I vote for ATARI POKEY because Raster Music Tracker doesn't work in wine.

OPL3! I am an FM head.  ;D

Seriously, though, while the SNES is a cool little sampler and has limitations of its own, I would LOVE to be able to have a direct competitor for the Adlib Tracker II (friendly competition, of course) that is able to be used with a modern OS using a mouse, a thing which Adlib Tracker II lacks as it is still DOS-based. I see why they want to keep it DOS-based for backward compatibility reasons, but as much as Adlib Tracker II is a legend in its own right WHY couldn't they just have worked with somebody to give it at least mouse support for mouse users? A no-brainer, right?

OPL3 deserves a modern touch imo and is, of course, backward compatible with OPL2..

I... am gonna have to vote for SNES.
It's by far the most recognizable system here, and the most likely to get use overall. I like FM synthesis, but a lot of what I want out of it I can emulate with the Genesis, so that's alright. Atari POKEY doesn't seem all that unique to me, Amiga is very easy to produce with a lot of other programs.

SNES would be most notable for me because there is no way to make it that's particularly legitimate on Linux at the moment. VSTs and all the programs that can do it (except it2spc) are buggy and hard to emulate, and it2spc is kind of a pain to set up. The only thing that worries me is that it seems like a bit of a massive thing to set up, but I'm still super into the idea of emulating it. It'd be an awesome help to be able to do it on Linux.

YM2151 is the obvious choice for me.

It could be considered YM2612's big arcade brother, and it definitely would be the most logical step to take next, without taking too much time to develop like, for instance, a totally different system like the SNES.
This way, Deflemask will be richer without being stuck in development for too long, IMHO. After that, I'm sure that adding a new one won't be a problem.

Also, easily tracking YM2151 today is not really an option, as opposed to the other systems, so it would make Deflemask that much useful.

YM2151 all the way.

It's the YM2612's natural evolution, and those sounds are simply the best in giving goosebumps.

Hope not to be off topic, but instead of another system, I would definitely vote for multiple systems at once! That would be really cool IMO. Nes + gameboy, or even 2 simultaneous gameboys, wow!
My 2 cents.
You can already launch multiple defle instances, and make them start at the same time

OPL3 =)
because it is a key to various systems, and good SNES trackers will probably forever be impossible~

I'd really love YM2151 + 4 PCM Channels.
How about YM2151 + 24 PCM(Namco c140) Channels?
What I like about this is that you can mix FM with samples and it is sounds cool!
example: http://vgmrips.net/packs/pack/dragon-saber-after-story-of-dragon-spirit-namco-system-2
I mean, I don't want YM2151 alone, I just like idea of mixing FM with PCM very much..
----------------------------
P.S I like OPL3 but, considering that there's already a trackers for that chip, I don't think it should be in top priority for now..

For me it's YM2151 + SEGA PCM.

The best solution for me would be to have different PCM combinations to associate with the YM2151 - but this can happen at a later time, YM2151 alone would already be awesome!

(While of course SNES may be cool, I feel its mellotron quality too hard to handle for my limited capabilities:D)

thank you so much for this survey, Delek!

I'm kind of on the fence here between SNES and OPL3, but considering there are semi-accessible ways of writing OPL3 music (FM Kingtracker, AdlibTracker II, etc.) and absolutely no easy way to produce SNES music

No easy way?
OPL3 definitely. I was on the tie with SNES, but there is actual SNES tracker out there that looks good to use: https://code.google.com/p/snesgss/

Meanwhile, offers for OPL3/Adlib music making are laughable and Adlib Tracker's 2 (which to most people using modern trackers like Deflemask or Modplug is not up to scruff) community is very toxic. So we either need new OPL3 tracker for Windows that works good or support from existing tracker like Deflemask.

You may try asking them for it on their Facebook page. Oh wait...

I voted for POKEY because there aren't many software supporting it and it's an old and legendary chip! (and it sounds awesome)

mod seems less useful because there are plenty software already doing this.


YM2149 / AY-3-8910 is also a legendary chip, it could be cool too (but it's not in the list)

I like OPL2. OPL3... why not?

Dual SID please. Although, why limit to two? Also, since this is easier than adding a brand new system, I'd much like OPL, too.
