Sega Genesis: SSG sound output with FM instrument
« on: January 12, 2017, 12:02:07 PM »
I'm working on a sega genesis tune, and it's working fine. But there is a pattern where the PSG channels don't play at all when I start the pattern individually. It works OK if I start from the previous pattern. 

Later I noticed I choose the wrong instrument, it was a FM instrument instead of a STD one. When you select a FM instrument to play in the PSG channel, it works as if it was a full volume STD instrument, and only if PSG is playing alone. But it won't work it there are some other FM instruments playing in the FM channels.

So Deflemask could be more consistent to either won't allow FM instruments to play in the PSG channel, or always let them play. At the moment it depends on the context.
