Advice for writing songs & noise

I'm making games with gb studio.

I use anvil studio to write songs.

I get errors when converting to .mod.

Any advice to write songs for gameboy is welcome.

Re: Advice for writing songs & noise

Are you using the template.mod song from GB studio ? Also not all effects are supported in GBT-Player. I understand the GB Studio uses gbt-player (

And yes more then 64 rows aren't supported in gbt-player.

So basically start with the template.mod. It has 64 rows and contains samples which are near to what the GameBoy sounds (not 100% accurate however). Only use the supported effects. (scroll down to the effects sections, everything else you should take out of  the mod file)
