|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.|

|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.
