Chipsune 1.23 for the GBA Appeared

Chipsune is a GameBoy (color) Music sequencer for the GBA. Why you may ask? Because GBA was limited to what it could do for GameBoy music sequencers. You would have to use an old cartridge, and those don’t work on GBA Micro, and NDS/NDS Lite. Now, you can use this on those handhelds, and If you Line-In record, there is a lot less static (compared to older versions of the GBA and even GB/GBC).

The adaptor is a bare PCB, shaped to fit into a link cable’s plug and a USB port. Electronic parts are coated with a shrink tube.

Oliver also mentioned on 8bc that “the nanoloop USB adaptor ( will also be available with a MIDI-firmware which does exactly the same (appear as MIDI device, sync Game Boy to PC). for about $10.”
