Sound drivers list

From NeoGeo Development Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Sound drivers are the Z80 programs, which are in charge of playing music and sounds according to short commands issued by the 68k CPU.

They're contained in the M1 ROMs or in the Z80 file. They include the player code as well as "tracker music" type data (sometimes banked).

The Universe BIOS has a jukebox function that uses a database of music commands for every game.

ADK's "M.C." is Makio Chiba. Technos "R. ASHWORTH" is Robert C. Ashworth.
