  • 50hz sucks
I made a little test project to compare the the volume of fm, psg and sample playback from exporting as wav in DefleMask and playing back on hardware from the rom builder.

Listen: https://instaud.io/jlo (instaud.io can stream lossless wav files)
I added the voices in post processing ^
To understand FM, I think of each OP as an OSC that can also be a LFO.

What's your Genesis' motherboard model? Did you know that every revision of the Genesis hardware had different volume balanced between PSG, Samples and FM?

I didn't know that.

MD2 VA1 PAL (with MegaAMP v1.2 installed).

I was running at 60hz when recording the test.

Yeah. Mine is Model 2 VA1 NTSC (yeah - I live State-side) which distorts at near max volumes and is pretty filtered but not filtered to death like some revisions. I am planning on building a MegaAmp for my console as well, unfiltered of course since I am so used to the arcade FM sound which is so crisp it's like a digital cucumber.  :)

That, and I might have a way soon to test even my stuff out on my system! So happy!
