Hey chaps...

Just wondering if there is any carts out there that cover all games that use extra carts like snatcher...

Also... Which cart would be best for chip tunes???

Which one is best for you depends on which one you like the most. Smile
Regarding difficulty, personally I've found SCC the hardest to get desirable results from.

BTW I don't think such an "all-in-one" cart exists.

Oh, also, here are two links that may have useful info for you about the different sound expansions:

AFAIK, no cartridge covers them all, but there are some that covers the most used ones:

- GR8Net has MSX-Music (OPLL), MSX-Audio (OPL1+ADPCM) and SCC+
- Carnivore2 has MSX-Music (OPLL) and SCC+, with an extra PSG
- MFRSCC+ has SCC+ and an extra PSG

None of them contain:
- OPL4
- OPL3
- The rarely used SFG-05 (OPM)
- The ColecoVision/SG-1000/SMS DCSG (SN76489) used by some few ports and emulators
