Here is a new sound engine. Also included is a manual, a sound compiler, two demo songs, a small test program and the source code for Music Demo 1.

Happy composing!

Added support for playing sound effects simultaneously with music. (Press Start in test program to hear)
Slightly adjusted the levels in the demo song.

That look really nice :) I really love the Mario 64 Bob-Omb Battlefield theme remix in the test rom, it just sounds awesome !
The driver is really polished but also very hardcoded, it would be interesting to implement it in SGDK (if of course you allow me to do it) but i'm not sure that is possible !

Yeah Amazing :twisted: Listening Final Fantasy VIII song in a Sega Genesis is so Awesome :D
Did you use a midi converter for making it or you have writting it from scratch ?

Congratulations for your works !

At one point I was thinking of making a MIDI converter, but got stuck trying to think of how to optimize the use of the staccato command vs. rest notes while at the same time making the best use of loops. So, I went for a text-based input language instead, as a step up from writing my songs using .db statements.

Feel free to try to adapt this for various purposes. You may want to change some things around.

In the future, I am probably going to implement more things such as PCM and the CH3 special mode.
