Hello! I finally connected KORG TR-Rack + Yamaha MU100 + ROLAND MT32 to a computer and keyboard to play some music 😀 Also can add Yamaha PSR-36 (FM). All instruments has different configuration and list of sounds.
Just thought about standalone box like those Sound modules I mentioned before but FM, yes 128 sounds + drums.
I don't like desktops like mine. I build desktop based on AMD K6-2+, but that creature generates a lot of sh*t out of sound card and I don't know what is the reason, is it sound card itself or the whole thing with all those cracking/tracking sounds. I packed that machine, loaded with all possible things, USB 2.0/Internal/external cards, two sound cards Sound Blaster 16 (with real OPL!) and Live!, but the whole thing is just too big and clumsy. Supposed to be my main entertainment and hobby machine with old games operating from MS-DOS 6/Win 3.1/Win NT 4/Win 98 SE/Win XP and it is like that crazy... I even bought ROLAND MT32 for that! but... I think I'm gonna pass on idea of having that desktop in the future. I'm pretty satisfied with Boxer application on Mac, it is emulating even MT-32 pretty accurate too. Ok enough with lyrics....
So the subject is STANDALONE OPL3 FM module with 128 sounds and drums on 10 channel. Not just random FM module which is on the market.
