Genesis 35:1-15: Revive Us Again
RYMCast is a VGM player for Sega Genesis/Megadrive videogame music files. Based on our work for the RYM2612 Iconic FM Synthesizer, RYMCast is a highly accurate and genuinely sounding cross platform VGM player. It’s our humble contribution to the Sega Genesis/Megadrive community.
What’s new in version 1.0.6
Please have a look at the CHANGELOG.
RYMCast was inspired by the venerable 16-bit Audiophile Project which we want to thank a lot for the initiative and the quality of their recordings. We often used them as reference audio material to fine tune even the smallest parameters of our rendering engine.
And if you’re seeking for Genesis VGM files on the web, chances are you’ll land on Project2612 which we humbly think should be considered public utility! Thanks to them and the wonderful community of contributors.
Start playing a VGM file. Optionally solo the desired channel (that’s easier to locate the instrument you want to export). Then pause the player. You’re given the choice between two patch formats. When still paused, perform the actual drag’n’drop from any channel’s scope to your desired location (desktop, explorer/finder window, Reason rack)
PCM samples use the channel 6’s DAC feature to playback, which completely override the standard FM output on that channel. While the drag’n’drop patch export feature will work “as excepted”, if your VGM song use PCM samples, you’ll probably end up with useless FM patches. PCM samples export feature is likely to be implemented in a near future, though.
