YM2149 Synth

Regular price $60.00

The last batch of YM2149 chips I ordered are 100% fake. The YM2149 variant is out of stock until I can get more, but the AY-3-8910 is in stock and ready to ship!

It’s a tiny little chip synth! The YM2149 is a neat little chip that was used in various retro arcade machines and consoles, including the Atari ST. It features three adjustable voices. They are mapped to MIDI channels 1-3.

V2 is finally here! Improvements over V1 include:

  • TRS MIDI (Type A) input, adapter sold separately
  • Balanced audio output (66/33, 33/66, and 50/50 L/R on the three output channels)
  • Option of AY-3-8910 instead of YM2149

This synth is wrapped in clear heat shrink tubing for protection and durability.

A Max for Ableton Live plugin is now available! Check it out: http://www.maxforlive.com/library/device/4520/ym2149-synth
