MESS VGMmod can rip AY-3-8910 and YM-2149 chip music.
But for these chips exists the *.YM widespread used on Atari ST, CPC and Spectrum computers emulators.
I would make VGM from thousands YM files on the Net.
You think is easy an util YM2VGM?

That should be as easy as the S98 to VGM converter, tails_ wrote this week.
But I don't think it makes sense to convert existing YM packs to VGM.

OK, after brief looking at format i can say it's possible to convert most of game music. Yet there are digidrums which are recorded in YMs as 8bit samples and various kinds of effects which i don't know how work making them unconvertable to VGM format :Y

Great!! thanks for your work, time and care.

Maybe mr.Bulba's AY Emulator could support in a future the "super" VGM file too.

My concern about that is intersystem compatibility. I think VGM is the biggest event in chiptune emulation.
Atari ST, Amstrad/Schneider CPC and Spectrum AY-YM people has very good work done during years that maybe would be archived in VGM files too.

VGM could agglutinate almost all Video Game Music. :wink:

I doubt that. Bulba was working on spectrum tracker music player (so sad there's no winamp plugin which could do that) and added support for YM only later. So he's focusing on AY\YM music only.
