It is a USB device that can hold soundchip boards like OPL3 and YM2151, but the most interesting is the YM2608 board ( also know as OPNA) as it is software compatible with YM2149. I don't know how difficult it is to add GIMIC support to Steem but if you find it interesting then please do a try even if you don't have the device, i can test for you
There is a Dosbox build that support GIMIC with OPL3 sound board, maybe it helps to look at the source to understand more quickly if it is possible add GIMIC to Steem, but with the OPNA module then of course.
Dosbox for GIMIC source:
It requires a control.. thing..? also... called (C86CTL.DLL) i don't know much as all info is in japanese, but it is a DLL you put in the same dir with the program you gonna use with GIMIC.
And it's source:
You should have opened a thread for that dude, it must be examined long term, documentation isn't obvious.
Maybe it's doable. Did you notice the project to add the PSG chip? Maybe we should wait for that.
And if you know some C, you could help getting it started (init etc.).
