Any news about AY8930?

Postby Stefan jL » Fri Jul 14, 2006 11:51 pm

There was some talk about putting a AY8930 in the ST... on the YM rockerz bbs i think, was any chips even found for this experiment?
And more important will there be any support from coders if lots AY8930 turns up? And from the scene in general since you need to solder off the old YM2149 to put the AY chip there insted.

Just searched thru the YM rockerz board and the old messages was still there, it was "Lars Baumstark" who was searching for AY8930... and i guess thats where the problem was, it's hard to find those chips even if several chipbrokers list them it's difficult for privat persons to buy small amount of the chips.

I got one last year and tested in my ST... i mentioned it the following thread:
http://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=6520&start=20

The output is too soft/muffled wich means some changes need to be done in the ST... and more important there must be software that uses the AY8930 :)
I tried to build an amplifier circuit (using transistors) but failed as i don't understand how it really works :?
