Tim Clark writes to point out the Magical 8bit Plugin from the awesome Japanese game console virtuosos YMCK is now Intel Mac-ready:
What wonders does YMCK offer?
- 5 waveforms (square, pulse (2 kinds), pseudo-triangle, low-resolution noise)
- ADSR envelope assignment for volume
- Supports pitch bending, bend range variable
- Frequency sweep function
Sure, it’s not a real NES, but I love plug-in emulations nonetheless: they open up additional performance options and insane configurations impossible with hardware. Now if only Chip32 were Intel-native. (As we discovered in comments, GarageBand weirdly refuses to run in Rosetta for PowerPC compatibility, something most music apps will do.)
