Game Music Box is a program that plays video game music files.

From the author's website:

(Game Music Box) supports playlists, RAR, ZIP, and GZIP compression, batch recording to sound files, and uses an efficient band-limited engine for good sound quality and low processor load.

Supports the following formats of Video Game Music:
SPC/RSN (Super Nintendo)
NSFE/NSF (Nintendo Entertainment System)
GBS (Game Boy)
VGM (Sega Master System)
VGM/GYM (Sega Genesis/Mega Drive)

I have included an archive full of NSFE (and some NSF) files that is unmatched from any other website that offers this sort of thing. As a note, I have weeded out all Famicom Disk System NSFE's as Game Music Box does not support them due to lack of support for the expanded instruments the Famicom Disk System calls on.

That being said, here are some excellent links for Video Game Music for each respective format:
Project2612 (Sega Genesis/Mega Drive VGM)
SMS Power! (Sega Master System VGM)
Zophar's Domain (GBS)

For archival purposes, here is the author's website: Game Music Box by Blargg

Tested on a PowerBook G4 M8592 with Mac OS 9.2.2 and Mac OS X 10.4.11, also works in SheepShaver with 9.0.4, so to the best of my knowledge, Game Music Box should work on Mac OS 8.6 all the way up to Mac OS X 10.4.11 Tiger PPC, it may also work on Mac OS X 10.5.8 Leopard PPC, but that hasn't been tested.

Architecture: PPC (Carbonized)

Carbonized, works on New World only.

Great to listen to these old tunes. I may try to make a few ringtones for my iPhone.
