Creating MSU-1 Audio Files

Post by qwertymodo on Sat 1 Apr 2017 - 19:13

I've been wanting to update my older video on MSU-1 PCM audio file creation for awhile now, to go through the process of how to convert audio files and how to create proper loops.  Today, I finally got the motivation to go ahead and record what ended up being over 2 hours broken up between 2 separate videos, which was a lot more than I expected to do.  I don't know if anybody will find these useful or not, but here they are:

Many thanks. So I have my .pcm, I have my .sfc. What's the next step? Do you know of any other Links or resources that could help?

When you say you have your .sfc, do you mean an MSU-1 ROM hack, or are you starting with an un-hacked game and wanting to hack it? If the game hasn't been hacked yet, the question of "what's the next step" is not a simple one to answer. It involves reverse-engineering the game and writing new ASM code to interact with it. If the game is already hacked, it's a fairly simple matter of naming the files correctly, and creating an empty file so that the emulator/flash cart recognizes that the game supports MSU-1.

For Snes9x/bsnes/SD2SNES:
gamename.sfc
gamename-1.pcm
gamename-2.pcm
. . .
gamename-#.pcm
and then make a new empty file named gamename.msu

For higan:
Import the ROM into higan's library, then go into the advanced settings to locate the library folder. Go to that folder and you should find a folder containing the game you just imported. Copy all of the .pcm files (named track-1.pcm, track-2.pcm, track-#.pcm, etc) there, and then create a new empty file named msu1.rom in that same folder.

Hi all yes i watched the first tutorial how you do pcm it's really nice looked after using for a beginner i think it's a bit hard at first to have the result of having a MSU-1 full.

Because it is true that I have many projects in mind on some games that deserve the use on MSU-1 Very Happy Confused Confused

I wish it could be the easy way qwerty. I guess that means I'm looking for resources on hacking a rom to integrate MSU1. Unless you have a Super Mario Rpg msu hack in your back pocket Mario Fingers crossed ? I want to attempt getting a single track, the intro, onto a rom. At least to try and see the process through once. I may bumble around on one track for a month, but hopefully I'll become more acquainted with the terminology and shiii.. stuff Embarassed

Thanks again to qwerty for msupcm++ as well as the tutorials.
Many thanks to the mods for not banning my noobery yet.
