Game Emu Player is a component for foobar2000 that supports a wide variety of video game music formats. Using the GEP Control in the View menu, you can mute individual channels and adjust the overall tempo and pitch of any song.

The following formats are supported:

AY, GBS, GYM, HES, KSS, NSF, NSFE, RSN, SAP, SFM, SGC, SPC, VGM, VGM7Z, and VGZ.

foobar2000 also has support for any of these formats compressed in a ZIP, RAR, or 7Z archive. NEZ Plug style M3U playlists are also supported.

    • YM2608 - Support is still lacking.
  • Support for reading and writing meta data is lacking in some formats.
    • SPC - You cannot alter the timing on ID666 tags.
  • Timing support is still lacking for several formats.
    • GBS - Doesn't support NEZ Plug style playlists.
    • NSF - Doesn't support NEZ Plug style playlists.
    • SPC - Doesn't handle extended timing (intro/loop/end/fadeout) properly.
