There were many things not found in Google search, including the official site of "TurboSound".
In the future, wiki will be expanded, and 'the type of expansion bus' supported by the sound card (or the model of compatible Spectrum compatible machine), 'the IO address' where the sound chip is decoded, 'the presence or absence of ROM', etc. I want to share information.
- "TurboSound" sound chip: AY-3-8910/12 or YM2149"General sound"
I have seen a demo of "ZX version" on YouTube for several years, but I can not confirm whether it is on sale."MoonSound" sound chip: YMF278B (or 295)
The original is MSX hardware "MOONSOUND" ("Wozblaster" etc.). The "OPL4" sound chip is equipped with an FM sound equivalent to "OPL3" and a 24 voice wavetable sound generator. A wavetable sound equivalent to General MIDI can be played by the "YRW801 2MB ROM" chip mounted on the board, and an SRAM for user tones is also mounted on the board.

I found the site of the person who made the hardware of "ZX Bus/Nemo Bus" version.
- "I thought, why not try to adapt it to our native ZX Spectrum."

The article was divided into three posts because there is a limitation of "10 URLs in one post".
All I wanted to say was the first paragraph.
