HOOT VOICE RIPPER 8r4
Naruto's HOOT Voice Ripper which now include my AJ MOD with FMDrive support. Basically what it does is for those that use hoot to listen to FM chipmusic (awesome Japanese Sharp X68000 Music!), this tool basically has the ability to capture the current driver register map (via hotkey Ctrl+C while listening), and it will collect the current instrument operator data of that instance. You can export the captured voice data to several formats including the FMDrive raw data (.FMD) format
GENKMOD AJMOD Emulator
GenKMod is a popular open sourced emulator written by Kaneda (SpriteMinds Guru) based on Gen. My Mod consist of YM2612 and PSG Bug Fixes and Music debug layout change. Basically you can play your favorite game and watch the FM registers moving (great for learning) and also extract any voice setting into an FMDrive compatible preset format.
YM2612 Instrument Editor - Sega Genesis - Megadrive ROM
If you want to save your created sounds or use them into YM2612 emulators synths or trackers (FMDrive VST, Deflemask, VGMM), you can use an emulator like Regen or Gens to dump the channel as a .tfi file which can be loaded into capable VST or Trackers. SRAM support or Flashcard support could be added in the future to directly dump to SD card from the hardware. This brand new ROM was created and coded by Matt "MrD", creator of Gravity Beam: Master Gaiden SMS Homebrew game and enhanced by Aly James, creator of FMDrive 2612 Vsti & SPSg Vsti. YM2612 Instrument editor lets you control the Sega Genesis FM sound chip in real time, access the main parameters of the Channel 1 and select which note to play. If you want to save your created sounds or use them into YM2612 emulators synths or trackers (FMDrive VST, Deflemask, VGMM), you can use an emulator like Regen or Gens to dump the channel as a .tfi file which can be loaded into capable VST or Trackers.
It is also a useful tool for YM2612 musicians or Genesis developers to quickly test a sound directly on the hardware in a friendly way.
Even cooler, friends from MegacatStudios put this ROM into a collector Cartridge you can buy exclusively from their website.

FMDrive with Little Scale's GenMDM
Long story short this zip file contains all you need to know about FMDrive GenMDM support, GenMDM is a custom hardware designed by Sebastian Tomczak, aka Little Scale, that can convert MIDI data into YM2612 and PSG Data commands hence controlling the Sega in realtime, like an hardware synth. The problem is that GenMDM is closed source, apparently discontinued and not available anymore, so no bug fix?. However I will have a new working open source hardware solution soon.
Still, GenMDM was a genius idea and Little Scale got all my respect forever, this guy is creative.

VProm 2.0 Drum Rack for Ableton Live/Push by Kirkwood West
Kirkwood West made a great VProm drum rack for ableton live (9.+ and 10.+). This routes each channel to a seperate output in Ableton's drum rack. Essentially so it can be played from Push and each output can be processed individually in live's rack format.
