A while back I wrote a VGM playback driver for the SPC (S-SMP/S-DSP, i.e. the sound chip found in the SNES), which I released along with a tool that converted .vgm/.vgz files into .spc files. You can find it here (source code included).

Anyway, I decided to put together a SNES-side GUI and create a musicdisk with some hand-picked tunes from the Sega Master System & Game Gear, much like Oxygene and Censor have done in the past for other formats.

This is the result of that work. Tested only on a PAL SNES unit, and in BSNES. Please don't use ZSNES or Snes9x - both of them had atrocious sound emulation last time I checked.

Here's a youtube clip recorded from my SNES for those of you who can't be arsed to run BSNES or put the ROM on a flash cart.

I'm still curious to see what's the best thing that can be done with SNES sound processor.

By the way, about sound emulation in other emu's....it's actually not bad at all (snes9x seems to lack a bit but it's really not "atrocious" :P), but the main issue for me is that the timing is off. Sure, they're independent chips in the unit, but the emu coders need to understand fucking sync.

That said, it's not bad emulation, just off sync :)

xernobyl: Have a look at this for example, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_n_uDsdPh8E

SNES is a pretty impressive system in the end.
