Sound Hardware

  • YM2151 @ 4MHz
  • OKIM6258 @4MHz/8MHz (software selectable)
  • Optional hardware: Mercury Unit

The OKIM6258 runs at a software selectable 4MHz or 8MHz. The clock can be divided by 512, 768 or 1024, so the resulting sampling rates are:

clock divisor sample rate (Hz)
4MHz 512 7812
768 5208
1024 3096
8MHz 512 15625
768 10516
1024 7812

Which gives us 5 unique sampling rates (since 4M/512 = 8M/1024 = 7812).
