I've tried running Dosbox with oplmode=opl2 and oplmode=opl3 set in the conf file, and with the track I'm benchmarking, I've found that it sounds exactly the same in opl2 as in opl3, except that opl3 is a bit louder. So what's going on? Is OPL synthesized the exact same way in Doxbox? A guy who knows a lot about old skule sound cards says OPL2 and OPL3 should be different.
Another question I have: capturing the OPL produces a DRO file. Is DRO a wave, or is it OPL code, requiring the my decoder (in this case WinAmp) will make it sound the way it is supposed to? Is it supposed to create something different between OPL2 and OPL3?
