Description

What is PicoGUS?

PicoGUS can emulate Gravis UltraSound, Sound Blaster, AdLib (OPL2), CMS/Game Blaster and Tandy 3-Voice, and supports MIDI output with MPU-401 intelligent mode emulation. You can also plug in a USB gamepad (Xbox 360 & DualShock 4 currently supported) and play DOS games with a modern controller!

This version of PicoGUS does not need a Raspberry Pi Pico as the RP2040 microcontroller is embedded right on the board! You can plug the card in and use it right away as it comes programmed with the GUS firmware!

Please see the PicoGUS GitHub project and compatibility list for more information on PicoGUS and what computer systems, games, and demoscene productions it is compatible with.
