OPLoid FM Synthesizer

US Sounds of the MS-DOS era      27/03/22

A new FM Synthesizer based on Yamaha's OPL2 and OPL3 chips is due for release this week. It adopts the synthesis principles of the Yamaha YM3812 and YMF262 FM chips which were widely used on IBM PC-based sound cards in the late 20th century - which  defined the sound of the MS-DOS era. Here's more:

The OPLoid closely mimics the OPL 2 and 3 in their principles of operation to stay true to the original chips' characteristic sound and to make it accessible in a modern music production environment. Nevertheless, some parameters have been slightly modified to allow for more flexibility in sound design. While the OPLoid might be useful for all genres of electronic music,

Features:

  • Close imitation of the 2-operator FM algorithm from the Yamaha OPL2 and OPL3 sound chips
  • 8 waveforms - monophonic and polyphonic mode - up to 64 voices of polyphony (depending on CPU power)
  • 4 LFOs (vibrato, tremolo, FM depth, panorama) - pitchbend and modwheel support (up to 6 parameters independently mappable to modwheel)
  • Over 100 factory presets - cloud patch database for sharing patches among users


It's suited to all sorts of music but especially for genres like Vaporwave spectrum, Dungeon Synth and Chiptune. The plugin is out on the 31st March 2022 for around 20 Euros - and can be purchased here then: https://leiseimkran.gumroad.com/
