NerdTracker II
GNOME vs. KDE; initial version of Sprite Cans

Low-effort custom engine to replicate functionality of QBasic
Nibbles

Pently 2
Concentration Room

Pently 3
Thwaite, Zap Ruder, Action 53 menu, Sprite Cans remake

Pently 4
RHDE, Famicompo Pico 2 entry "Breaking the Law"

FamiTracker
Famicompo Pico 3 entries "Reptile Medley" and "Movin' Out"

Customized FamiTone2
Haunted: Halloween '85; Haunted: Halloween '86 (The Curse of Possum Hollow)
(These were used because Pently 4 didn't have portamento.)

FamiTone4
Forthcoming project
(Used because of differences between playback in FamiTracker 0.4.6 and playback in Pently 5. Some of these are because Pently 5 uses "linear pitch", where vibrato depth and portamento rate are measured in fractions of a semitone, while FT 0.4.6 uses raw APU period units. The composer considers it critical that vibrato depths and portamento rates match exactly between FT 0.4.6 and in-game. Though 0CC-FamiTracker and j0CC-FamiTracker can use either model, a converter cannot properly compensate for the difference between raw period and linear pitch because the text export of 0CC-FT and j0CC-FT does not indicate whether the module uses linear pitch or not. This missing bit of information from the text export has been reported on 0CC-FT maintainer HertzDevil's bug tracker, but neither HertzDevil nor j0CC-FT maintainer jimbo1qaz has acknowledged it.)

What does "NSF" mean in the poll? I've made several album compilations of NSF files, but each NSF has its own embedded driver of course.

My vote for "other" is that I wrote one for Lizard and I'll probably going to continue using that one or modifications of it in the future. (Will open source it soon, but I don't plan to make it into a turnkey package or anything like that.)

My Giant Steps cover used a music engine entirely written in C, but it'd be hard to reuse for other music.

I was thinking of your NSF tools. But I also was including other forms of NSF output, such as Famitracker's NSF output.

NerdTracker II


Should I have included NerdTracker on the poll? I thought that was not being used anymore.

I agree with you that NT2 is so outdated that it's not worth including as an option in the poll. The things I made with NT2 are more than 15 years old.

I've used famitone, I'm now trying to out GGSound. I guess I'll put my vote in for GGSound, but only voting for one option doesn't tell the whole story.

For dev/testing with my old assets, I'm using the famitracker/famitone combo. Once the new project will be on it's way, I guess famitone 4 would be the first one that I would be inclined to try.

DABG, Sliding Blaster, and Nova the Squirrel all use Pently.

And all the NESmaker games are using GGsound. So, that number should be higher in the poll results.

The first NES game I made was for a 48 hour game jam. I prepped for it by grabbing a neslib/Famitone template, and playing with some of the related tools. My second project I wrote from scratch, but sound was sort of an afterthought so I went with what I knew.

Famitracker (0CC fork by Hertzdevil) for quick compositions. If I'm working on a homebrew, or other project then I always stick to writing my own unless someone else is in charge of the project and wants to go for a particular driver.
