Project Notes and Documentation

Overall module graph in SynthMaker

The NES VST is designed to emulate the 8-bit sounds of the Nintendo, remaining faithful to the specifications of the 2A03 chip. The plugin was built in Outsim SynthMaker to allow for an advanced user interface, and sounds were evaluated against the output of FamiTracker, which uses the Blip Buffer library to generate "perfect" alias-free primitive waveforms. In our project, aliasing is minimized with conventional techniques available in SynthMaker.

The following is a discussion of each 2A03 chip sound channel (Square, Triangle, Noise, and DPCM) and their implementation in SynthMaker.


Our square wave was initially constructed by summing two saw waves limited at half bandwidth, which really means 1/4 of the sample rate or 11,025 hz. This was unsatisfactory and we switched to a construction from saw waves limited at nyquist. The test signal was a square wave with pulse width modulation cycling across 25%, 50%, 75%, and 12.5% pulse width. The results are compared here:

Square PWM

Linear sonogram of PWM square wave. The first tone is produced by SynthMaker before correction. The second and fourth tones are produced by FamiTracker. The third tone is the corrected full-bandwidth square wave produced by SynthMaker. Notice the first tone produces undesirable full bandwidth clicks when the pulse width changes. The corrected tone masks this effect.


The Nintendo triangle wave has a distinct sound. It is produced by quantizing a triangle waveform to 16 discrete amplitudes. It also has an asymmetrical rise and fall. The falling segment of the waveform is slightly curved and the rise is linear. The triangle wave normally contains only odd harmonics, but this irregularity causes the signal to gain even harmonics, characteristic of the saw wave.

One period triangle waveform output of FamiTracker

Sample 1

4 bit quantized triangle wave, no anti-aliasing

Sample 2

4 bit quantized triangle wave, 2x oversampling, aliasing still audible

Sample 3

A-B comparison

Nintendo triangle wave (produced by FamiTracker) vs. aliased triangle from SynthMaker.

Sample 4

A-B comparison

Wavetable triangle vs. Nintendo triangle wave (produced by FamiTracker) This first attempt at band-limited wavetable synthesis used only 32 sample points as input. The resulting waveform does not have the high quantization harmonics.

Sample 5

A-B comparison

Nintendo triangle wave (produced by FamiTracker) vs. band-limited wavetable triangle from SynthMaker. This time, the wavetable used 512 sample points. The sample points were also tweaked to create an asymmetric wave shape.

The noise channel in the Nintendo is not noise in the usual sense, where amplitude or frequency would be modulated randomly. Instead, the NES sends a random sequence of bits directly to audio out. This is analagous to a square wave with a continuously-varying random pulse width. The NES produces noise in repeating sequences of 32767 or 93 bits. The pitch or color of the noise is variable at 16 modes. These modes are mapped to MIDI notes in our VST plugin.

The noise sequence produced by code is heavily aliased with a great deal of harmonic content above 22,050 hz. To solve this problem we subdivide time and create 8 unique output samples at every tick. These samples are merged and lowpass filtered to produce an 8x oversampled anti-aliased output.

Noise Oscillator Block Diagram

Noise oscillator in SynthMaker. Creates a new noise buffer every time a note is triggered, allowing every note to produce a unique noise pattern, characteristic of the Nintendo.


Delta pulse code modulation is achieved by either increasing or decreasing the amplitude of the signal by a fixed interval at every sample. The signal never maintains a steady amplitude, and the amplitude climbs at a limited rate. The NES uses DPCM to play sampled audio, and does so with an amplitude resolution of 6 bits or 64 levels. We achieve realtime DPCM in code. We allow the user to select 4 custom WAV file samples and attach the samples to MIDI notes C4, D4, E4, and F4.

Filter Section

The output is filtered by custom highpass- and lowpass-shelf filters. The filters attenuate unwanted ultra low frequency and high frequency content that may be produced by the DPCM.

  1. Matt,

    You are my hero.

    I've spent the last few months researching and carefully testing about 25-30 different plugins, VSTs, trackers, NSF players, and other tools that generate NES sounds in order to find one that was free (or close to free) of aliasing.

    As far as I can tell, you have done what no one else has. Your VST is the only piece of software I've ever heard get it right. Even FamiTracker, which is supposed to use the blip buffer algorithm, produces what seems to me to be aliasing (I can hear it in high octaves, and it's visible in an FFT).

