    I swear back when I first got my Pandora there were programs you load up a rom file and could extract chip tunes from it. I know on the Pandora there was a player but I can't find one for PC. I'm doing a play through of an obscure SNES game and I can't find the intro music for the game and I need it to put as back-ground music to drown out all the cut 'ums' in my video, I have the title screen paused while I give a short history of the game and say 'um' like a million times.

    Does anyone know of a program like this? I thought maybe a SNES emulator did it but I can't find an option in SNES9x or zSNES.

    I remember when I was young extracting SPCs from SNES roms and playing them in Winamp. I don't remember if there was native support of it I was using a plug-in.

    Apparently, there is at least one Foobar2000 plugin for this: https://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_gep

    ZSNES can do it (you have to define a keyboard shortcut), SNES9x should do it as well (I saw it mentioned in the SPC file format description).

    I found a site with the chip tunes and it turns out Audacity plays them, witch is cool, then you just export to .wav. The site I found had just about every game, Japanese and other regions, so if I do any more play throughs I'm sure I can find the games there.

    Thanx though

    Audacity surprisingly. I actually had to use it to adjust my audio levels, blender was being a butt. But yeah, Audacity can play/edit chip-tunes!
