FamiStudio is very simple music editor for the Nintendo Entertainment System or Famicom. It is designed to be easier to use than FamiTracker, but its feature set is also much more limited. It is targeted at both chiptune artists and NES homebrewers.
Modern DAW-style UI with sequencer and piano roll, no hexadecimal anywhere
Instrument & Envelope edition
DPCM sample editor (WAV and DMC support)
Full Undo/Redo support
Copy & Paste support
Note drag & drop with audio preview
Import from FamiTracker FTM & Text (official 0.4.6)
Export to various formats (WAV, ROM, NSF, FamiTone2, FamiStudio Text, FamiTracker Text)
Setting a zero volume on the volume track of the triangle channel will now stop the sound. This was always the intention (this is what SoundEngine/NSF and FamiTracker does) but it was not correctly implemented inside FamiStudio.
On Windows simply download and run the installer (Setup.exe). A shortcut to FamiStudio and the included demo songs will be added to your Start Menu. If you get a warning when installing or if the app crashes when running, please check out the documentation for the fix.
On macOS, download and uncompress the file anywhere and the launch FamiStudio app. The demo songs and included in the zip. The app is unsigned and might require you to ignore a few warning.
On Linux, the FlatHub page contains the instructions, if installing from the ZIP file please read the installation instructions.
A few demo songs are included in the installation folder (typically C:\Program Files (x86)\FamiStudio). Songs with no author are my approximate re-creations, based on the NSF.
