Festalon NSF plugin

Plays music ripped from NES games.

Plays music ripped from NES games.

Festalon is a very accurate NSF(NES Sound Format) player. All of the basic sound channels are emulated, and support exists for extra sound channels as found in the VRC6, VRC7, MMC5, FME-7, Namco 106, and FDS(partial). CPU requirements are a bit high. You'll probably need to have a processor that can perform integer math at or greater than the speed of a Pentium II 266MHz CPU, and something a little faster if extra sound chips are used, especially the Namco 106 and FDS.

Staff review

This will bring back memories

Listen to all the golden musical hits from the original 8 bit Nintendo Entertainment System. NSF files are especially cool in that you can isolate different instruments (bass, lead, percussion, etc.).... which can come in really handy for producers who like sampling. It's amazing how

some of these NES songs can really trigger memories from the mid to late 80's; anyone who gamed during the 8 bit times should download this for sure. You may have to do a little digging around the net for the .nsf files, but, they are out there.


yes - This is the best NSF plugin for Winamp ever since it has full support of the sound chips and both NTSC and PAL music (since I prefer PAL music better than the NTSC). - January 15, 2007 by Daniel Ohlsson

A great NFS Plug-in. - I was in need of a NFS Plug-in, and I saw atleast three that would work for me. I tried NoseFart and with it's five stars it was sure to be the best. Well, I upload the NFS formatted file and when I clicked "next" it had reduced the nice sounding music to a long "BBBBBBBBBBBBBEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPPPPP". I uninstalled it and went to the next Plug-in. Well, for sure Festalon works and I would suggest you used it for your NFS needs. - May 6, 2004 by Ryan Pick - Nosefart is still better - January 17, 2003 by Kyle Gerik