    If I could send you a beer, I would.

    This is AMAZING!!! I always hated using Famitracker because it is confusing, but it always best the best NES instruments... now this... I can now make good 8-bit songs in FL Studio!

    But... there's one little downfall I think... and that's not being able to do volume/pitch slides and adjustments in the piano roll. v_v' ... like if I wanna have a Hi-Hat with diff volumes, I would have to have multiples in separate channels. v_v'

  3. Thanks dude! I will keep working on it... I have pitch bend working in the latest version, but definitely need to get velocity sensitivity. I also want to map the mod wheel to duty cycle.

  4. Felix

     /  May 4, 2011 Quote

    Thanks for the reply! I've been mimicking a lot of tunes from diff. famitracker projects that I found with this VST. I made Megaman 3's stage select, and part of Plug Man's stage from MM9, and it's pretty damn near accurate to Famitrackers!

    I've been telling everybody about this VST, so you'll probably be getting lots of feedback, and yeah, by far the BEST Nintendo VST!

  5. Felix

     /  May 4, 2011 Quote

    Oh, one more thing. The LFO steps go by 4's. I'm having a bit of trouble mimicking this one instrument....

    In Famitracker, it's Volume: 15,8 | 0,8,13,8

    But here in the VST, since it goes by 8's, it's
    Volume: 15,8 |

    Two extra 8's at the end. The Step time speed is at 16 ms (fastest). So those extra two 8's slow it down. v__v' I dunno how to get around this. <_<'

    If LFO Steps went by 2's, It should work.

    It's not a big deal really, 'cause I don't plan to use such an instrument, but I'm trying to mimic everything I can. xD!

    Hey Matt, checking in again with more feed back!

    Mk, so I'm trying to make this Square kick. On famitracker the pitch for it is |77 ... but in the VST the pitch only goes to 12. So it's not happening. v_v'

  7. Derik

     /  May 7, 2011 Quote

    this VST is amazing! It is without a doubt the most accurate I have seen yet. I prefer working in Cubase but I refuse to make NES music in there because it just doesn't sound the same. Now I can make NES songs in something I'm comfortable working with. For that, I owe you thanks.

    Just wondering are you planning on adding the NES expansions in future versions?

  8. Felix

     /  May 7, 2011 Quote

    Hey man, more feed back for you!

    Okay, so on Famitracker there's an instrument that is a pitch of
    0 -1 0 0 -1 0 0 -1 00 -1 0

    It's basically a little slide up lead. Well... in the VST's Fine Pitch, I mimic... however, it makes it a slide down, not slide up. Apparently the negative and positive have switched places.

    So I had to make it 0 +1 0 0 +1 0 0 +1 0 0 +1 0
    for it to be a slide up...

    So if one is to copy Pitch from famitracker, they would need to switch the negative in famitracker to positive in the VST.

    I'm really getting the hang of how this VST works and how to adjust things. I've already mimicked a lot of instruments! It's great! 😀

  9. Hi Matt,
    I think I found a small bug in your noise algorithm. If you play a sustained noise, it will sometimes abruptly change pitch at regular intervals. Try looking at an FFT of a few of the lower pitches of noise played for 30 seconds, and you'll easily spot it.
    Thanks again for taking the time to make this instrument!

  10. Vinyl Scratch

     /  July 8, 2011 Quote

    I thank you many a time for this great VST. I just have one question, will expansion chips such as VRC6, VRC7, FDS, and the like be supported?

  11. As someone that uses a lot of single waveform oscillators for that crunchy chiptune sound when producing, this is a godsend. I could just kiss you! Is there any chance you'd be willing to add some sort of DCPM-based saw wave presets? ( )

    That'd be an absolute godsend.

  12. I know what you are getting at. The way the DPCM sampler works now is that you load any WAV file in and it plays through a filter that makes it sound like DPCM. And another consideration is that the plugin is meant to be used in a full DAW environment so that you could load WAV clips of your favorite DPCM instruments into a different VST plugin. I understand the value of presets, however... Another problem is that my VST doesn't allow you to change pitch of those DPCM samples, it's supposed to be one-shots like drum kicks, etc. I plan to revisit the plugin soon and I'll put some thought into this.

