SidWiz

Postby Yung Gotenks » Wed Jun 21, 2017 4:40 pm

I want SidWiz so i can see famitracker songs with waveforms. Where can i get SidWiz though? I've searched SizWiz on google and three videos pop up but all they say is that They used sidwiz to generate the visuals. Is this program even available anymore? Rushjet1's doubt video has a download, but it's broken.
Does anyone who has SidWiz mind telling me where they go it from?

A squid with a higher post count than the NES can handle.

I wish the program could have 127-voice support for compatibility with OpenMPT.

RUSHJET1! IF YOU'RE VIEWING THIS, PLEASE EXPAND THE VOICE COUNT TO THE NUMBER ABOVE

If you're using 127 channels in your song, I don't think it's the kind of song that SidWiz is made for.

127 voices makes no sense. it can be done, but the screen would be so cluttered and scrunched that nothing would be discernible. its totally impractical.

if there were 127 Kraid's Hideout (NES) covers on youtube i would definitely play all of them at once and they are gonna be the most discernible things ever

Surely you can just record each individual channel's output (or batches of them) then recombine them using ffmpeg. In fact even two channels are more than enough.

The problem isn't that it could be done so much that it would be a terrible idea to do it. With that many channels, you could barely see the waves. Even worse, if you had a bad internet connection, the whole thing would become a blurry mess.

^^^this

even if it could technically be done it'd be totally impracticable
just because you can doesnt really mean you should in this case
if you can figure out how, then go ahead by all means
its just something i wouldn't recommend wasting your time on, or requesting for people to waste theirs on
