Does anybody have any ideas on how to add a real OPL2/OPL3 chip to this box?
For example, there is an OPL2LPT adapter that outputs OPL2 over a parallel port that can maybe be exposed on the weeCee?
Any other ideas?
I know the Crystal chip onboard supports an OPL2 clone but I'm wondering if we can have authentic sound as well?
I believe the Crystal chip has both OPL2 for Adlib and OPL3 clone for the main FM synth. I believe if you look closer on the Serdashop S2 you can find docs on how to load up custom instrument sets and use them. I've never done that specifically before but have heard of it being done. Additionally there are other wavetable synth boards from Serdashop that you can try, such as the X2GS (which requires you take the aluminum shell off ofc), but yeah.
