Nintendo MMC5: Include PCM channel
Posted: Sat Nov 14, 2015 2:53 pm
I had been researching information about the Nintendo MMC5's PCM channel recently. The MMC5 has three: two of them generate square waves, and the third one uses 8-bit PCM samples. I wonder how DPCM samples would work in this expansion chip's third channel, and how PCM samples would work in the 2A03's DPCM channel. A new "PCM samples" tab will be added to the Instrument editor. While file size limitations and bankswitching are to be involved, I think the number of 2A03 DPCM samples might be affected by the number of MMC5 PCM samples. Why would that part of the chip be not included in FamiTracker for so many years? I wish that channel was there.
