Use your Gameboy as a MIDI instrument

Recommended Posts

Saw this video today, thought it'd be worth a share. I'm way interested in video games and music stuff so this seemed pretty cool. Even though one could easily do this with software and synths that have PWM capabilities, the novelty in making music straight from the real hardware seems really cool!


It's worth a watch so check its!




Interestingly enough, it seems that the GB soundchip seems more versatile (imo) than the Nintendo Entertainment System's soundchip, since it can actually generate waveforms like triangles and sawtooths, as opposed to the NES only being able to generate triangle waveforms (although the GB can't use PCM samples like the NES). Plus, it the GB was in stereo too, as opposed to the NES which only outputs in mono.
