OPL (YM3526) Programming Information
The only device that I've heard of that uses this chip is the Commodore C64/C128 Sound Expander cartridge; there might be some arcade games/machine that use it too.
If I get motivated, I might have some audio samples of what the YM3526 sounds like. I actually don't own one, so I'm just going to setup my YM3812 to YM3526 mode and toy around.
Since the YM3812 is 100% backwards compatible with the YM3526, Jeffrey Lee's YM3812 documentation should be adequate for a YM3526 programming reference. Just remember to set bit 5 off on the YM3812! ;-)
If you have a few short audio samples to contribute
or any additional information, please let me know.
