If you are also familiar with Atari ST sound, SPSG VST can also reach them and even go further with extended controls, and even midi control over a real SN76489 sound chip with VGM conversion or with a special hardware that YOU can built.
The system also works with the GENMDM interface designed
by Little Scale.

SPSG does not emulate a Sega Master Sytem console but the sound chip that was inside,
which basic function is reproduced here but enhanced a lot. The system is totaly new and enhanced.
Secondly the use of Sega name and logo type font is use strictly here for the legitimate
purpose of comparison and tribute to this great console,
and it does not in any way imply SEGA®'s permission or endorsement of the SPSG product.
FMDRIVE was first made for personal use and is now donationware.
The SN76489 PSG was the natural buddy of YM2612 FM chip on the Sega Megadrive console but it was the principal and only sound chip of the legendary Sega Master System.
SPSG is a bit perfect emulation of the chip so you can even tweak the master clock to change frequency range/accuracy!
The Z80 cpu can emulate some YM2149 / AY-3 8910 features (SX Spectrum, MSX, Atari ST) on the SN76489, programming complex amplitude & pitch envelopes, arpeggios, looping and even wavetables. You can also play PCM samples on the volume register or raw PWM.
The Noise channel bit configuration can also be hacked in real time, if you want to and will unlock some awesome 8bit sounds...
SPSG is a fantastic synth suitable for chip music and also a powerful 8-bit tool for modern music production. Check the manual and see by yourself!
