YM2149 Sound Card

What an ingenious "tool". I haven't heard these synthetic tones for ages. It sounds like Flynn's arcade, although there was no "music" played. But it feels like that!

The soundcard is delivered without the soundchip (YM2149 / AY-3-8910) but it was no problem for me to get some real old chips from eBay Germany (7 EUR per piece). From the looks I wouldn't have thought that they would still work, but they do very well.
