Very good song indeed, but I always have the impression that FM music sound best with anime-like songs or Japanese game soundtracks.

Never thought this thread would be that long, but now, for something different.....

I found this one recently, on the Crossfire Designs page: https://youtu.be/nfOxZI36xxE
Made in a tracker called Easy AdLib. Never heard of it. I really like how it sounds though.

I suppose I should post a few of my own works in this thread since it seems to fit the theme.

Everything I've posted in this thread is an OPL2 (YM3812) composition/arrangement. For the recordings, however, I've captured the S/PDIF output from an OPL3-based AWE32.

Sorry for raising this from the dead, but could I please ask how you recorded this in more detail? As you say, the Genpei War music is very impressive. It almost sounds like there's stereo and reverb going on there somehow, despite the OPL2 being mono (as far as I know).

1. Where did you manage to find the original game (Genpei War)?
2. Did you record it by simply running the game and recording from S/PDIF out?
3. What are the specs of the machine you ran it on?
4. Any extra effects or processing applied?

Thank you!

If you did not know, then there was an IBM sound card using four-operator synthesis (actually analogue to YM2151). This has never been widely distributed because it was deemed too expensive. Silpheed and Space Quest 3 were among those who supported it.

The initial poster didn't specify if we should count modern OPLx/OPNA/etc-compatible music as well, so for now i'll assume that's a yes.
This person's entire channel is full of various nice OPL2/OPL3 compositions: https://www.youtube.com/user/Dark0Lord7/featured?app=desktop
Also rather impressive and full sounding OPL3 track made by a friend https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wIS5elxBI0
Not sure if a shameless self-plug is okay, but here we go i guess, a collab i did over a year ago https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSmqN6iP_lE
