Couple a days ago I bought a Yamaha CX5M II/128, the music computer. It came with SFG-05 FM synth module, like it should.

There is so much info on the net that I don't know what to try next. There is that CALL MUSIC of course. Then I downloaded the YRM-502 FM Voicing Program II (CALL FMV). Works, but are there instructions anywhere? I can change parameters and it changes the sounds, but it's somewhat random without manual...

What other softs are good? There is MidiSlav of course, but I haven't got a disk interface yet. DMS-II should work on this?

Are any of those roms copy-protected?

And, I found this: http://www.cx5m.net/dexed/
Didn't try it yet, though.

I found a lot of programmers info also, but it seems the synth unit cannot be utilised in BASIC? Or C? I can Z80 asm, but it's not very convenient for quick and dirty tests and such.

There are also instructions to convert the machine to MSX2, on the familiar http://msx.hansotten.com but also: http://www.cx5m.net/cx5m-ii128-msx2-conversion

I see only differences are VRAM size and BIOS (& subBIOS). Do typical (not BASIC) games even care about the BIOS?

And speaking of MSX2, in Japan they didn't ever sell CX5M II, but CX7M which already is MSX2? How come there is no info at all about CX7M in the msx.org wiki?

Which page? False alarm, probably.

VGMPlay can play back VGM music files on the SFG-05. Synthesix can use the MIDI interface.

There are a whole bunch of manuals in the PassionMSX manuals section.

I think with the YRM-104 FM Music Macro cartridge you can use it from Basic.

Yes.

The wiki pages were added recently, only for the CX5M and all similar machines I think (there are a lot :)). Feel free to add a page about the CX7M.

Whether they sold the CX5MII in Japan, I don’t know. The CX7M was to my knowledge indeed only sold in Japan, and in Russia a similar machine was distributed, the YIS503IIIR.

I'll check with my virus analysts tomorrow whether this virus alert is legit or if it is a false positive:
Virus: Script.Trojan.JSRedirector.C (Engine B)

The website is infected with a script malware. Luckily the site where the injected code should be redirecting to is no longer working. The owner of the website must clean all his HTML pages!

Yes. There is an appended script on that page that leads to another, probably malicious site. Luckily is should be down already.
