Will the ST timer effects work if the AY8930 is on a cartridge?

stefan - those are really good recordings.

it seems clear that the AY is too much de-muffled compared to the YM by completely removing this capacitor. i think its pretty important to get as close as to the same as the stock sound for composing reasons.

lars - what do you think about my idea to make the AY on a separate expansion cartridge?

Also i have not modified the volume in those recordings, this is exactly how differnt they sound to each other.

Two recordings by me. One origianl YM setup and the other AY8930 without the cap. (40 mb, FLAC)

Another hint for the AY/YM comparison:
Set the YM MP3 recording to +100% (i.e. in iTunes) - then the experience of the recordings (AY unmuffled, YM original) is quite the same!

About the volume of the recordings... i think Lars has amplified them until they reach their clipping point and as the (unmuffled) AY recording has less bass than the YM then it was possible to amplify it a lot more.
I agree that the modded AY sound a bit too bright as it is now, what about putting a lower value cap there instead of removing it?

i mean of course modded AY sounds a bit brighter than default YM

if anything the capacitor removed version is a bit brighter. the difference between the muffled and unmuffled versions in massive.

is it c10 or c8 on these schematics?

i guess c10? maybe a bit of experimentation might be nice to find a better match

what is the real difference in volume between YM and AY, in these clips the AY one is alot louder, making comparison harder.
