Hi friends.

Well, let me present you the Pop!Art VGM Music Player.

Pop!Art is a VGM Music player that I'm working on since the last year and it was strongly presented on the Brazilian MSX community few months ago and now it is ready for the "international market".

Pop!Art can deal with all sound chips present on the MSX standard, like SCC, YM2151, YM2413, OPL3 and OPL4, PSG and Philips Music Module (OPL1). The source code is written in Turbo Pascal and ASM and will be released under GPLv3.

The playlist below is just showing my latest tests using YM2413, but on my Youtube's channel you can find some older videos of Pop!Art performing sound playing with all other MSX sound chips.

Here is the latest YM2413 tests.


Here is my channel on Youtube.

Hi Friend.

Today it can play just VGM songs compatible with SCC, OPL3/4, YM2413, OPL1, PSG and YM2151. These chips were found in several Arcades, MSX and other machines, so if there are VGMs for these machine, it can play. Smile

In future I'll add support to some interesting extra features on it.
