Turbo/PCE Music question
« on: May 25, 2009, 10:39:58 PM »
I just found Famitracker, and want to recreate Turbo/PC Engine music in 8-bit NES form.

Is there any program out there where I can disect HES files by turning sound channels channels on and off so I can listen to certain sections by ear?

Like with the NES emulator VirtualNES, you can play NSF's and turn off the channels?

Ootake has the option to mute PSG channels!

That may be your best bet.

Though I don't know if itll load a HES file.  You could sound test games that have sound test, and fiddle around.....

I believe if you use Husic/mck you can compile a .hes into a .pce and load it up!

Give that a shot!

Well-made (most?) HES files are actually working .PCE files with a different extension.

You can toggle sound channels in Magic Engine as well with the number keys. Just rename the HES file to PCE and load it up.
