RYM2612 FM Soundchip Emulation

Developer: Mathieu Demange

RYM2612 FM Soundchip EmulationPropellerhead has announced the release of RYM2612 Iconic FM Synthesizer, an FM soundchip emulation by Mathieu Demange.

RYM2612 Iconic FM Synthesizer is an emulation of the Yamaha YM2612 soundchip, best known for being the vibrant voice of the Sega Genesis/Megadrive videogame console.

Not many people were aware of this, but unlike other videogame consoles, the Sega Genesis/Megadrive had a complete FM synth onboard. A synth that provided enough features to produce complex, evolving tones, as well as crazy sound effects and PCM samples playback.

This is your chance to get your hands on this altered beast, combined with the rich control and modulation possibilities offered by Reason.

Feel the FM vibe for your retro and modern needs, with a lively and authentic tone, taking the RYM2612 Iconic FM Synthesizer as a bonus weapon in your synth arsenal.



  • Cycle-accurate emulation of the YM2612 FM soundchip
  • Genuinely reproduces the unique and characteristic sound of its hardware counterpart (digital saturation, huge feedback amount, natural distortion, …)
  • Audio input for adding 8bit PCM sweetness to any signal
  • Low CPU usage, use plenty of instances!
  • Switchable output filtering and ladder effect
  • A couple of limitations from the soundchip have been taken away : up to 16 voices of polyphony, dedicated PCM channel (you can of course stick to 6 simultaneous voices if you want to experience the real thing).


€39 – special introductory sale until October, 26th
