I have bought an Original Famicom (FF, VCCI, GPM-0x) and all the expansion audio cartridges (except Gimmick!), so I will report on correct balance and settings in two weeks or so.

I would really like to see KRIKzz fix the FDS modulation bug before releasing the final V20, it is almost perfect besides this bug.
you'll see, you can't balance anything on original famicom because even at 160% internal cpu sound is louder than exp sound. Take vrc6 test rom to test and you'll see
But even on akumajo densetsu the sound effect are much more higher than the ost.

Still much better than old v20 beta though

Oh, that's a shame. Hopefully a future revision will allow us to have proper balance on original Famicom.

With new RC1 update Everdrive doesn't work after power on console. Just freeze on msg OS Unit.

I'm having the same issue, cant figure it out.  I've tried at least 8 cards of different storage sizes, formatted who knows how many times with every possible cluster size. Cant get anything other than "os init".  v16 works no problem, so that's what I'm sticking with for now.

First, Thank you very much.

RC2 report:

FDS AB Error 7 is fixed.
FDS random pitch changing is fixed: zelda sword sound is fixed, partially fixed bio miracle sounds.

Well done KRIKzz!

There are still some issues with FDS audio though:
Lead instruments in Bio Miracle still playing two octaves above original pitch in world 1-2.
In"Ai Senshi Nicol" note start (volume swell) on lead instrument is too fast, was slower and slightly more accurate in v16.

If possible, more steps in Audio Balance menu should be added from 200 to 40% to allow finer adjustment.

Well, probably this is all what i can do for FDS audio, at least for now, unles there is no some complete documentation. I already spent tons of time on digging emulator sources and some own oscilloscope researches. Just too much effort for such feature like fds audio. At the moment i don't have any ideas about possible fds fixes anyway.
As for balance values, may be i will include new values in next os release, but for v20 i will leave all as is

These settings also work with the AVS but the AVS expansion volume should be set to match one of the expansion games, then all other games will be balanced.
I didn't get that. What do you set your AVS to? I have the slider set all the way to the right.

Maybe if we asked kevtris on atariage, he knows a lot about NES audio.

Thanks Krikkz, everything looking and sounding great. Will the mapper issue be a quick fix?
