Dear Friends and Customers,

The VGMPlayer could play IMF Music files.

I'm working to support IMF music files on the VGMPlayer.

It's almost done and playing IMF songs now.

Please download the VGM Player again and You can have an updated version.
(You can find the location my email, I sent the information when you purchase the card)

 

 

What is IMF file and useful tools...

https://k1n9duk3.shikadi.net/imftools.html

 

IMF Tools - K1n9_Duk3 Reloaded

What is "IMF"? IMF stands for Id Software Music Format. The format was invented by Id Software in 1991 for Commander Keen 4-6 and was used in the later games Catacomb 3-D, Wolfenstein 3-D and Spear of Destiny. The same format was also used in some games by

k1n9duk3.shikadi.net

 

SD Music Deluxe card has an OPL3 sound chip and the IMF files are also possible to play on APPLE II.

Hence, I researched the IMF file type and could make it run on SD Music Deluxe.

I searched for some good file formats that could work on APPLE II without any heavy CPU load.

In my thought the Music playing in APPLE II wouldn't be a problem but, when I apply the VGM songs in APPLE II,

It won't fit for games on APPLE II. so other file types are needed.

I can make my own format but, it isn't a good idea cause I can't make good songs...

So need another format it could be made by some of the composers and if possible to convert to a specified music format, it would be a nice.

I considered it an easy one and I found DRO and IMF files. Some of the files are based on MIDI format and have instrument data in to and need more consideration for APPLE II.

 

DRO vs IMF...

DRO file can extract DOSBOX program and good for OPL2/OPL3 

IMF file can extract some DOS games and only for OPL2(OPL3 can)

And IMF file was simper to DRO and I did for it.

VGM Player would be a good player for VGM and IMF music files.

 

Background MUSIC(Sound) player on APPLE II

There are Mockingboard programs that can play in the background.

I also considering making a similar program that plays IMF sound files.

it would be helpful for the user's program.

Users could insert their own sound effects while background music playing.

Hope to complete it soon.

 

Thanks

Ian Kim

 

 

** VGM Player updated to V1.24

In this version, It supports large IMF files and has no file size limitation.

And hidden reading applied so you can play IMF songs seamlessly.

Enjoy more OPL2 music on SD Music Deluxe card.

 

Thank you

Ian

Dear customers and friends,

I'm glad to announce this good for all of SD Music card buyers.
New firmware for SD Music (plus) card was finished.

 

https://youtu.be/TmVWjNK-isw


What was changed?

1) New firmware support much better for Mockingboard emulation. now it supports all channels envelope 

I spent many days and nights to make a good mockingbird emulation.

*Chorus channels are removed and it assigned to more noise channels. now it has 3 noise channels.

 

2) User firmware update support
The previous version doesn't have this capability but from now it supports end-user updates. hence end-user could update when new firmware announce.

3) VGMPlayer support

But unfortunately, I need your card, hence SD Music card owner needs to ship it for firmware updates.
After that, End-user firmware updates are activated.
Please email me (quick09 (a) gmail . com)

 

But,  worldwide covid19 is a big issue hence,  you may not easy to ship it to me and also my side having difficulty returning it to you.  please wait for good days for us.


if you have any concerns, please let me know.
Thanks

Hi customers and friends,

 

I'm glad to notice that I've made a VGM Player for SD MUSIC card.

Here is the sample play on SD Music card.

https://youtu.be/s-QGBZC4Sbo

Recorded songs are mostly Korean songs.

All VGM files extracted(Not by me) from Family Karaoke on Famicom system.

 

This VGM player used a bare control mode on SD Music card on new firmware V2.0.

It has 32KB file limit so need to manual load for next data hence, I'm considering using AUX memory or file reading way(It may have a delay while file reading).

Anyway, we have another program to play music on SD Music card.

 

Thanks a lot

Ian Kim

Dear customers and friends,

 

I'm glad to announce for new firmware upgraded to Version 2.0.

In this version, I've applied all of Envelope functions and now it works very nice.

And on the Instruments Key On timing was improved a lot so, it could play much better.

Please have time to listen to it.

 

 

This song recorded from (Not so) Cheap Tunes I

and all instruments are default(Reed instruments).

(Recording was good so some parts had a clipping, it is not sound card issue but my PC )

https://youtu.be/4IKtQfxtfcg

Here is another song from Ultima IV

All instrument selected (Keyboard type Instruments)

(Recording was good so some parts had a clipping it is not sound card issue but my PC)

 

https://youtu.be/Rz3MPOaVjJg

 

I'm doing to make a user firmware updates utility and Instrument changing utility on APPLE ][.

After finishing it, I will announce it.

 

Thanks for your waiting and Keep good your health.

Regards;

Ian Kim

Dear Customers,

 

SD Music+ having some noise and here is a way to reduce noise.

The noise is coming from power source and YM2413.

This is a type of filter on output and input.

Please refer to the photo and apply two components.

One is 10K Ohms resistor and the other is a 0.022uF(223) capacitor.

(Similar value capacitor and resistor also work for this purpose)

It would help to reduce noise on sound.

Thanks a lot.

◆ SD Music card / 2017. 11. 29. 23:52

Hi, Friends,


If you don't know what is the SD Music card, 

Please watch this video and compare Mockingboard with this FM sound quality.