  13. That's exciting to hear! I've been using it in a lot of my music lately and any improvements to it would be wonderful. When it comes to making hard bass sounds I think the NES is the premier square wave generator so this nearly 1:1 emulation of it is great. Any improvements to something that's already this good would be mind blowing. Keep up the great work!

    I decided to try out this VST, made a rather cool sample with it:

    However, whenever I use the VST in a Cubase project (Windows 7 64-bit, 64-bit Cubase), save the project, close it, and re-open it, it causes VSTBridgeApp.exe to crash (essentially rendering the whole project unusable until you remove the NES instruments, save, and restart Cubase/reopen the project). Here's the crash report:

    Honey, this is a thing from the lord, but you've got to get yo' ass on the ball and get dis thang complete!! I trying to make my music for church, and I can't adjust that velocity in the piano roll, nor can I do pitch slides, or note stacking in one channel, and I had to recognize that.

    Get'cho ass in gear, my dear! My church is waitin for a lovely 8 bit song about the glory of the lord!!!

  16. Hi Madame Orean, thanks for the pointed out some real problems. I was waiting to see the response from the people, but I've gotten enough feedback now. I'll get back to work and put up a new version soon.


     /  September 16, 2011 Quote

    I'm really sorry to be that guy...but has anyone tried and had trouble installing this into Mixcraft 5? It refuses to acknowledge this is in my VST folder in programfiles(x86) even after removing and adding the folder again. Everything else shows up alright but not the nes vst. If you know anything about this I'd be very grateful for any point in the right direction. Thanks!

  18. @The_Strange_Remain and sn0w75: if you are having problems using the plugin with your VST host, I don't know the answer, but the plugin was made with SynthMaker, so try searching your problem with that keyword and you might find something. Please keep me posted if you figure it out.

  19. I can't wait for you to complete this vst, hon. My church is gonna flip they wig when I make some megaman music

  20. Hey hon, I am popping in again to say hello, and reminding you that my church is waiting for me to make some blessed 8-bit gospel music!

  21. Hey hon, just wanted to say that I am excited about what God is doing. Stay blessed <3

  22. Hey hon. I made a nice song for church last Sunday. It lacked some things. I got good feedback from my church sisters. The pastor told me to use famitracker but I said no, I have faith in Matt Montag. He gonna perfect the best NES vst. Keep up the good work, Matt! Stay blessed!

  23. 1. The sound is not ideal
    2. Large CPU usage
    3. DPCM is not ideal
    4. Envelope set is more complex (if still on step)

    Translated from the Google...T_T

  24. Tough critics out here. Actually, those are some issues I was working on. CPU usage is too high. And the DPCM is not exactly NES, it favors flexibility instead of accuracy. I am considering going to a fixed NES DPCM sample bank, with a big list of presets like "SMB3 Kick" "TMNT3 Cowabunga" and "Duck Hunt Dog Laugh". I think these original game samples are what people would end up loading into a DPCM bank anyway.

  25. Hey hon, how you are? It's Orean again. Checkin' in with ya'. How your Christmas was? How your new years was? We was ballin' at church today. Found some new Megaman fan game called Rokko Chan, and I loaded some of they songs on my iPod and played it at church. My sisters was really flowing about. When you get yourself a chance, listen to that 'Volcano Man' stage music. It really put the holy spirit in me. Stay blessed, Matt! <3

  26. Hey hon, checkin' in seeing how you feel. Stay blessed!

    Matt, I really like the sound of this plugin, except for one awful glitch. I'm trying to do a stutter effect, one problem is that I can't sync it and set it fast enough to get the effect I want(only goes to 1/32 - going down as far as 1/128 would be great), I've managed to sync up the ms to the bpm(awkwardly), but now I'm having issues with an extremely stuttering sound/glitching/crackling that works it's way in and out of the sound.

    Interestingly it seems to go away more when I set my computer's power profile to "High power" so it could be some kind of buffer under-run, I'm not sure. I'll post clips when I have more of the track done.

  28. Hey hon! Stoppin' in to give you the good word. Letting you know that we've got a heap new ammount of church members this week. I played them some of the megaman music I made with your VSTi, and they think it is the BOMB!! I told them "Child, if it wasn't for Matt Montag, there wouldn't be none of this blessed music!" Mhmm!! <3

    Upon it's discovery, your VST made my work better by far. I was trying to get somewhere near the flexibility of FamiTracker's style, and it was all I needed. If you were to finish this, the 8-bit fans who wish to not compose their music by traditional standards (trackers) would highly appreciate this. Again, thank you!

