ah yes, the crispy format wishes:

(gameboy, midi and mariopantse were already suggested but i support them)

a dos mod format would be cool as well.
not sexmodit, thats boring. probably mod48k, that sounds cool!
im kinda surprised u didnt add vic20, so im hoping for that as well!
ted or tia maybe? (im leaning towards ted)
and even if i would probably not submit anything to it, amigamod sounds like a cool thing to have as well!

Gameboy music we enjoy listening to for sure, I remember my friend had one hooked up to a joystick or it was circuit bent or something it was neat. Or I'm imagining things or I saw it on youtube, I don't know.

Random question, will NSFPlay adhere to actual NES CPU Cycles and slow down when reaching 100% CPU usage?

I'm running some tests at the moment, and when the song hits certain (pretty silly patterns ;) ), NSFPlay will slow down about 10-20% replay speed for those patterns, unsure if this is a bug or not, or were the bug would be.

There are no tempo changes in the actual song.

Edit: Found the issue after some debugging, will solve it by reducing abuse on some instruments and channels on those areas :P
This is the first time I have ever noticed a slowdown in NSFPlay.

when i drive, I use only the Zx tune players to play chip tunes, the ones for: windows and android only.

at home it seems I'm either on here, youtube, or electro-music my entire day somethimes that's what i hear on computer programs, i just preffer the sound of ZX when I'm like, mobile for some reason so I really hope everyone considers uploading to ZXTune this year! Thankx everyone from Why Wou

I've never heart of the one NSFplay (is it nice program?) but I ZXtune program is a good pretty minimal program I really iike those I'll be honest I just don't feel right not listening to ZXTune on my android on a system, but this quiteness has somewhat tamed my ChipTune engines really. They overheat that way.

I always cool my cpus with Fan Cooler, like right next to my laptop, so if it runs at 100CPU then it should even go down to about 90 percent of that (at the most) of the usage of your cpu and the program makes wav files and high quality mp3 files very fast if that's what you were taking about idk? have nice night okee thanx everyone.

I cant wait to here peoples chips from botb on ZX tune some day on my car stereo. That will be how I will roll for a while. for sure hopefukly or on my vomputer speakers is the same i suppuse.

Please consider uploading to ZXTune Chips This year everyone! Thankx, from Why Wou

as usual, if anyone wants to try atari st trackers to apply motorola 68000 magic to the ym, i can provide help with emulator setup and maxYMiser (and to some extent MusicMon).

also, i made that lyceum page: I am new to ST YM trackers

lastly, i should be able to render your sndh's on real hardware if you want me to, no matter what tracker you use. mono only though.

i might make a music disk for this summers' sndh entries. (if you're curious and haven't seen them i made a player for 2 aym ohb's
so if you have options for rendering and want to be featured, be sure to upload a sndh for your aym entry! the player should be different than the 2 ohb players i already uploaded, and i'll try to render it on hardware.
i will render my entry on hardware so i can render yours at the same time shortly before the deadline, ask on my profile if interested
