I'm testing the VGMPLAY Ver1.3rc with Skate or Die - Title song from Tandy1000

on my Sanno MSX and PLAYSONIQ but I think some special effect/intruments are missing.

Hi alexito, thanks for testing. That's correct, it plays PCM on the DCSG using CPU stream control commands which VGMPlay does not support yet. There is an older version of that VGM which does not use those commands, as a result is requires a humongous amount of memory (~6MB) but it does work on MSX turboR with a custom VGMPlay build with the memory limit increased to 6MB. You can see it on my Youtube channel.

Thanks for the explanation I have checked the video and the screen show Playsoniq is dectected in my case I have Playsoniq connected on Tecnobytes Slot Expander (slot 2-3) but my screen show FRANKY is Detected and used maybe because your detection routine used the Memory Mapper Inside Playsoniq it is not working when I have it connected through Tecnobytes Slot Expander.

PS: any plan in the future to implement DAC feature using other MSX Audio Hardware upgrades.
and the older version of VGMPlay + Turbo R PCM works for both models A1-ST and A1-GT because I want to try on my ST

THUNDER FORCE II ---> OPENING
DJ BOY ---> ROUND 1 A
AIR BUSTER ---> SEA SIDE FRONT ROUND 1

after watching the video I have decided lowering the BASS from my speakers and now the Audio Output is definitely better.

PS: The High pitch in almost all my videos is because the quality of my camera phone mic it ........SUCK!!!!!!!!

I see, thanks for the good example Smile. I’ll see if I have some time to do some tests and still address this before the release.

Cool! I'm glad it seemed to be useful. Big smile

I personally find your videos interesting and they certainly would benefit of a better audio. Why don't you connect your audio out to another recording device and overdub your videos? Another suggestion would be you moving the camera a little bit, in order to better show your setup. Not really necessary, but could be interesting as well.

Sorry for the digression. You seem to be doing a great job at testing. Smile

Hmm strange, I’ll investigate that. It does produce sound though, right?

OPN2 DAC sample playback requires the CPU speed and the high-res timer of the turboR. Since the turboR already has a built in DAC, I didn’t see the need to support other ones… What would be your reason? Separate audio output?

Do you mean to say PCM doesn’t work on the ST with 1.3-rc1? Because afaik it has the DAC too.

Neato! Smile

The Thunder Force games have nice soundtracks, and since they don’t use PCM they work fine on MSX1 Smile.

When I record videos from real MSX most of the time connect my Mac to my mixer (the Behringer QX1002USB has line out via USB), and then later combine it in the video editing software. Though it would be nice if I could somehow send the audio directly to my mobile phone and record it directly with the video…

I did test of Carnivore 2 + MMM issue but build 1.3-rc1 is still not working properly when C2 is in lower slot. Btw, i think you might have opportunity to investigate on real HW on fair, i'll bring MMM if you want, just let me know Smile

Yep it is, or VGMPlay doesn’t work at all.

But are you saying there are problems on the ST? Or is everything working as expected?
