Yes, here is the first DalSoRi R2.

Basic tests were complete.
Now I need some help. How can I prove the usefulness of MSX-AUDIO BIOS v1.3?

A great test case is the Firehawk HDD version by FRS:

@JunSoft

You can also play any MSX-Music BASIC songs with it. Just type _AUDIO once to initialize the BIOS, then you'll be able to play those songs without modification.

Tip: Try the version of the BIOS with experimental stereo support for a much enhanced listening experience. The user feedback about the stereo support have been very positive.

I have tested some software, here goes my brief feelings.

1. MoonBlaster 1.4
- sound is enhanced by increased channels. Better than nothing, obviously.

2. Basic program for MSX-MUSIC (CALL MUSIC, after CALL AUDIO)
- some songs are worse than originals.

3. Firehawk HDD version
- sound is quite impressive. Nice stereo BGM.

If you have other software to recommend, let me know.

Thanks!