  31. I can't figure out how to use this in Logic . Can anyone help me out ?

  32. Hey hon, it's Orean. You have you been? Lord of grace, mercy, and space!! We got a new heap of church members this week! I played some of the Megaman music I made with your VST. One of my church sisters said it was rather lovely but she would have wanted to hear more pitch slides. Lord knows this VST need to be made complete hon! Stay blessed!

    I use famitracker, but it's not ideal for live application. I've always been picky about accuracy too. But jeez, this is spot on. The DPCM channel is phenomenal.

    It would be really cool if you could input incoming audio into DPCM and spit it back out as a DPCM sound.

    If I might be so bold, may I put in vote for you to make an Audio Units (AU) version of Nintendo VST? The DLL file won't work on Macs and I'm sure there are a lot of Logic users chomping at the bit to use a great NES plug-in 🙂

  42. Please make a MAC (AU) version too. =)

  43. Hi!

    Too bad when using this in FL Studio, you can't adjust the velocity in the piano roll, and you can't stack notes or do pitch slides. *sigh*

  51. Shirley Phelps, can you elaborate a little? Did you try monophonic and turning on Legato for stacked notes/pitch slides? Also, lay off the bigotry.

  52. MSG

     /  May 11, 2013 Quote

    Great sounding plugin! One weird thing I noticed tough is that the pitch zeroes out at the twelfth partial which Isn't an octave (equivalent C to F#). To match my other VSTs I have to go full 12+ or -. Thanks for the free plugin!

  53. Gee, thanks for trollin, Shirley Phelps. Velocity response works just fine, and legato works as well.

  54. Hey, I LOVE this synth. But I am having a weird issue with the latest version.

    Every note is offset by a Tri-tone for some reason. So a C will be an F# instead. O_O

  55. Tom Smith

     /  July 12, 2013 Quote

    Hey, this does sound fabulous, but i've noticed something problematic. C is not C, at least it's not in FL studio. It's F#. I have to completely re-center the 0 pitch on F sharp before 'c' is 'c'.

    Any idea why this is? Is it a bug? or is it just like this for me? I tested with my other VSTs, and against my piano. the 'c' in this is f#, for all waveforms that have a tonal pitch.

  56. Dude, your plugin is amazing! I use it every day!

    I hope you release a revised version soon 🙂

  60. Hey-

What about the Sunsoft Bass sound too? 🙂 A good set of presets based on some of the classics would really help the creative juices! 🙂

    Good question. I have wanted to create a nice starter patch set for a while, including some Follin style patches. In the meantime I might post a little tutorial on how to create them yourself.

  64. Itching to try this but it's not working. I *think* it's because I have a 64bit host. Has anyone got this working in a 64bit host? I tried jBridge but it did not seem to work.

    Yeah, that's the reason. Sorry - it doesn't work on 64 bit hosts. The plugin would have to be rewritten to support 64 bit.

  66. Success! Well kind of. Turns out that you can run 32bit DAWs in Windows 64bit, so I got in working after all. Really cool stuff.

  79. producer matt: dude...i figured it out (apologies if answer listed above) is a mono/stereo can't just insert vst instrument (because this is necessarily stereo)...and conflicts with the plug-in.gotta hit F11...install to rack.
    then it loads!so sweet.great work on the software, matt.

    This didn't work for me. Still crashing after saving and reopening... Sucks because all the other VSTs I've tried just aren't quite the same quality level.

    Hey hon! It's Orean. It's been a minute! How have you been? How was your Thanks Giving? Me and my Church members are really excited about what God is doing. I'm so thankful that you fixed the VST up and allowed velocity changing in the piano roll and note stacking. I hope you allow there to be more LFO than 64, and allow more octaves in the pitch/high pitch. 15 just isn't enough... Stay blessed!

    Hey !
    I love your vst, guy, thanks a lot !
    I'm still a noob in creating music but i heard you'd like to hear what i've done with your vst so you can listen this kind of progressive music made with it 😉

  82. Hey, way late remembering to say this, but NesVST has me spoiled. I use it more than PooBoy and ProtoPSG most of the time, I just love the clean sound, and the duty cycle is a godsend-- prior to finding this I was using Famisynth, which isn't bad, but was very static sounding. NesVST 1.1 actually features prominently on Get Bit, my fakebit/chip album celebrating NES, GB and Geni chip sound (linked as my website) and I came here to grab the latest in preparation for my Patreon-supported weekly project, Fakebit Fridays. Remembered I wanted to thank you for this awesome VST, so: thank you, from the bottom of my chippy heart.

