Can the Power Base Converter be modded for FM sound?

Recommended Posts

I know that there are some Master System games that take advantage of the FM sound chip, if it's installed. Can you install this chip in the Power Base Converter, or does it already have the chip?

I would assume not for two reasons, first I have never heard of anyone doing that but more importantly the Power Base Converter is not much more than a pass through device so the SMS carts can utilize the already compatible Genesis hardware. Now I am no pro or modder so if anyone can dis-prove my thoughts I've no doubt they will chime in.

I have seen FM addon board (http://etim.net.au/smsfm/smsfm.html not mysite) that plugs into the rear SMS expansion port, the one that never got used officially. Since the rear port connects 49 of the same 50 pins (one pin is enable that SMS console uses to control card, cart, and Expansion device separately) and theoretically it should be possible to add one inline. A quick glance of the posted schematic doesn't show any problem save for just one wire.
