Let me know if I can help with that, this is the kind of thing I like. You might also consider using an existing module format (e.g. XM) as a stepping stone instead of reinventing the wheel, so you can compose your music in a fully fledged tracker (e.g. Mod Plug Tracker) and only perform a simple conversion later. That's what I did with my XM to SMPS converters (you probably never heard of them since they target the 16-bit version of Sonic 1), at first I wanted to write a dedicated SMPS tracker, but lazyness soon took over, and I don't regret the XM choice, so that lazyness actually was efficiency.

As of today I have a working tracker available for sn76489 + OPLL that can fully support both chips.

How do you cope with specific sn76489 registers in an XM tracker?

Since you said you were still working on it I had no idea that you already a functional tracker, feel free to disregard my post, I guess.

No problem, but I was just curious how you could handle that ;)

I'd be happy with just fm support, as it is now :)
