Atari ST chiptune plugin for VLC

October 13, 2015

update 2016-09-09: Link updated with fresh build.

A few weeks ago I spent some time with the excellent sc68 software written by Benjamin Gérard (Ben/Overlanders). It’s a suite of software that can faithfully reproduce the workings of the YM2149 sound chip in the Atari ST and convert/play songs made for it. Additionally, which was the reason I took a look at it, Ben had made a VLC compatible plugin.

Since the Mac sorely lacks a competent playlist capable Atari ST music player (XSC doesn’t do playlists, Audio Overload isn’t fully compatible) I was really interested to see if the *nix support in sc68 was enough for me to be able to compile a working plugin for OS X as well.

It was. Enjoy. (I am! Thanks Ben :))
