Explore the world of mid 80s music synthesis sound chip - Yamaha's YM2413 OPLL (FM synthesis) as used in the MSX-MUSIC standard.
This is a kit based around the YM2413 OPLL (FM synthesis) sound chip, and designed to be compatible with the MSX-MUSIC standard. Add the amazing advanced music generation of Yamaha's OPLL (FM synthesis) YM2413 chip to your RC2014 build, and propel your ears into the new era of 80's sounds.
The YM2413 was especially made for the MSX system. The YM2413 was also used in Sega Mark III and the Japanese Sega Master System, as well as in arcade machines by SNK and Alpha Denshi, and in a range of Yamaha keyboards.
This YM2413 supports one user-defined instrument and fifteen read-only hard-coded instrument profiles (violin, guitar, piano, flute, clarinet, oboe, trumpet, organ, horn, synthesizer, harpsichord, vibraphone, synthesizer bass, acoustic bass and electric guitar). The IC can operate either as nine channels of melodic instruments or six melodic channels and five hard-coded percussion instruments (high hat, top cymbal, and tom tom, snare and bass drums).
Installed into a MSX configured RC2014 build, this kit will give your system the ability to run many MSX music tracker applications or compatible games.
The on-board ROM includes the MSX-MUSIC basic extensions, enabling the ability to write/run basic program thru its implementation of Music Macro Language (requires the MSX-Memory board with MSX-BASIC flashed).
With the ability to re-flash (update) the on-board SST39SF040 ROM -- this module also doubles as a simple SST39SF040 ROM programmer.
These are a series of boards that I am developing to achieve MSX compatibility for RC2014 systems.
The idea is that you can build each board one at a time, test it and then move onto the next one.
The V9958 board was the first in that series.
More details can be found on my hackaday project
The full kits includes everything you need (PCB, capacitors, IC sockets, connectors, and the ICs). The YM2149 are used or old as new stock, tested in circuit by me before shipping.
The SST39SF040 ROM is supplied flashed with MSX-MUSIC extensions for MSX BASIC.
Although it should be possible to operate this module on a stock RC2014 - I am unaware of any software that will drive it, so its recommended you have a fully operational Yellow MSX system on your RC2014 system (memory, video, etc)*
The onboard MSX-MUSIC basic extensions, requires your main Memory board has MSX-BASIC installed. The MSX-MUSIC programming feature can be used to create a new main ROM.
* The onboard ROM can only be accessed when running your RC2014 in full MSX configuration.
Please note that this is a kit, produced by a non-professional (me) for hackers, DIYers' and retro lovers, to tinker with. I will do my best to answer any support questions you may have.
