I want be able to write converters from/to DefleMask.
First - I want to create GEMS (Sega Sound Driver) to DefleMask converter.
Second... I don't know :)

I already made GEMS to midi simple converter (without instruments, volume/pitch effects).
But. It will be great, if there is a way to convert directly into DefleMask and play it like on SEGA.

It can be: plugins support, or export in well defined format (even readable text), or other way.

If you are really interested in the DefleMask Module Format, I could send to you the DMF File Specs.

DMF generator works great, but not enough).  ;D
Something lost due converting GEMS->DefleMask->ROM (not including DAC)
Some instruments with such high definition sounds horrible for me. :-[
Next step: include DAC samples.

About DefleMask:
1) Annoying issue: frequently crashes without errors, when playing song
2) No PSG options. (20xx effect not enough) Or me just blind?
3) Strange, for me, tempo settings. This is reason why tempo not precise in this test.

Pan added (left/right).
Dac added.
Just see performance. :)

DefleMask (v9.0): need many fixes
1) Sometimes eating notes. (I mean note exists in pattern, but not played)
2) Depending on time when stop pressed - You can't test instrument by keybroad.
3) I saw bug when set volume 3B in each note - last PSG played even without any events.
4) Export rom with DAC - in result DAC only. ;D

Strange volume behavior: any lower global value than 7F in result DIFFERENT song.
For example 7F*0.80=65. (80% multiplier) In result - not Comix Zone anymore.
7F volume in DefleMask. 80% volume in Windows mixer -> still Comix Zone.

About MIDI -> I don't know good way to convert timing from MIDI to such low definition.
For example: definition 480 pulses per beat in MIDI, and max 60 for NTSC Genesis (as I know).
But here, in DefleMask, I see that 24 pulses per beat playing very slow on 3/3 speed 1 base time!
In this test 12 pulses per beat.

I don't promise anything :).

This is awesome!

PS: About the bugs, please upload a DMF as example, seems like a misunderstanding about YM2612 vol control and other non bug things.

WOW I love it!, you definitely should make a video or upload it somewhere, nobody done that before and sounds brilliant.

I did a small change to a triangle's note, on the first frame.

Would be really great to have Toe Jam & Earl tracks converted to DMFs. :D
