Please add a feature to export them as .fds somehow! I'm a huge fan of this project and will be using FamiStudio for my Disk System projects. I would love to see it!

Thats a good idea. As I was discussing with another user, the FDS is pretty much the only expansion chip anyone can get, so it makes sense.

As usual, releases are a few months apart so don't expect anything quick :)

Thank you! Would you be able to add a playlist feature maybe so that way you when you extract to rom it can play more then just 1 song?

Developer

Sure, right now I support up to 8 song per ROM. Would that be enough for you?

You use the left/right dpad buttons to switch songs. (not the most user friendly thing, but hey, it works). :)

That would be super!

Slight change of subject, since we seem to have FDS enthusiast here, I was wondering what kind of crazy things people managed to make with the ''custom'' wave form of the FDS sound channel. I feel like there could be some wicked possibilities. 

Haven't touched on it yet, very new to this software! But I will post when I create something clever!

The FDS had huge potential but I have yet to see a good song made with it. I've open a lot of FDS nfs to look for one and it's all pretty bad. One of the issue seemed to be (im speculating here) that composer knew that the channel wouldn't be available in US/EU version so they always made it something optional (low humm in Metroid, bells in Zelda, etc). Sometimes only the title screen was making use of it.

But agreed, huge potential there.

Please share if you find a kick-ass song in this list!

Finally gathered all the parts to make this a reality.

AHHHH! I can't wait! What song should I try?

Developer

Haha, well first let me finish this version, probably still 1 month to go :)

Not a lot of good songs on the FDS library unfortunately. Maybe you can make up your own?
