Kotaku have discovered SCMD, the MML utility that allows you to simultaniously use PSG, MSX-MUSIC, dual SCC and MSX-Audio - and boy are they impressed.

In an article titled MSX turboR is still a worthy synthesizer Kotaku writes about chiptune music not being about NES and Gameboy alone, and praises the quality of sounds this unique mix of MSX sound chipsets can produce. The article is accompanied by no less than 6 SCMD songs that can be found on Nico Nico Douga - all are well worth listening to.

But who/what is Oktaku? (The web site didn't help, as it's in Japanese.)

Is it possible that SCCPCM wants to say original SCC Snatcher cartridge? Do you know if works with SCC+ of megaflashrom or Playsoniq?

SCMD only work with original (SD)Snatcher Cartridge i think because it needs real RAM, not Flash.

Time ago I tested with an original cartridge of my brother but works only with Snatcher cartridge not SD Snatcher. I think you needed in early version 2 original Snatchers.
