    "Ewww the MegaDrive sounded like crap".

    In the wrong hands, yes. But watch what happens when someone who knows synths back to front has a go.

    yes Joe Redifer of Game Sack kindly pointed out why the Megadrive copped a lot of flack for sound in this video.

    More on the MegaDrive audio from one of my favourite channels. First video lists some of the "soundtrack engines" used, and from there you can spot patterns to identify them.

    All audio captured from a real Gen 1 Japanese MD. (Although it should be noted that, right now, MiSTer is *really* close to this, as measured by the MDFourier audio analysis tool).

    High quality (up to 96KHz lossless) captures of audio from retro bit consoles and computers. Lots of Amiga and MegaDrive stuff there, but other consoles and systems too.
