PC interfaced SNES sound processor


[Silverpill] sent in this interesting Super Nintendo mod. [Raph] interfaced a SNES audio processing unit to his parallel port using a logic gate and a few resistors. The project looks like it probably died off, but the goal was to use a APU to play authentic audio from emulated games. Schematics and code to get the thing working are all available on the site.

  1. Wow, there’s a blast from the past – I built one of these 5 years ago from the same diagram! Worked perfectly with Caitsith’s program so I never fiddled around with it too much.

    It’s an awesome project, but if you’re planning to do it yourself be aware that not all SNES consoles have the sound unit as a removable module like this – no PAL consoles do, and only some of the earlier American and Japanese ones. Don’t go buying a European console for parts!
