Harlem VRC6

from Shakebit by Inverse Phase



Track written in: Famitracker 0.4.2
Chip found in: Castlevania 3 (Japan), Esper Dream 2 (Japan), MADARA (Japan)
Other names for chip: 053329

Channels: 3 (2 "pulse" w/3-bit duty control, 1 sawtooth)
4-bit volume, 12-bit pitch
Quirks: tuning of saw is slightly off from NES

The VRC6 was intended as a companion chip to improve the quality of sound in NES games, but it also added interrupts and memory control to access larger-sized games. It was developed in part by Hidenori Maezawa, who produced the Nintendo arrangements of Contra.
