I got mine, soldered it up and after a re-socket and a bit of isopropyl on the second ya ha ha chip, I have sound! Woo.. Fired up Monkey2 and it seems to be working after a bit of emm386 startup config alteration.
There's slight distortion on the sound. I'm guessing that's normal for the adlib era? or do I have a crappy solder joint some place?
Word of enlightenment. If your sound is all 90% noise / distortion and 10% signal, you probably want to re-seat that smaller Yamaha chip in its socket.
Great product! Now for an LPT MPU / Midi interface for the MT32? 😉 ??
nice, that's great.
and welcome on the forum !!!
Can you try with a large headphone, if you still hear distortion ?
The amp is suitable for line out and also direct headphone,
best not to set it too high when using for line out to powered speakers
You can add the 'jepael bass boost' jumper for some sonic tweaking.
But sometimes distortion is in the instrument by design.
Does it sound like this, then? or more noise ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbPPHvGpPEc&t=308s
Some more LPT based sound generating projects in the pipeline, but an LPTMPU, is that useful ?
