I really want to play some classic Nintendo system game music with my funky $0.25 speaker on arduino. How do I convert the music into some tones? Is it even doable? How many channels are we talking about?


i dont think its a matter of channels its a matter of emulating the synth chip in the NES

yea for as simple as it is its using a synth vs an apple II or a pc speaker which is just properly timed pwm clicks


If you have the original score (I've seen Mario music) you could do it.

Have a look at pages 18 and 19 of Oomlout's beginners guide: http://ardx.org/src//guide/2/ARDX-EG-OOML-WEB.pdf

Heard of FamiTracker? I know its not really what you are looking for, but that might point you to some great old-school 8bit music.

Thanks guys. I'll see if I can use the tone command to simulate a short score of contra, the one that is played moment after your heros ride the helicoptor away from the exploding island, very short. I wish I had music cells in my brain.