    (Now all I gotta figure out is how to automate this thing and I'll be in blip heaven.)

  83. This is perfect! I've been looking for a VST that emulated this chip for YEARS! I started using FL Studio back in high school (about 10 years ago), been producing music ever since, but I could never capture pure NES sound. Such a relieving find! THANK YOU!!!

    This plugin is really great. I was amazed that you replicated the DPCM sound quality for regular WAV files. One concern I have though is program change doesn't change the program of the VST which would make it a lot easier for replicating the 5 channel limit. None of the other controllers work it either, I hope you fix this one day but thanks a million, I love this VST despite that minor complaint!

  85. I would like to know the system requirements for this VST, because i tried to use this in my FL setup, and it causes my computer to slow to a crawl. I also use ASIO. Please help!

  86. I like using your plugin. Here's what I've done so far with it:

  127. This is the best. Just used it for a project. The only feature I thought could be useful is a built in arpeggiator. Maybe as an additional drop-down option under polyphony.
    Most DAWs have built in arps though so it's not really an inconvenience.

     /  September 30, 2018 Quote

    Found this recently, great plugin! Only problem for me was that the pitch-bend got weird or non-existent when I exported it, the solution was that I exported in real-time, and even that could cause minor hick-up sometimes, and I have a good-performing system. Still love it as I can learn more about 8-bit before jumping to FamiTracker!

    My Mega Man-inspired song, first 8bit attempt:

  129. Agreed with Zelascelar. The pitch bend does weird things as also the portamento does when exporting...

    Another issue, which for me is almost a deal-braker. How can I key-sync the attacks? Because I cant find a way for the vst to not to pop every certain ammounts of attacks.

  130. Is there a arpeggio feature?

  131. Nindo: Is there a arpeggio feature?

    Ok, I found a solution in DAW like FL Studio. Go to "Miscellaneous functions" and to Arpeggiator. Then play a chord. It works fine.

  132. a pitch range of 12 is too low. Accurate NES sounds in something like famitracker go way higher, up into the 50's.

  133. please lift the 64 LFO limit. i'm sick of using famitracker all the time to get authentic nes sounds.

    In my opinion, absolutely incredible, the amount of NES-sounding bits you can use with this creates traditional 8-Bit pieces like a dream!

    I have a query though, should you follow up this spectacular VST with an SNES version? I feel that having a proper SNES-VST ( something that pretty much doesn't exist at the moment ) could benefit people like myself who want to make 16-Bit music

  139. Winter

     /  May 30, 2019 Quote

    The current version is very broken on the current update of Windows 10. Clicking any knobs or interactive buttons creates smaller windows which in turn get smaller for every button you click. It's bizzare, I can send screenshots but I can't find an email to contact.

  140. Trodgy Pikachu

     /  June 1, 2019 Quote


    It's also worth noting that you CAN use this to make 16-Bit music, but having to use more channels to get to the SNES' amount makes it a little off, and using 8-Bit chiptune sounds to make a 16-Bit chiptune is a little awkward

  141. It'd be nice to be able to read the amount of steps you change on the pitch parameter..

  142. Love it.I didn't know about these plugin

  143. Hi, before anything i must thank you for this effort, this is a really cool vst as far as i have heard in some tunes people has done.
    But, im having troubles making Studio one 4 shows it in the list of instruments, i set the directory in the plug ins vst list.. refresh it and nothing happens..

  144. But international ce qui est pire est que maintenant que la blessure, qui était censé être mineur, est maintenant le garde hors du jeu à venir ce week-end contre le Celta Vigo Vigo.

  145. Hi there I was just wondering, is this vst royalty free? I really love to use this in my projects but I'm afraid that If I use it in my projects you could flag it down. I stream on mixer and I just wanted to know if I could use this in my stream. If not no worries I'll find another vst to use but I really wanted to know if I could use this one since I like how accurate it sounds!

  146. Hey Matt,

    your nes vst is one of the best out there. Any plans to make it x64? It would be awesome, even if you put a price tag I will buy it!

