Why is this showing up again?
Multiple entries are showing up this year which do use it. It has been updated over the course of the year with some small changes, mostly to enable a greater number of sounds to be played back (for vbt) and to decrease the quality floor for compressed audio (both vbt and XL2 requested this). There have been other bug fixes as well, such as in the streaming library and in the driver itself. One thing that definitely took some effort was improving the synchronization code for ADX audio so that all bitrates both worked and worked for longer.
But mostly, that token to show that I'm still active on Saturn.
What even is it?
This is driver software for the SEGA Saturn to be implemented in games who want to use the M68K to control the SCSP for the playback of CD-DA, ADX, and uncompressed PCM audio.
Last year, it was posited that this could be submitted into the "Utilities" category. I am unsure, since this is not a tool in and of itself, it's just bits of code that other developers often really like using in their games.
