MSX and OSX

So as I mentioned earlier I was not really using Windows system for a while now. But recently I came to search for a decent MSX emulator on OSX – which was a bit harder than I thought.

kvalley2Then I stumbled upon CocoaMSX which is an emulator matching up to Window’s BlueMSX in terms of user-friendly emulation. It’s pretty decent! A bit of a shame that after switching into the full-screen modus it presented that OSX-patterned background, preventing me from going back to ye olde gaming days but hey… CocoaMSX is as of now my absolute favourite OSX MSX emulator!

Native Instruments FM8

fm8I’m always impressed with the Native Instrument software synths. The first FM synth (FM7 is reviewed here) was already great, designed like the DX7, able to load presets and extended with filters and effects.

Anyway, the FM8 has dropped the Yamaha’s DX-series feel and has become an unique next-level FM-synth at itself. Check it out here:

The price, well about $250,- you could buy a few genuine CX5M’s for that, you decide 😉
