GameBoy sound emulation? 2008-06-17 23:31:06 Reply

Ive herd it done before, but i just cant figure it out, how do people do chip tunes with such accurate gameboy sounds? the only anwser i could think of was emu;ation and wav sampling would just be grossly time consuming, so how is it done? dose it require a game boy? special cables? program? WHAT?!

that's on way, but I would get a double male cable, put one end into your game boy, the other into the mic port on your computer, and boot up audacity.

Or alternatively you can just install .VSTs from www.tweakbench.com

They probably recreate it using various synths, try experimenting with square wave synths, you can get a pretty convincing gameboy type sounds.

I use KiGB as an emulator and LSDJ as a synthesizer. Also this site might be useful for some help on how to use lsdj.

Chiptunes (basically the same thing) are done with a couple of basic sound wave instruments, you can do it with a couple 3xOsc

1 Noise
1 Square
2 Triangle

That's all you need, usually the noise waves are used to create a drumline of sorts


Flash Count: 111 | Audio Count: 560 Sanity is grossly overrated and detrimental to the creative process.

What I did to emulate GameBoy sounds is I downloaded and installed FL Studio, then downloaded a VST called tb_triforce, which emulates GameBoy sounds. I also downloaded tb_peach, which emulates NES sounds. I don't remember where exactly I got 'em, but like the person above me said, you could find it at www.tweakbench.com.
