YMWave – Revision B Schematics

The PCB files of this board revision are sent to the factory. This new version will include a mono switch and separate channel outputs. These boards should be error-free, and therefore sellable. :)

PCBs are here!

Today, I just recieved the first ten PCBs for my chiptune synth kit. The black solder screen looks really good. :D
I’m now waiting for the last parts to make a prototype and to design its case.

YMWave Schematics

Here are my YM2149 Synth schematics.
Ten PCBs will be manufactured this month, as a first test. :)

No Arduino bootloader anymore, only plain avr-gcc code.

News about my YM2149 Synth


I’ve got some messages asking me if I planned to sell a finished version of my YM2149/AY-3-8910 synth. The short answer is: yes.

Schematics and software code will be public. :)

More to come!

YM2149 sound generator, Arduino and fast pin switching

I spent my childhood with an Atari STe and its bleepy sounds. Recently, I purchased its sound generator on eBay: the YM2149 chip (made by Yamaha) or the AY-3-8910 (made by General Instruments).

I would like to make a chiptune MIDI synthesizer with it, but I thought it was a good start to play existing tunes.
