SMS VST - SUPER PSG - SN76489 + (AY3-8910 EG) EXTENDEDPosted: Thu Feb 20, 2014 7:55 am
I just feel I had to post here about this as smspower.org pretty rocks and were very useful for any kind of technical informations!
INFOS at alyjameslab.com (website)
youtube channel with previews
Super PSG is a bit perfect emulation of an SN76489 chip (SMS Version) + Timer Interrupt routine modulation + the emulated envelope part of the AY3-8910 (MSX, SX SPECTRUM...)
It features band-limited waveforms to have a nice analog sound with no aliasing.
All you need to squeeze the hell of a square wave :)
Including Timer Modulation Tricks, High speed modulation (up to 300Hz), PCM sample import that can be played through the chip volume register which gives them a unique sound (PCM or PWM way) etc...
Some tracker like "tables" and a unique way of circuit bent the Noise channel! witch basically gives you the ability to reach some ATARI 2600 like metal noise or mess it up in a unique way, all of that in real-time.
Almost everything can be automated or MIDI learned.
Basically the main features of SPSG are:
SN76489 Sega Master System/ Genesis Version Emulation + some extended features.
(see timer modulation for example >> http://chipmusic.org/forums/topic/12185/sega-psg-pulse-width-modulation-on-1-cha... )
in order to make some advanced sound out of the simple PSG.
The output can be converted from MIDI into a .vgm file using the free tool M2v_PSG by Valley bell. SPSG outputs envelope, modulation and pitch as MIDI message. (SID effect needs 22050 PPQN resolution so far only available in Reaper..)
Can also work as a controller for a modified version of the Little Scale's open source SN76489 interface.
Should work with GENMDM too.
It is available on the same basis as FMDrive Vsti (YM2612 Megadrive FM chip emulation).minimum donation of 10.00 €
Here is an audio test with the real SMS and Alex Kidd ^_^ + custom sounds in the end of the video...
Here are some audio demos with some tracks by Mc Alby ad Yuzo Koshiro :)
Noise LFSR circuit bending >>
Stock Sn76489 SID effect test >>
SPSG VST SID effect >> MIDI >> VGM proof of concept...!
Here we go, this is a quick test with the PSG clocked at 1Mhz, only one channel and SID modulation..
(link should be here)
the greatest accuracy for exporting a midi file with the SPSG modulation as been made through Reaper at 22050 PPQN.
Hope you like it and help me share the word :)

|For some reason, I didn't realize this post 4 years ago. I found couple of examples in twitter, and I just read it can be used in a "REAL" Sms. Is that true?|

I did this test tune a couple of months ago with Super PSG. It's quite interesting, and I am making a song in LMMS with it, although it's taking a while since I'm slow with piano rolls.

almost - I mean if you can change PSG channels volumes and frequencies at high rates, such as 22,000 or even 44,000 times a second, you can do pretty everything, as Maxim's pcmenc demo showed.
But of course you can't do anything else while the processor is handling this.
