alright, this was a kind of sporadic and kind of not quite scene-related project - a musicdisk for an ESFM - enhanced OPL3-compatible FM synthesizer from ESS AudioDrive/Solo-1 audio cards, made from songs done in Furnace Tracker (hence the release "label" :)

of course running this on real PC could be a bit troublesome since you need a ESS audio card (still easier to find than GUS :D),but in case of trouble, latest DOSBox-X supports ESFM emulation :)

youtube: party video with "shell to DOS" feature demo, post-party version with full track list

Nice tracks and cool looking interface!
Didn't know OPL can sound like this.

Interesting sound technology. Cool shell.
A DOS-stuff that I would have liked to see in my youth :)

Interesting niche-project that looks and (more importantly) sounds good! Might be that the fact it's coming outside demoscene the music sounds more interesting to me (different influences). Might be the sound chip too.

Excellent presentation and great tunes.
I'm not familiar with the ESS but the sound is amazing for just FM.

Thank you for this compilation, and for letting us know of the recent developments in ESFM reversing. Eagerly awaiting the next one! And if possible give OPL3 some love too! :D

AntDude: You can find the original module files in Furnace Tracker's example song collection (demos/esfm).
