Plogue has announced the release of its new chipsynth MD plugin, a 16-bit four operator FM synthesizer for Windows and Mac. The plugin brings the sounds of the Sega Mega Drive, featuring a bit accurate OPN2 (YM2612) emulator combined with a SN76489-compatible square wave core (SPSG) and a special emulation of the very crunchy sample […]
The Sega Genesis, aka Mega Drive, was more than just a beloved game console. It was also a powerful FM synth – seriously. And now you get an accurate, powerful version as a plug-in, in chipsynth MD from Plogue.
If you’re a Sega fan, you know the sound of this instrument from the sunny, sparkling, high-energy game soundtracks of the era. So, for you, yes, there’s a bit-accurate emulation of the OPN2 YM2612 chip and SN76489-compatible square wave core (SPSG). There’s even a recreation of the crunchy lo-fi sample playback.
If you want to hear those vintage soundtracks the way they were intended to be heard, there’s even a VGM player. For Sega game fans, this is your new iTunes.
Whoa – if none of that meant anything to you, think of it this way: this is a 6-part polyphonic recreation of the 4-voice FM synth with a stupid amount of sound controls and grungy retro sample playback as a separate feature.
Listen to the new sounds you can get out of it:
But it doesn’t sample the Sega. It’s a loving recreation from the folks at Plogue, who have gotten deep into this sort of hardware recreation.
Standalone, VST2 (Mac, Windows), VST3 (Mac, Windows), Mac AU, AAX, all 64-bit. NKS support, which means it’s all playable directly from Maschine and Kontrol S- Series keyboards.
