Re: Yamaha YMF7x4 Guide

Update, I got a 724 based card yesterday and tested it out, first experience with XG. It's pretty impressive! for $10. Compared with the (ahem) quite-a-lot-more I paid for my SC-55. I think, soundwise, it is just as capable. Certainly once you PowerYMF it and use the 4.61MB extended bank, the XG …
