Any simple way to convert NES/GameBoy frequency to FDS/N163 ? Seems obvious to add GameBoy WAV using these. Moved Castle/Kirby here.

Really only look-up tables. Otherwise you have to do division to convert between "period" and "velocity" notation.

(Mildly off-topic: I discovered a new method used by ICs to specify pitch in a sound generator. I'd seen "specify period" (NES, VRC6, VIC-20, GB, WS, AY-3-8910 and derivatives, SN76489 and derivatives), "specify velocity" (FDS, 163, SID, SPC700) and "specify velocity in floating point" (all of Yamaha's FM synthesizers). But I hadn't previously seen "specify period in floating point": SAA1099.)
