YM2612 VST Release! (V 0.9)

Download: http://www.wonthelp.info/YM2612VST.zip (V 0.9)

What the hell is it?

This is a VST that uses code which emulates the sound chip found inside of the Sega Genesis/Megadrive systems. It’s the closest you can get to the real thing currently without actually circuit bending a Genesis. If you don’t know/care what a Genesis is, this VST is basically a 4 operator FM synth.

What can I do with it?

You can load it up in any music editor that supports VST instrument plugins, and use it to compose chip tunes, create FM sound effects, etc. If you want to do old school arcade style chip tunes this is your plugin right here.


– Full control over almost every aspect of an emulated YM2612

– Midi automation support, right-click any control and select “Midi Learn” to make it listen for a midi signal to latch on to

– A large collection of presets I’ve snaked from various Genesis games

– Both Plus GX and Gens sound cores are implemented, you can switch back and forth between whichever suits you

– Early support allowing 6 instruments through one VST, allowing you to limit yourself to one chip for authenticity

– Channel 3 special button for creating sound effects like beefy FM explosions and what not (Disable all channels but channel 3 when this is on)

    Wow ! Look’s very good (drums and synth sound’s exactly the same than Sega Genesis sounds)
    I say “it look” cos it doesn’t work on my computers (i’ve try on 3 differents PC on FL9 and the error message say something like “miss the MSVCR100.DLL file”)
    I have VOPM that i use a LOT for my projects and i really want to test your VST to improve my tracks 🙂

    BTW awesome work ! Keep going like that !

    Thanks man! Sorry to hear you’re having trouble with it, I’ve heard this from at least a few other people as well. I’ll be getting to the bottom of it and releasing a newer stable-er build as soon as I can.

    Great thanks for this! Sounds good and looks fine. Importing y12 dump files would also be awesome 🙂

    Hello, awesome sounding plugin. The only problem I have is the very small GUI, I have great difficulty making out the text and numbers.

    Thanks anyways.
