I’ve recently found that video by Jez Harrison who is using my project to play some AY/YM music:
I’m really amazed to see that this project I’ve done one day out of the blue because I was bored and wanted to play with my Arduino and a YM2149/AY-3-8910 I had in hand seeing if I can make it to play a couple of notes.
Since I published that blog entry, for some unknown reason to me, it became really popular, lots of search request bring people to my blog, I don’t know why, but appreciate it. I’ve seen also lots of videos on youtube that seems to use my project even if not credited. I don’t mind, but it is always nice to be credited! After all that was a quick project done on the corner of a table (literally)
The story didn’t ended there, some time after that release, I started to work on an extension of my project that led to that mysterious entry I made: (Gaugie-Gauges)
Unfortunately an accident happened on that same day, where my laptop met some nice and lovely coffee, and postponed a lot of different things, including that project, which has been on hold since.
If there is demand, I would be happy to resume working on that project and why not making a proper shield to house one or two AY/YM chip with extending headers to plug another board like the Gameduino 2 or 3 on top and make a fully autonomous YM player from all of that! Please add a comment or go to the (new) forum to say if you would like such a project 🙂
And for posterity here are more videos that are explicitly using my code, or I do highly suspect they are using it:
