Its first pin is ground, second is VCC and the third is the melody output.
The UM348x family of sound generating devices is currently unemulated mainly due to a lack of understanding of the chip internal rom structure and data.The sound of these devices should be familiar to many of you as they have been broadly used in many 80s and 90s low end gadgets, doorbells, etc.Bootleg arcade games have used these chips as a way to integrate music at a minimum cost.Each chip contains a fixed number of melodies hardcoded in the silicon during manufacturing.Sean Riddle and Claw Grip have made extensive efforts to document these devices, full decap images, sound recordings, and main mask rom dump available for UM3481A and UM3482A here: The following notes taken during my analysis of the mask ROM array structure: The resulting data consist of 8 banks of 7 bit words containing the melody information.Active since 1968 with varying formations - Two major hiatus between 1981-19-2008YES formed in London (UK) in 1968 with Jon ANDERSON (vocals), Chris SQUIRE (bass, vocals), Peter BANKS (guitar, vocals), Tony KAYE (keyboards), and Bill BRUFORD (drums).Well-known and influential mainstream progressive from the 1970's, and still around in some form ever since, they were highly influential in their heyday, especially notable for the really creative "Relayer", which included at the time Swiss keyboardist Patrick MORAZ who replaced Rick WAKEMAN During the 1970s, YES pioneered the use of synthesizers and sound effects in modern music.Driven by Jon's artistic vision, they produced such timeless, symphonic-rock masterworks as "Roundabout," "Close To the Edge," and "Awaken".
