Why even have a favourite when you can have it all?

I love the raw 2A03. It's my favorite soundchip, it's so simple but so capable of doing many things.

I've yet to make a song that isn't 2A03. Oops. Seriously though, I just enjoy the simplicity of it.

I've changed my mind. Pure 2A03 leads to vastly more creative composition, in my experience.

I agree. Even though using soundchips is fun at times, I just enjoy the limits of the 2a03 because you have to try to get around the limits of the 4 channels (and DPCM) to make a masterpiece.

Creating the sampler script has made me like the N163 a bit more but I still prefer the FDS over N163 because sampling the FDS FM instruments for N163 will lose a lot of precision.

Would be interesting to make a voting about the most favorite soundchip ...

What would that achieve? We don't really have a use for that kind of statistical data. Popularity vote polls are kind of frowned upon in most places, and in here it would definitely be considered clutter.
