Neil Baldwin releases droNES!

Neil has done it again! droNES is a fantastic droning program that turns your NES into a droning synthesizer. Neil has the software for sale on his new site located HERE! I have spent the whole day playing with the various controls of droNES and I have to say I love how destructive you can make the overall sound.

I also am offering the service of putting Neil’s droNES onto old school reconditioned carts. With ‘proof of purchase’ from his site I can burn proms and get it goin’ old school on original hardware. Please contact me directly as I am not going to offer this service through the store. LINK TO CONTACT ME. Here is what the cart looks like.

Like LSDJ? You will love Pulsar!

If you use LSDJ on a Gameboy, then you will feel right at home with Pulsar. Pulsar runs on an Nintendo Entertainment System.  Neil Balwin (The creator) describes it this way on his site, “Pulsar (rightly) gained the nickname of ‘LSDJ for the NES’. Features a very similar UI to LSDJ so LSDJ users will find it reasonably familiar. Highlights include Auto Echo (of course!), complex Table-based FX, a unique ‘multi-voice’ table effect, amplitude modulation ‘distortion’, scalable 180hz refresh rate for higher fidelity.”

Personally I like to use Pulsar as a solo lead inserted anywhere in my set for that original NES sound. MCTRL allows midi control of the basic functions of Pulsar.  You can midi sync Pulsar with your existing MIDI set up with the MCTRL.

Neil Baldwin has been generous by releasing great NES sound programming titles. You can check out his site here: If you select one of Neil’s titles to include with your MCTRL a donation will be made to the ‘Just Giving’ charity under his name, located here:

These carts are difficult to create. We have built in features that we believe will be useful. We have added board level sockets so you can easily remove the Eprom and replace/upgrade easily. If there are future updated versions you can easily replace the Eprom’s. There are two battery holders so you can change out the battery and not lose your .sav files. The usual security screws have been changed out with regular Phillips head screws so you can gain access to the internal board easily.
