Hi everyone,

I have a question/idea...

As I understand, the OPL chip had to be "programmed" in real time by the game as to make music.

Is it possible to somehow use this "code" to automatically program an FM soft synth, such as NI FM7? I mean, is there something that exists, or could be made to do that?

So as to have the sound in full quality on modern hardware, exactly as intended.

So far, I haven't found a good (ie. any) stand-alone emulator. ANd most emulators are too technical, and less musical, anyway. (I like the STEem Atari ST emulator - that s*** can make music - but no OPL. But it does have some kind of synthesizer - anyone?).

On the other side of the things, I still have the Pentium MMX with AWE32, and can boot it to play some games. But, it's not gonna live forever (although, it is 15 years in my possession, and hardware hasn't been changed for as long).

Cheers

FM7 and other various software FM synths don't seem to have all of the waveforms that OPL had. It would be nice if there was a dedicated OPL VSTi like VOPM, but as far as I know no one has made one yet.
