Brandnew synth. The video is ticking all my boxes…
Chips , circuit board , black case that is screwed together , sockets for leads , sliders.
It’s obviously a …… ?
So what’s the sound card they’re pulling the chip from?
I can only remember awe32 / sound blaster cards. Fm / general midi
There was a Yamaha card but can’t remember what that was Sgxxxx or something.
And twisted typically do retro sound chips
Looks like it might be a Sound Blaster 16. Some of these had Yamaha FM chips onboard, so that might be what we’re seeing here.
Creative Sound Blaster 16 MCD CT1750, apparently.
Edit: no SCSI though, ATA for CD-ROM drives…
But there were models with a SCSI controller, too I believe. (The one above actually…)
FM drum machine.
Letters printed on the case spells beat. Or beats. Or teats.
It’s definitely not the MegaFM, it has much more sliders…, the buttons say:
The LED matrix in the beginning looks like from their Octopus sequencer module.
My educated guess…it’s 2x that Soundblaster Yamaha FM chip mentioned above plus Octopus sequencer, with many sliders in a box. A MegaFM Mk2 maybe, that can be used as FM drummachine, as mentioned above? Very interesting …!
Looks like a 6 operator MegaFM - if in any way possible…?
If he used the YM262…it’s only 4 Operator FM.
Right but it was the 6 sets of faders in the video I was referring to. Could be for something else though.
someone better at that than me might be able to better extract the front
“Zoom in… Enhance…”
Can definitely see: bd, sd, tom, ch, oh, cym?, synth?, synth?, synth?, synth?
Looks like a drum machine
And song controls – it’s a groove box!
Oh how interesting!
Yep, FM drummachine. 8 Tracks. Nice!