     /  May 3, 2020 Quote

    I have a problem with this plugin in 64-bit FL Studio.
    I play the sounds with a keyboard. If I use the plugin under 64-bit FL Studio, it simply loses the keyboard focus no matter what I do inside the NES vst interface. In this case, I have to click on the top of the plugin or outside the window to re-detect the keyboard and play the sound. This problem does not occur when I open 32-bit FL Studio and manage the plugin in it. Under the 64-bit version, "bridged" will also appear when loading the plugin. Maybe this could be the problem that the 64-bit version doesn’t handle the plugin natively, and that’s why I can lose focus if I make or change anything inside the plugin? Will there be a 64-bit version of the plugin in the future?

    Thanks in advance for the reply.

    I can't figure out how to get an adsr envelope with repeating sustain. With the current plugin it seems like you have to choose between repeating sustain or release, because the sustained repeating section extends until the end of the pattern. Seems like a strange thing to omit, all you'd need is a "loop point end" knob. Seems simple to implement.

    Am I missing something?

    for everyone having problems with using this is 64 bit hosts, just buy jbridge, it's a cheap plugin that lets you use 32 bit vst in 64 hosts (and vice-versa). This plugin bridged works great in ableton.

  158. Hey Matt, I can't use the VST because I need a 64 bit version too. Can we raise a particular amount of donations for you to write it in 64 bit?

  159. Hello everyone, I have heard the feedback loud and clear, and I'm planning a 64-bit rewrite of this plugin. It is a little more work, as it will not be built with a graphical synth tool like Synthmaker, but rather written from scratch. I will have a Kickstarter campaign coming up soon.

    For any Pro Tools users out there, NES VST 1.2 will work on Pro Tools, but you'll need Blue Cat Patchwork and J Bridge. Blue Cat Patchwork will open VSTs in Pro Tools, and J Bridge will take you from 32 bit to 64 bit.

  163. Oh man. Madame Orean's comments on this thread made me so happy to see; they were total gems. I was convinced that she was a "troll" of some sort with a made-up name. I mean, look at these gold nuggets:

    "My church is waitin for a lovely 8 bit song about the glory of the lord!!!"

    and this absolute gem:

    "We got a new heap of church members this week! I played some of the Megaman music I made with your VST. One of my church sisters said it was rather lovely but she would have wanted to hear more pitch slides. Lord knows this VST need to be made complete hon! Stay blessed!"

    She wanted to hear more pitch slides, Matt! Maybe Madame Orean was making me smile for reasons other than what she intended, but she made me smile nonetheless. Anyhow, my comment isn't all a celebration of Madame Orean's creativity in comment writing -- I decided to give her name a search and I found that she even released an album that's still on Spotify if you search for "Madame Orean Crosby," though this recorded before your VST existed. Unfortunately, I also found the last video uploaded to her YouTube channel (mashiyachministries) of the memorial service after Madame Orean passed away on April 23, 2018 -- less than 3 weeks after she posted this comment:

    "Hey Matt! It's bit a fine minute! I just wanted to say that I am so excited about what God is doing! My and my Church members was ballin', listening to some megaman music."

    I had no idea who this woman was before reading these comments, but I'm extremely impressed that a woman of her age and in her walk of life was making chiptune-esque music for her church to listen to (while ballin', of course), alongside posting hilarious comments on the creator's project page of a NES VST.

    Thanks for the VST, Matt. The 32-bit version runs fine for me, but I'll patiently await the 64-bit rewrite. I kindly ask you to consider open-sourcing it (I'm a Linux guy :D), but I'll understand if you'd prefer not to.

    Hola. Llevo mucho tiempo usando nes vst, hasta el momento me ha parecido el mejor sintetizador chiptune que he encontrado en mi puñetera vida, pero le falta algo que es esencial para mis composiciones y por eso he buscado otros, pero mi búsqueda ha sido frustrante. El problema consiste en el slide, me gustaría que fuera menos limitado y funcionara con las propiedades de notas en el piano roll de FL studio (como funciona en los instrumentos nativos de este software), así yo podría llevar un slide desde una nota específica hasta otra nota específica y en el tiempo y ritmo específico que yo desee. Si esto fuera mucho pedir, al menos se le podría agregar un joystick con un rango de slide de -12 a 12 con la posibilidad de poderlo configurar y automatizar a placer. No sé si me entiende. Otra cosa que sería exelente es poder hacer estos slide en modo polifónico.

