DefleMask 3.5 Released!

The 3.5 version is released, this is the major change since DefleMask was released. DefleMask has passed from supporting only a Mobile FM soundchips to support 3 Systems at the same time. The good thing about this is that DefleMask was re-coded to manage a “plugin-system-like” soundchip addon. So the plan is to add more soundchips support and new systems.

So far, DefleMask supports this soundchips:

  • YAMAHA YMU759 FM Soundchip
  • YAMAHA YM2612 FM Soundchip
  • Texas Instruments SN76489 PSG Soundchip

And with this soundchips, DefleMask is capable to make music (on VGM and MMF format) for the next systems:

  • SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive
  • SEGA Master System


  • 01: Add multi-system support.
  • 02: Add YAMAHA YM2612 support.
  • 03: Add Texas Instruments SN76489 support.
  • 04: Add SEGA Genesis support.
  • 05: Add SEGA Master System support.
  • 06: Add a keyboard shortcut for Interpolate values.
  • 07: Add retrigger command.
  • 08: Add Instrument List and Instrument Column.
  • 09: Add effect for controlling SN76489 Noise Mode.
  • 10: Add VGI and Y12 importer on YM2612 Instrument Editor.
  • 11: Make max_fps value selectable under config.ini.
  • 12: Change the presets format for a better one.

Deflemask Tracker adds Genesis support

It was about time we get an alternative for Megadrive/Genesis musicmaking :D

New kid on the block Delek has been, for some time now, working on adding YM2612 and SN76489 PSG support to his tracker Deflemask, which before supported only the Y759 FM chip (found in many cellphones). The efforts of this young chipmusic enthusiast are coming to fruition very soon.

This is a cool new alternative for Sega Genesis tracking, since Delek is a very dedicated kid who is listening a lot to people input about his tracker,something all of us interested in Sega Genesis music making will appreciate I bet. Work is also being done about “exporting to real hardware” aspects of this whole deal, usually the hardest part.

You can be happy about something else too: your feature suggestions and bug reports will not be greeted anymore with a disgruntled answer ;)

Release will be online soon, so I tease you with a screenshot only for now.
Here’s a video of Deflemask in action though, in its previous version (Y759 soundchip)
