Having to work with .ym recordings recently, i tested those on your player (as you suggested in the Hatari thread i created about my .ym logging worries
And while the instabilities (missing registers changes) can also be heard in it (and then really dues to Hatari YM logging process), i must say it's really much more faithful than ST Sound player.
ST Sound can sound really wrong on some things, like noise (noticeably in hit-hat use).
So thanks for this!
Hi thanks for reporting back
and i am glad if you can use it for something
maybe i am going out on a limb, with what i am about to write, so please bear with me.
one of the biggest flaw, with the ym format is that most files is captured in 50hz i think that if you raise it to 200hz, it should be much more accurate, and I also think that it should not be so hard, to make a program that record the ym chip register every 200hz (maybe it have already been done) and save it to a file.
many people are looking down on the ym format (ym way), but it actually has some advantages over SNDH format and real time synth player.
one is that the time (CLK cycle) is constant, and an other is that it doesn't take much processor power, and the third i think that it would be much easier to make it run, in other language like basic. (not sure about the last point)
i am thinking of add export to YM file in my program, if somebody could use it.
you can self import new ym files to the program, just unpack the ym files and load them.
just remember that it can play ym-Sid/sample files.
it was never meant for the program to play ym files, if was just add to test my sound chip emulation.
