Sonicware introduces Liven Mega Synthesis Retro Game Music Composer

Sonicware has introduced a new instrument in its Liven line, the Mega Synthesis Retro Game Music Composer.

The Mega Synthesis is designed to be an all-in-one chiptune system, inspired by the Sega Mega Drive from the 1988, aka the Sega Genesis. Sonicware says that it has “faithfully recreated the 4-operator FM sound module, the 8-bit PCM sound module, and the “SN76489″ PSG (Programmable Sound Generator) sound module used by the original console.”

  • 8-bit PCM sampler x 1 track (3 voices)
  • 320 FM game sounds
