The kind of screenshot I fancy



I rechecked my DMG waveform synthesis yesterday, and made sure I had the range and AC Coupling emulation right according to the lowest 32Hz freq of the DMG Wave Channel.
(i dont have a pro mod DMG, I personnaly like the sound of the phones out of mine)

EDIT: For fairness to the scientific community, here are the actual samples.
1)chipsounds
2)DMG phone out

Slight tonal difference, but as herr_prof mentionned it can sound different from DMG to DMG.

You can save the files and animate them, as you will see the real DMG has some broadband noise at -90db, while chipsounds is pretty flat. Should i add extra noise samples to mix in? I seriously thought about adding them as extras

No fancy research, just preset making

But presets can take a while, there's just so much messing around associated with the task.

This is one of my favorite SID style arps

Testing the Wave Sequencer module

Paul Slocum's amazing ATARI synthcart beats remixed in chipsounds...

(just random pitchbend/mod wheel action on the first loop)

uPD1771C Tester App

Hum and I thought my POKEY sounded abrasive...



Until This

Making this app (in a non-existing assembler) was such a pain, it was better be worth it. This is "one sound". Most definitely some AND/OR'ing of two bit patterns. Research goes on... yummy!
