Chrono Trigger MSU-1

Hack of Chrono Trigger

Description:

This patch adds support for CD quality audio to Chrono Trigger using MSU-1 chip invented by byuu. So far, it is only supported and tested on BSNES, higan and the SD2SNES flashcart.

If the MSU-1 is not detected, the patch plays the original music, thus the patch works on all emulators (but it is less fun to listen to). Some alteration might happen when running on a emulator or flash cart that doesn’t support MSU-1.

Everything to build the audio pack is included in the patch but you have the buy Blake Robinson’s Chrono Symphony in FLAC format first, see README for more details.

The MSU-1 Hack That Got It Right.

Reviewed By: Chronosplit on 26 Sep 2015

Recently hacks for MSU-1 on everyone’s favorite SNES games have been cropping up. The problem with most of them? The music isn’t always the best translation ever of the original chiptune, making the upgrade debatable.

By using the Chrono Trigger Symphony (and yes you have to buy it which may feel odd for a romhack), this sounds much more fitting. It’s maybe a little bit too bombastic for it’s own good at times however, which is to be expected after all; even if extremely faithful the symphony wasn’t made explicitly to be a soundtrack replacement.

MSU-1 won’t ever replace the regard we hold for the originals, but this provides a darn good way to play the game.
