On the MSXRio' 2010 Fair in March, Ricardo Oazem of Tecnobytes released his soundboard: OPL4 Shockwave. The Shockwave is entirely compatible with the Moonsound, using OPL4 and 1Mb of Sample RAM. Oazem uses a DAC to improve sound quality. The soundboard costs about 160 Euro (shipment not included), and Oazem is thinking about shipment overseas as well.

I welcome any new hardware developments. I wonder how this device sounds compared to a moonsound. Maybe, someone should up some mp3 so we can hear the improved sound quality?

Nice, but expensive. Would be around 185 euro including shipping! So far, I'm very happy with my MoonSound with 1MB SRAM Cool

Does this one "fix" the problem where the location of ROM also forces the first 384 tones to be rom tones?
