If You're Into Emulation Audio, Grab This App

As a person who has been into emulation for a while, especially the music side, Audio Overload has been one of my top used apps. While there are formats I wish it could play (MultiPCM VGZ would be awesome), I can't knock it down a star for that. I'm liking the new interface and super glad its on the App store. If I had only one request, it would be more audio options such as tweaking how it handled Snes audio output. Eitherway, worth a download.

Video Game History

I downloaded it to play some old AdLib Visual Composer ROL files from my youth and it works great, but it's so much more than that!

It handled my Amiga MOD files without a hitch and it seems to cover any audio format from old video game systems.

An invaluable tool to enjoy the original sounds of old video games on your modern Mac.
