Portable Music History by Knurek at 7:11 PM EDT on March 20, 2012
Well, Portable Music History just went public beta.

So far there are two sets available for download, with new ones added every 6 hours. For the next few weeks there should be only Game Boy rips there, but once we reach October of 1990 (in about 100 games), Game Gear ones will start showing up too.

All sets will be fully timed, and when possible tagged as well - feel free to provide tagging data for those that aren't though.

Please make sure to share your thoughts or questions here - the site is still missing some functionality (like better integration with, RSS feed for updates/new sets, search function), but should be fully usable nevertheless.

Hey, this is pretty neat! Of the ones posted so far, the GB bios and Tetris are the ones I've wanted the most (I already had Tetris though). I looks forward to more updates! I really appreciate the amount of work that undoubtedly went into tagging/timing/ripping these sets! Mouser X over and out.

This is much appreciate all the work you are doing.

After Game Gears, are you going to add Gameboy Colors Games? :)

Yes, both Super, Color and Advance Game Boys will be supported, alongside with Wonderswan, NeoGeo Pocket, PSP and Nintendo DS.

And if someone created a format for Virtual Boy or Atari Lynx, Watara Supervision or I'd add them as well.

Just a little note... Dr Mario's tags are wrong (I think).
"Player 1 Attack" is actually the 2x Chain jingle, and "Player 2 Attack" is the 3x Chain jingle.

I thought I thoroughly tested those tracks, but I'm willing to go back and investigate. (It's a bit of a pain in the butt to test two-player stuff, but all in the name of accuracy, aye?)

I should have asked this before, but is there a changelog for the site anywhere? I know sets are added chronologically, but for the case that already-released sets have updates after the fact....

@Electric Keet: I think that we haven't actually implemented anything yet, I'll need to talk with datschge about changing the RSS feed to handle the updates as well - if he hasn't done so yet.

There has been no notable changes to the already released sets so far IIRC.

I double-checked with extensive testing (all right, all I did was rig up a quick game, but I was swamped with other work until today) and as Player 1, executed a 3x chain and got the same jingle as a 2x chain. If you find some other way for Player 1 to get the other jingle, let me know and I'll gladly change the tag, but right now it seems accurate. Thanks for keeping an eye on it, though! I've been known to make errors like that before. :)

Since I'm a bit further ahead than you, time-wise, let me just say that even though Game Gear's sound hardware is pitiful compared even to Nintendo's Game Boy 'no frills' approach, in capable hands (say, Hitoshi Sakimoto, Yuzo Koshiro) it can create some amazing music.
