Bizzare topic I know, but didn't want to waste the boards time with 2 seperate threads laugh

1st q. Is it a known bug that some tunes in 720 have the wrong volume (infact, is it even a bug?) My tape of the original soundtrack is nearly worn out and I must render a cd version . Granted the drums are FM and not the pcm ones off the tape, but it's still the best 2151 roar in the world!

2nd q. Were there any systems that threw a 2151 (or any other FM YMx) through a filter before it reached the jamma connector?

Thanks!

Kenwa

For volume, your best bet is to turn off M1's normalizer and find a good fixed volume setting that works across the songs. (In Bridge, click off the Normalization icon and use the volume slider. For commandline M1, use -n to turn off normalization and -vX to set a fixed volume level where 50 is half, 100 is full, 200 is 2x amplify, etc).

As far as I know nobody filtered the YMs, not even the full-size keyboards that used them (e.g. the Yamaha DX-7). FM synth with a nice resonant analog filter could definitely make some interesting sounds I imagine :-)

Yeh, it's what I'm doing my my trusty ol' DX7, a bit o'kit and a shedload of cabling. Most likely though my efforts will sound more "SHADDUP!" than Sega...
