No at all. The SEGA/MEGA-CD have 2 extra signals on two pins of the connector (They are not conected on the original Genesis, just have the pin, buty unused) that are used to "listen" the audio output from the console and then mix that audio with the PCM and CD-DA audio for the stereo RCA jacks on the SEGA-CD. If your Genesis is a original model 1 console, you need the mixing cable to get the Genesis audio (PSG+OPN2+OPN2 PCM) on the SEGA-CD audio out.
People with Genesis 2 don't need it at all ...
Even if the SEGA-CD is the old version 1 (that combo is ugly btw, but works fine...)
