    More than just a viz, this is an update and rewrite of the VGM compression tools. The idea is a (potentially) better compression, but it's also to split the tools up into smaller pieces, so that there is more of a swiss army knife approach to the processing that makes it easier to write importers and exporters, not to mention testing them. Currently, this is what I'm working through. Some parts may be dropped if investigation suggests that makes sense, and order is an estimate:

  • VGM import (90%)
  • Test player
  • PSG export
  • SPF compression
  • SPF test player
  • TI Player
  • MOD import
  • Arpeggio tool
  • Lossy merge tool
  • Ball demo
  • ColecoVision Player
  • AY export
  • Phoenix Player
  • NSF import
  • SID import
  • YM import
  • GYM import
  • MIDI import
  • 30hz Reduction
  • Volume resolution reduction
  • Tone count reduction
