I converted Daytona USA from MultiPCM to OPL4:

Daytona USA (OPL4).zip

The Yamaha YMW258-F aka MultiPCM is the ancestor of the WAVE section of the Yamaha YMF278B OPL4, so there are a lot of similarities, but the conversion applies dynamic channel (re-)remapping to get the channel count down from 28 to 24.

The longer tracks need an OPL4 with 2 MB of sample memory, and sufficient system RAM as well.

And I also converted the other MultiPCM packs to OPL4:

MultiPCM to OPL4 conversions.zip

I haven’t tested these as thoroughly as Daytona, but in a superficial inspection they sound good. Additionally, I think most of these are a lot lighter on the sample memory than Daytona is, some Wing War tracks require 1 MB and for the rest 640 kB ought to be enough.

Missing are Virtua Fighter and Virtua Racer; those use two MultiPCM chips and that’s a bit too much for our good ol’ MoonSound (and also my converter doesn’t support it).

This sounds amazing. I think an MSX playing Daytona music in a meeting is sure to turn some heads. I wonder, would it be also possible to convert Sega OPM+PCM packs (like Out Run, Power Drift, Super Hang On, After Burner etc.) to OPM+OPL4?

Should be. Though for those I would ideally add support to VGMPlay directly. But that may take a while still, so short term an off-line conversion may be a faster way to be able to listen to them.

Thanks, Grauw. VGMPlay currently tops the ranking of my most used MSX software. I'm looking forward its future. Smile

vgmplay is an MSX program, so yeah. If you have the proper sound hardware on your MSX, you can play a lot of different VGM files on it.
