Actually, Yamaha made reference driver for PC for YMF278B and as result of that it was put on a lot of high-end sound cards of that time like Audiotrix Pro card. So, I meant demo MIDI files that come with that particular sound card. I am new to VGM and YMF278B emulation, but in the last days I educated myself and I believe I understand what is the missing link:

MIDI file --A--> MIDI player --B--> OS/Driver/MCU, etc --C--> YMF278B

basically it seems VGM is the data-dump done on point C, i.e. raw commands send to the YMF278B.

Yes, the VGM is all data dumped at point C.
Creating VGMs of those demo MIDI might be difficult though due to there being no PC emulators that support OPL4 cards AFAIK. (Maybe there is some DOSBox fork that does it?)

Anyway, if you should get anywhere with your YMF278B research, be sure to make a topic in the "Non-VGM Technical Discussion" forum. Also feel free to post links to the driver archives / demo MIDIs there.
