Re: Official FamiStudio Sound Engine

So the basic 20A3 need in memory is like 150 bytes? Other parts are added if the songs uses some specific features? how does it work? Does it include part for sfx too? Hi. I'm not sure where you got the 150 from? Looking at the tables, if you use the minimal feature set, I read 129 bytes (that incl...

Thanks for the support. Send any feedback (either about the app or the sound engine itself) my way!

Official FamiStudio Sound Engine

Hello! I usually stick to the music forum for my announcements, but this is something NES devs in general might be interested in : an official FamiStudio sound engine. If you have been living under a rock, FamiStudio is a DAW-style NES music editor, it has tons of features: Modern DAW-style UI with ...

Re: Famitracker, spike in performance on a specific frame change

Good to hear. Does it warn you if you uses options not supported by the driver? The FamiStudio sound engine supports 100% of the feature FamiStudio supports. The driver evolved with the app over the last year. I always needed it for the NSF and ROM export anyway. But your question might mean someth...

Re: Famitracker, spike in performance on a specific frame change

Yes. The FamiStudio sound endine is a FamiTone2 derivative, so it will use the exact same SFX architecture as the original one (I did a lot of work on the music part, nothing on the SFX part). You can play SFX for all 4 main channels, and have up to 4 streams (more streams = more RAM needed). Mixing...

Re: Famitracker, spike in performance on a specific frame change

Still, there is not many sound driver just: - famitracker/famitone sfx - famitone - pently - gsound - Bleubleu one, soon I guess? (sfx possible?) - ? (maybe a few that I forget?) That's also pretty much all the ones i know of too. The wiki mentions the one Brad did for Lizard and another one called...

Re: ASM6 macro with indexer

Thanks man. That was also my conclusion :(

In the end, I reworked my code to avoid having an indexer as a macro parameter and its probably for the best.

ASM6 macro with indexer

Hi! I'm cleaning up the FamiStudio sound engine and porting it to NESASM + ASM6. Like most of us, I tend to abuse CA65 macros and there is one thing i have not been able to do in ASM6 : have an optional indexer passed as a parameter. .macro test offset, indexer lda var + offset indexer .endmacro Whi...

Re: Famicom : Wavy artefacts on top of screen?

Ok thanks guys. That already gives me a couple of hints on what to check. Ill run some more test to see a pattern where this happens where there top is mostly black. I'll also try to double check the voltages, i am running off a 9V ac adapter (as opposed to 10V that it should be) although everything...

Famicom : Wavy artefacts on top of screen?

Hi! I recently got myself a FDS RAM adapter + FDS stick. Everything works great except a few rare games where a certain fraction of the top of the screen is wavy or misaligned. For example, here in the FDS version of Zelda, up to about 1/3 of the screen is misaligned. Some screens of the zelda map a...

Re: I accidentally discovered what Double Dribble was probably intended to sound like.

This is super exciting to me. Cant believe we discover that kind of stuff after 30+ years!

Already added to FamiStudio 2.2.0! :mrgreen:

Re: Famitracker QT text export?

Hi! I'm no FamiTracker expert, but since no-one has replied let me try to help. The text exporter itself seem to be in 1 cpp + 1 header, the coupling with the rest of the app seem very small. Basically hooked up to the menu of the main window (which might be different in Qt than in MFC). The only is...

Re: FamiStudio NES music editor

That's an NSF. Dont you have a FTM (FamiTracker) or FMS (FamiStudio) file? An NSF is like the end product, its not something you would ever want to use to make a game. Once a song is in NSF, it is basically code. It no longer has any high-level information (instruments, etc.). It not something you w...
