Hyper Duel - Sounds just as good as the Saturn version despite the "lowtech" soundhardware

Macross(1) - Great chiptune like music

Fire Barrel - I might be wrong about this but i have not found it in M1 ;-)

Lethal Crash Race - well, most tunes are technoshit but three non-technotracks are some of the best tunes i ever heard.

Skull Fang - even if the compositions are great so are the soundquality shit in the arcade version... So much for Data East's 32-bit MLC-system... they don't even mention the soundcapabilities of it if you look here .

Re:Skull Fang, aye, I have the pre-downmixed OST CD and it's awesome. Shame they're downsampled it to about 4kHz for the PCB wink

MLC has the YMZ280B, which I call the "what, we needed to have sound?" chip. It's sort of the late 90s equivalent of the OKI6295.

If you mean "Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon" please have your ears removed at the next available opportunity.

No, newer stuff on the SH3 Cave hardware. Like Mushihime Sama, etc. I know, it isn't practical to add these to M1 because we don't have the necessary sound cores, and it may not be practical to extract the sound code from the program ROMs.

The YMZ770C chip has a whole speech engine onboard. A quick look at the Japanese data sheet shows:
  • Phrase data decoder
  • Volume/pan/bass boost
  • 8 channels and 8 sequencers
  • Analog and digital output

For pinball music, I'll have to go with the pre-BSMT2K music of Brian Schmidt (specifically, Black Knight 2000 [one of the best soundtracks for a pinball game, IMO], Swords of Fury, and Back to the Future), as well as Pinbot and The Machine: Bride of Pinbot.

I've also have an affinity for the Lord of the Rings pinball music (the sound hardware for this game uses an Atmel AT91 [an ARM7] for sound, according to the PinMAME specs).

For video games, I like the Joust 2 music (Joust 2's sound board is the same as Pinbot's).

It's interesting this thread got revived today since I have an SH3 Cave board in my possession (it's (c) 2005 though so we're not even gonna think about dumping it yet). Hopefully someone can translate the YMZ770C datasheet when it comes time.
