29 dollars? I have the original from Bruce Sutherland which is free. What differences are there between his version and yours?
I like this approach too -- $29 for couple fixes over freeware.
Oh yeah we're at the new low.
Shame on people buying it.

I wonder if the original coder gets anything out of this. If he does, I see no issue with this.

The original Bruce sutherland feedback operator was not correct , there was hardly any feedback going on (even when maxed out )
You couldn't turn a sine --> saw , seems that disco dsp has fixed this
I see. Didn't know that as i rarely use OPL.

I think it should remain free. My opinion ofc.

not only imo a very good alternative & free:

- maintained
- 32/64 bit builds for Windows and OSX
- OPL3 support
- multiple emulator cores
- Built with JUCE 5.4.7
- Notarized and code signed

This software package provides FM synthesizer plugins, based on OPL3 and OPN2 sound chip emulations.
  • control of multiple YMF262/YM2612 emulated chips
  • high fidelity emulation, with choice of compromise level (good fidelity/fast, excellent fidelity/slow)
  • synthesis of melodic and percussive instruments
  • extensible polyphony
  • bundled collection of instruments
  • support for dynamic parameterization and automation
  • rigorous implementation of the MIDI standard
  • multi-channel operation with General MIDI compatibility
  • ability to synthesize entire MIDI files out of the box

Well, just checked and no. ADLplug binaries aren't code signed or notarized unless I missed out something which will lead to issues with Catalina for sure. I studied contributing to the project but JUCEOPLVSTi got forked instead. ADLplug has no AudioUnits support and more cores is not necessarily better ;) Still, a handy one.

This project seems to go against the Spirit Github.com.
How can a respected developer hold their head up high and cash grab.

pull the source from git and compile it for yourself. voila. no cash changes hands.

Thanks for making a linux version, it seems to work perfect,

It helps if you realize what's actually being sold: not the code itself, but support and accountability. If you're a dev, it's not worth it; but if you're not, this route will save heaps of time and effort in learning (but there are lots of pointers to C++ tutorials all over, in easy arrays).
Joy and kindness are acts of resistance -- fight the power!
