Game Boy bass is Sine?

Postby Sky Yoshi » Wed Nov 04, 2015 10:12 am

Hello I'm Sky Yoshi!
Well, I want to ask that the Game Boy sound's Bass is really made by Sine?
(Sorry for my poor English {or Engrish} :oops: )
Well... I want to make the cover of Game Boy Musics and I want to make closer to the Original!
(Like my cover of Famicom Disk Writer ;) Link:http://forums.famitracker.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1162)
So... if you haave some infomation... PLEASE tell me! :P  お願いします!

The game boy has a userdef waveform channel that is quite identical to a 32-step N163 waveform.
Many people have covered music in GB style using only 2 square waves, 1 noise channel, and 1 N163 channel. However, using only 1 N163 channel will result in unimaginably high N163 volume(if played on hardware) in the exported NSF -- although this is only correctly emulated by a few NSF players as far as I know.
nsf.nesbbs.com under reconstruction, better player might be available in the future.

VRC6 PWM is GAY because it has colours of the rainbow in the NSFPlay keyboard visualizer.

The waveforms used vary between games, so there is no constant bass waveform, which means you can draw the waveform you like.
As an example of a pseudo-GB track check this: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=980
The author of that post has posted several other pseudo GB tracks as well.
