Would be nice to incorporate an SSM2044 filterchip on one of those boards. The best from two worlds:)

I have a question... How far into the project have you actually gotten? Do you have a prototype already or are you still planning/pre-designing it?

Wow, this sounds llike an incredible pipe dream. But there is some really great minds in the FM synthesis and chiptune communities, so I believe you will get it done. If you pull this off I will bowdown to you in worship.

Any thoughts as to how many will be made? I know, Its probably too early for that. It seems like everytime someone makes something cool in a small run I dont get one, like firestarters Prophet 64 Midi Interface.

The first run will be 100 FM-Beauty kits - I hope that people will be interested. Right now we have YMF288 (before I'll get YMF297 for final products) and 2xSAA1099 to install on prototype. I hope You will be able to get Your copy Kid Very Happy

Not yet - we want to be sure that everything is OK and reliable, so we don't have publishing dates for now - it's just too early Smile

Could I ask you guys for some questions?

1. Do You want YM2151 onboard?
2. Do You want 2xSAA1099 onboard?
3. Do You want 2xSSG (YM2149 compatible) + 8xADPCM drum in one chip onboard? (YMZ705 LSI)
4. What do You think about Text2Speech LSI? Or maybe just ADPCM/PCM samples are easier/better??

For now it has OPL3 + OPN3-L hardware compatybility + 2x 8-bit DAC driven by 16-bit timers.

Feel free to claim, scream, ask etc Smile

It depends on how much extra development is involved in adding them. If it added on an extra 6 months/year to release I would say no. Also if it made it a lot more expensive that would suck.

If I had to choose, I would choose the SAA1099. I always wanted a way to mix FM with PSG, I think that would be really sweet. I think 1 is enought though, if I remember correctly that chip outputs six square waves and noise, thats a whole lot of PSG.

I also would really love the YM2151, probably more than the opl3. I like the SSG also, but its not integral for me. 8x ADPCM is very nice. I dont care for text to speech at all, its simply not something I would use.

So my opinion is a big yes to 1-3, especially the the SAA1099 (1 is probably enough tho) and the YM2151, as long as it doesnt push back release or increase price by alot. And no to text to speech.

Man, the more I hear about FM Beauty the more crazed I get. |It sounds almost too good to be true.