Another version of SD Music card is testing now.


From this version, It works perfect with APPLE ][+.

Previous version had some timing issue on APPLE ][+ so, some APPLE ][+ clone works so, I recommended APPLE //e.

APPLE ][+ and APPLE //e doesn't have same on expansion slot.

To discover it, I used a CPLD and now works perfect APPLE ][+ and //e. ( IIgs technical issue is the same as mocking board) 

This new version have same sound character but, it has nice function.

I will introduce it again.

Please wait for the SD Music card again and enjoy nice music programing even on APPLE ][+.


Thank you.

Ian Kim

Dear friends,


I developed the SD Music card to enhance old mockingboard of APPLE II.

In fact, I love this approach and sound quality.

In that version,

I replaced all electrolytic capacitors to tantalum capacitors for better sound quality and life.

And used RC filter on output AMP and some more improved.


But, It has compatibility issue following part's LOT#. It means that some chips works on some model with some software running.

In fact, After made this board, I've tested it on my APPLE //e and ][+ with SKYFOX and Ultima 4,5 before to ship. All fine then I sent it.

It works fine on APPLE //e even IIGS with Mockingboard patch.

But, I found it didn't work some software and some of APPLE ][+ model.


I really having hard time to find this cause...

It is happen because of the 6522 timing doesn't match well on APPLE II with 6502 CPU.

With some more research, I could find good way to overcome this issue and quickly applied on new PCB for SD Music card.

Sample card ordered and waiting for this.

On the CPLD testing, It works perfect on my APPLE //e and ][+ with all softwares.

and will test some of APPLE ][+ clones..

Please wait for some weeks for new board.

I will post when I have new board with testing results.


** NOTICE **

If you are not happy with your old version of SD Music card due to compatible issue, I will replace your card to new one. 

Please ask me the address and send your card with sure way.

When I received it, I will send new board for you. 


* I will test all arrived board, 

it if it failed to work with some another reason, It will be charged some costs,

Good working conditioned board will be replaced without return shipping charge.


Thank you very much;

Ian Kim

Hi friends,


Today, I've tested Mockingboard 4c(socket type) on APPLE //e.

To do it, I removed 65C02 CPU and pull flat cable to the Mockingboard 4c.

It was little complicated and I had to use Proto type not selling one.

Anyway, I could hear sound of mockingboard as it is on Slot#4.


This purpose is for the testing for APPLE //c plus and Laser128 system which couldn't have Mockingboard on Slot#4.

Those type of APPLE II can't use Mockingboard 4c but some of fans, wants to use it on their //c plus and Laser128.

Due to some of internal structure are not the same as APPLE //c, I couldn't say would work on there.

and I have to test it on //c and Laser128.

Now, I'm sure my design worked on just APPLE //e. :)

Dear all,


Thanks for purchasing the SD Music card.

Due to the good approach for new Yamaha sound chip,

I made plan to enhance the SD Music card for better capability.


Now, I'm testing new SD Music card (Maybe Deluxe version).


It have a YMF262 OPL3 chip for sound generation.

It have good capabilities for Music and can have much more Music instruments.

It is generating Stereo sound with clean sound.


This YMF262 was used for some version of Sound Blaster for IBM PC.







YMF262 have below capabilities,


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamaha_YMF262

  • 18 2-operator channels
  • 15 2-operator channels + 5 drum channels (drum setting on)
  • 6 2-operator channels + 6 4-operator channels (4-op setting on)
  • 3 2-operator channels + 6 4-operator channels + 5 drum channels (both settings on)


It have maximum 18 channels, hence, it could more than Mocking board channels so, I want use the rest channels for music, and now looking for schematic of Phasor, I need IO address information how does it connected or control by APPLE II.

If some one know about the IO map or related information, Please let me know.


Anyway, I'm trying to understand all parts of YMF262 for similar emulation for mocking board and Phasor compatible card.


Keep watch it. ^^;

Thank you

Ian Kim

I built mocking board compatible sound card for APPLE IIc.

As we know, the APPLE IIc doesn't have any slot and can't use any peripherals.

Unlike APPLE ][, ][+, //e or IIgs.

Due to this big handicaps, Many of fans not like to play with APPLE IIc.

But, now, we can have good sound on our APPLE IIc.

It have a mocking board (Sound card) in it.

Who likes to play APPLE IIc? not only me but, may be you too.


On the video, I used the Smart Drive for APPLE IIc. it will power ON boot by Ultima5.

You also can see it supports internal INUSE light.


Have time to watch this link.

https://youtu.be/AO4v-F516tI


Due to APPLE IIc doesn't have slot.

I made all of required signal from CPU socket and some of tricks to make vacant for mocking board slot.

It works but there was a conflict between Mouse firmware and Mocking board.

It designed it to avoid the conflict and then finally working as expected.

I will integrate a AMP chip for speaker driving and Sound pins for external speaker.

I'm designing PCB for it and other components will be prepared soon.


You can have mocking board on your APPLE IIc and can enjoy games with Mocking board support.

It would be a lovely and compact, portable vintage APPLE IIc for you.

Please wait for this new sound card to be completed for sale.


Thanks and Regards;

Ian Kim
