Yesterday Infinite released their MRC Under Water Challenge. To encourage Moonsound owners to upgrade to 640 KB of SRAM they made a one-minute teaser to get an impression of the music. Happy Listening!

Hmmm.. that WHOOOOOOOOOOSH is quite annoying. Thank God the real thing lacks 'em ;P And..errr.. just to tease Wolfie a bit: this MWM also works with 512kB SRAM Wink

I agree with snout. If you make a "WUOOOOOOOOOOOSH-less" version, I will prefer it. Btw, amazing the quality that a Moonsound can get...

Releasing songs with annoying sounds in it it just like releasing crippleware. It doens't fit you, Wolf, to release rubbish like this. Don't do it again please.

Run the demo in blueMSX and use the "Saving music" feature of the emulator !

You'll get a .wav file that you can convert into a .mp3 file !

It's a teaser... I already discussed this with bifi/chao5 internally.. and releasing a full mp3 wasn't planned this time.. You might get ppl who say: "hey, why should I get more sram when I can listen the mp3's".That's why this one only has fragments. And the whooses ... well, another reason to get sram to get woosh-free music Smile

to add: basically I wouldn't mind releasing a full-quality mp3 at all, as long as it doesn't discourage ppl to get sram.. Smile

The full length song is about 6 minutes, people! And the WHOOOOOOOSH! sounds are just in this MP3 version, not it the original tune... Come on, what do you take us for? Smile

Hmm replaying coral 2 with bluemsx is not very good, it makes a lot of errors.

I agree a teaser should not be the whole song. But putting the woosh sounds in this teaser makes the song a lousy tune. It sucks! Wolf has a very high standard and I think this is a really bad move to make if you like to keep up quality. There's no quality in this teaser at all.

Don't put the focus on this teaser that much.. it's only a teaser -and not the entry!-.. , if I've time I could try to duck the wooshes a bit. I didn't save the project file of the teaser, so it's either a new teaser, a ducked teaser or no new teaser at all. Don't put this teaser in your daily winamp playlist.., it's not meant for that.. just listen to it once, make up your mind about upgrading to 640kb and c'est ca ..

Hmm ... that's a little strange to read this as the blueMSX Moonsound emulation is based on the openMSX source ... maybe what you call errors is not errors in music emulation, but problems with DirectX ...

who said openMSX' OPL4 emulation is perfect? Wink I heard wolf_ complaing a lot about the emulation. Envelopes, tremolo, vibrato and some technical stuff have to be improved before it can be called 'perfect' emulation.

Ok, Moonsound emulation is not perfect but the post of msd is without any little precision.

I've just checked the problem of clicks or bad noises that can happen in blueMSX.

On my Athlon-MK6, with the default values, there are indeed clicks or bad noises.

But if i use SYNC 1ms and a sound buffer of 350ms, there's almost no more problem !

Now, if the problem is elsewhere, then it could be interesting to get more precision from msd.
