanoStudio 2 or FL Studio and during recording you can record any knob movements, but in Deflemask you must seek knob movements during playing and enter commands manually which is not that hard.

I really don't see how that covers anything that I or the OP are looking for. Namely, recording to VGM (i.e., being able to export tracks formatted in .vgm). Why would it matter why someone would ever want to do such a thing? What bearing would your particular process or approach have in regard to the very specific inquiry of this thread?

Yeah, that's why I thought it was relevant to the thread, but this isn't a thread about Deflemask or the music anyone might have produced with it in any regard. Deflemask is incredibly useful for producing VGM but woefully deficient in its MIDI mapping. Deflemask as a VST would imply deeper and more expansive MIDI functionality, but better MIDI in the desktop or mobile version would probably suffice almost as well for bridging the MIDI to VGM barrier.

You can try Genny VSTi, it is really nice, i personally dont use it yet, but i like it a lot, UI is also great.