    Hello. I've been using nes vst for a long time, so far it has seemed like the best chiptune synthesizer I have ever found in my bloody life, but it is missing something that is essential for my compositions and so I have looked for others, but my search has been frustrating. The problem is the slide, I would like it to be less limited and work with the note properties in the FL studio piano roll (as it works in the native instruments of this software), so I could take a slide from a specific note to another specific note and at the specific time and rhythm you want. If this were too much to ask, at least you could add a joystick with a slide range of -12 to 12 with the possibility of being able to configure and automate it at will. I do not know if I understand.

    Hey Matt. It's Orean. Long time now. I just wanted to say that I am excited about what God is doing. I'm also wondering if you will ever update this VST?

  198. That would be because it's not supported on MacOS yet! He's been working on an update. :>

    eezo: idk, when opened its just a text file... maybe its bc im on macOS:(if you can reach back it would be awesome!!

  199. Any idea if/when a 64-bit version will be available? I’m debating whether to purchase JBridge to use the current version or wait.

    Hey Matt. It's been a fine minute! I just wanted to say that I am excited about what God is doing! Me and my church members was really ballin' around to some 8 bit megaman tunes.

    I love it so far, but when I use it in FL Studio there's this popping sound that I can't figure out how to get rid of. I'm new to the program, so maybe it's a fault on my end? Has anyone else had this happen to them?

    How do i get this to work in studio one 5

     /  July 29, 2022 Quote

    the chip player catalog is insane and the reproductions are on spot, there is a popping noise, not sure if it's because your files might be 32 bit

  209. i can't open should work on windows 7

  210. Doesnt open in Ableton live
    Do you know why?
    I've searched for a while now and cant find a solution

    Hey Mstt :

    You srr the best , i just started using your pluugin wuth Mixcrsft 9 pro and the results are fantastic. I am making a YouTube video with yoir plugin

  212. I dont know how to install it. please get back 🙁

  213.'s pretty much a mess. It won't let you set duty cycles to 1. The volume LFO steps are preset and don't even let you accurately recreate actual sounds in NES carts. For instance, there's a square instrument in Mega Man 5 with 1 duty cycle, and an LFO of 14 (0-13). Easy enough, right? Well no, because the LFO nob skips right from 12 to 16! Why? Why would this ever be how you do thing? You can't enter number values in manually either. You have to use the goofy nobs.

    This thing ALMOST does it right, but misses so hard that it's essentially unusable.

  214. Appreciate the feedback. There is a mismatch between step sequencers of NES VST and how they actually work in NES games/Famitracker. I hope I can address this in a new version, if I make enough progress on it.

  215. Is it possible for this to be turned into a sound font? Or if you can send me a sound font version of this? I'd like to use this but I only know how to use sound fonts. (.sf2 file)

    Can you update it to be on 64bit systems? Seriously, what good is 32bit VST in 2022 ????

    By Any Chance Are You Gonna Add The VRC6 And N168 Chips?

    Would there be any chance of including a vst3 version? Some newer software doesn't have support for vst2. This vst is amazing and I don't wanna see it buried 🙁

  219. KleinkMusic

     /  January 3, 2023 Quote

    I second this support for VST3. For my use case in particular, MuseScore version 4 came out just recently and I found out that, quite annoyingly, there is no planned support for VST2. Supporting VST3 would unlock usability of your plugin for so many apps. I hope that's on the docket in the future.

  220. Yeah, same here!

    Eric Wettstein: May I also say I'd be willing to make a paypal donation for an AU version. Please email me if this is possible. Cheers, samples sound great!

    Hey Matt,

    I love your NES VST plugin and I've been using it for a long time.

    I have a question, do you have any plans on doing a x64 version? it would be amazing and I gladly would pay for it because I think your plugin is simply the best out there 🙂

  222. hi all olz just use jbridge its worth the 15$

    Thanks a lot, dude!
    I think World exists coz of people like you. So many great things you made

  224. Need this for recreating death by glamour

  225. Could you make a 64-bit version? Would love to use this in Ableton. Thanks!

  226. Hey, is this available for MAC? I doesn't open on my computer so I'm guessing it's just for PC? I would be happy to donante a little money if you can make it compatible as this plug-in is exaclty what I'm looking for.



  227. Hello!
