I have created a set of samples that have been recorded directly from a PAL Sega Master System II. I have created all of the sounds myself on the hardware (as in, these are not sounds or samples recorded from games or demo programs). The output from the sound chip has been recorded directly.
The samples cover a total of 11 archetypes for the pulse channels and 4 archetypes for the noise channels. Each pulse channel archetype covers all 83 pitches. Each noise archetype covers 8 notes with different noise profiles. This makes for a total of 945 samples.
These archetype are named as follows, with each individual sample having a three-digit number ID. The lower the number ID, the lower the pitch.
The pitched pulse channel samples range from a pitch of MIDI note number A2 (57) to MIDI note number G8 (127). Please be aware that tuning becomes less and less accurate as pitch increases. The four different noise archetypes have four different volume envelope types.
The uncompressed audio is presented as 16 bit, 44.1KHz mono .wav files. The compressed audio is presented as 96kbps, mono .mp3 files. The audio has been normalised and trimmed, but not compressed nor equalised in any fashion. Fade-ins and fade-outs have been added to each file.
