Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, Gigabyte EX58-UD5 motherboard, Core i7 920 (no overclocking), Radeon HD4870 (no overclocking), Xonar Essence ST soundcard.  Wouldn't be the first time this video card has caused me problems; it also hardware renders 4:2:0 badly (reds are not filtered properly, resulting in a blocky look) and the only way around this is to get a different card.

I should point out that I use the functionality of both my Xonar Essence ST soundcard (audio out) and the EX58-UD5's onboard (Realtek) audio chip (input, both analog and digital).

great to see the new PC-Engine implementation, i hope the people at the famitracker will make some good bundled tutorial DMF's soon

by the way, is it possible to change the shape of the channel 2 LFO? (like the one for FDS chip)

What are you meaning with "change the shape"?, the LFO of the PC-Engine is not a "sine", "triangle", "square" LFO, it is something like FM Synthesis, you can use the Waveform of the Channel 2 in order to create the shape. Regards.

oh OH

you should put that into the manual because i don't think many people know the capabilities of the HuC6280

I'm not interested in adding that type of info inside the manual, it is too much precise and the manual will become a garbage ball, DefleMask is only a Multi-System tracker and inside his manual there will be things related only to DefleMask, and not directly to the systems' behavior. There are lot of info on www about the systems, why should I repeat all of that inside the manual?.

Hello there, Delek! I have to second HertzDevil's (nicetas_c) suggestion to add behaviour to the manual. I've been through hell and back trying to use the YMU759 and I've had to resort to using presets and the other chips. Though I can't really complain, Deflemask is awesome!
Also, do you plan on adding any other chips?

Yes, NES is already added, with RAW PCM samples support (DefleMask 8 will be released soon, with lot of news). And after that release I will add SID and other chips.

1.) I think that unless if you add FME-7 or PCM support, then making yet another NES tracker is basically pointless. But you said that you'd add PCM support, and since the FME-7 is just a Master System chip anyways, I think it's worth it.
2.) Have you considered open-sourcing the project? Sorry, couldn't resist.
3.) You might want to either get some people to help you write/rewrite the manual, or turn it into a wiki altogether.

1) I added RAW PCM support, it is a feature not present in most NES trackers (for example, Famitracker do not have it), it is true 7bits PCM rather than the noisy ADPCM.
Btw, the NES was the system that start my chipmusic passion in my childhood, so I am forced by my heart to support it.
2) Yes, I'm considering that, but while I'm available, this is a closed source project.
3) Yes, want that so bad.

1.) Nice! Though PornTracker already has that. What I really want though is Sunsoft FME-7 (5B) expansion, which is just another Master System chip. And by the way, could you add Master System PCM support? (link: http://www.smspower.org/Development/SN76489)
2.) Alright.
3.) Let's go!   ;)

Raw PCM, huh? Really cool.

And, speaking of raw PCM, do you have any plans on adding support for extra PCM "channels" through $4011? (As seen in: http://forums.nesdev.com/viewtopic.php?t=7309) This would make Deflemask the first tracker ever to support this, if I recall correctly.

That would be awesome! How does it work exactly?
And also, is FME-7 really that hard to do?

Would it be possible to get VIC-20 support? :o

So PCM support is coming to the huc6280? What about paired channel PCM support? That gives you exactly 10bit DAC output (no fancy PWM needed, just write the lower 5bits to one channel and the upper 5bits to the second channel. Just make sure the have the volumes of the two channels set accordingly for this)? With 10bit DAC output, you could soft mix a few channels. Heh, there's just waayy too many possibilities for all kinds of tricks to support.

 As for samples, Batman on the PC-Engine has a nice approach for the base guitar instrument. It's a simple 5bit DAC sample at fixed frequency of 7khz. The instrument is divided into two parts. The attack sample and then the loop sample (forward looping). You can use the DDA mode volume to envelope the looping sound too (http://www.pcedev.net/audio/batman.mp3 and www.pcedev.net/audio/batman.zip <- test rom to play the samples via button presses). I think there was something like 25 pairs/sets of samples to cover a little over two octaves.
