Forked from MAME
This WIP project builds on hardware synthesizer emulations available in MAME. AMAME fork provides a custom osd to run the synth emulations as VST2 plugins, with an embedded webview to host the GUIs. Custom front panels are implemented using web technologies. AMAME also provides a tiny frontend to enable device hot swapping, sysex import and export, and virtual midi keyboard.
The plugins are quite CPU intensive because the emulations strive towards sample accurate preservations of their hardware counterparts. Full polyphony takes 30-40% of single CPU core, but the synths sound great. The emulations require original ROM images from the synths. This project will not provide ROMs.
Currently emulated devices are:
