DEMO Song #1 | DEMO Song #2 | DEMO Song #3 | Recorded using Crystal CS4236 OPL3
- LLSID 1.2F - Is an MS-DOS exclusive SID emulator that uses real onboard, genuine or clone, OPL3 sound chip to process SID music.
Varying on type of OPL3 also varies the final result in sound tone, color and shape. The examples were recorded on Crystal CS4236 OPL3 clone, and sound pretty amazing.
In the archive you will find LLSID main executable and documentation that came with the progrm..
- LLSID 1.4 - Is an MicroSoft Windows exclusive SID emulator that uses an emulation program for OPL3 SID sound process.
It comes with an custom made emulator. I tried to use the newest YMF262.DLL but the program wont start.
In the archive you will find LLSID Win main executable, documentation thaht came with the program and OPL3 program emulator.
- SIDExamples - Are example songs i recorded and used to demonstrate this program. The archieve also contains Final Fantasy 7 Racing Chocobos SID song that doesn't work well with LLSID MS-DOS version, there is a bug that makes it sound horrible at a certain part.
This could also be a bug with Crystal CS4236 OPL3.
- Built in file browse
Support for PSID 1&2 and SIDPLAY SID+DAT combo files
Quite accurate reproduction, i only noticed errors in one song so far (For OPL3 (because that isn't obvious 😀 ))
Ability to be used with PATH command in Autoexec bath - It starts the file browser from the folder its called from
- LLSID 1.2F - Genuine or clone OPL3 sound chip, MS-DOS 5 or newer
LLSID 1.4 - YMF262.DLL , Windows operating system. It works under Windows 8.1 (tested)
The program can not play RSID file type. It reports it as - Unrecognised file type RSID. I have also noticed some small bugs in playback in a few files, for example Chocobo Racing song. I saw in the readme that there should be an source code somewhere and that LLSID2 is scrapped, but after a few hours of searching i didn't find a single archieve that contains the source code.
I found out the content and size of original archieves that contained the source:
- < llsid.exe (23 kb)
< SIDADSR.OBJ (121 bytes)
< SIDWAVES.OBJ (266 bytes)
< SID OPL.PAS (7 kb)
< LLSID.TXT (1 kb)
- < license-ymf262.txt (1 kb)
< LLSID.exe (83 kb)
< LLSID.TXT (886 bytes)
< SDL.DLL (88 kb)
< ymf262.dll (10 kb) [ These can be found on MAME Website, but they dont work ]
< ymf262.c (71 kb) [ Something is probably changed in the code of the plugin ]
< ymf262.h (1 kb) [ Or the code of the program it self ]
A shame that it stopped developing, truly awesome piece of software, OPL3 can produce some amazing sounds making some of those SIDs sound even more awesome.
If any one can help me find source code and additional info on this program i would GREATLY appreciate it! 😀
I have contacted the author of the program with questions about why has development stopped, information that his website is offline and question on where can i get the source code.
Developer, Da!NyL, replied that he stopped the development of the program because he lost the source code. 🙁
