I know that song under a different name, but I forgot it. At least it's not listed as "Unreal Super Hero 3" on my PC.
ceci n'est pas une signature

Well the main problem with the GBA is the crappy speaker and audio circuitry. If you try games in a good emulator then it sounds awesome.
Not really. I tried some games on an emulator and the sound quality was still crappy compared to the SNES. I think it depends of the game, though. Some were converted rather well, but others, such as the infamous Sonic 1 GBA port and Final Fantasy VI, turned out really bad.

Best song ever.


Oh that's nice actually :D

Streetwalrus

Oh if you're talking about SNES remakes... Original GBA games have great audio. Look at the Pokémon games for example. :D

DJ Omnimaga

I definitively agree. I think it's because the SNES had all those reverb effects and sometimes allowed for higher frequencies, but the GBA has more compression on samples. They probably didn't care much about sound quality since they figured that most people would play games on a real console with no headset.

They don't have that much compression, it's the audio output which is bad.

Streetwalrus

Yeah as I said 99% of the audio quality loss on the GBA is due to crappy audio amplifier and speaker. :P

DJ Omnimaga

Then why emulators won't produce better GBA sound? O.O

Keoni29

Perhaps they emulate the crappy amp as well :P

They won't if they fidely emulate the sound output! :p

Streetwalrus

True, but you can hear a lot more details when playing on an emulator (noise and beat channels for example).

Keoni29

The sound is not filtered in the emulator. The GBA's sound output probably has some kind of analog filter before it goes trough the amplifier. This means you hear a lot of high-frequency noise when playing on an emulator.

This is SNES music but I like this rendition of Final Fantasy prelude theme (in a Mystic Quest Legend ROM Hack)

Scipi

It's not really chiptunes, but chiptune-esque. But I really enjoy this one:





Streetwalrus

I really love the Pokemon FRLG soundtrack as well as all of the Phoenix Wright music.

Yesterday I tried Super Hexagon and VVVVVV and these have totally insane music as well. :D

Also not exactly chiptunes but still DSP based music are the Mario Kart Double Dash, Zelda Twilight Princess/Wind Waker/OoT and F-Zero GX soundtracks are absolutely awesome.
