Can someone please explain how I can flash a cartridge or atleast tell me what flashing a GB catridge is? Apparantly I have to "flash" a cartridge to put the nanoloop and LSDJ software on the cartridge.

How could you make the same mistake on 'cartridge' 3 times?!

EDIT: With a little research, it seems you can buy a cartridge that you just insert like a normal game.

What would the point of turning your gameboy into a Synth? It only has a Mono sound to it and it would probably sound horrible. Plus you can't hook anything up to it, save for an iSymphony stereo.

It's called homebrew. You'll need a Flash card of some sort that will be able to communicate with both your computer and the device you want to use.

I would seriously advise on getting a Nintendo DS if you wanted to mod a handheld to be used as a synth, or mini recording device. I've done this myself and works really well.

Perhaps using a proper electronic/programming/coding forum would be better instead of a guitar building one...

Well, this is the GEAR building forum, so I would try here first if I was looking for a place to ask.

Yes this is a GEAR building forum. You know where you are.

Yes he wants to build a pedal/effect.

Does he want to do something that extends into a specialized real that probably extends beyond those in this forum. So far is seems so.

Is this the first place I would go if I was looking for a place to ask. Definitely not because I know I will find people that are probably more knowledgeable in this specific area.

i'm backing the DS idea, pretty sure i've seen some guy on the net turn the touch screen into one of those Korg synth things like that Muse guy has in his guitar

there is actually a Korg game you can buy. no modded needed. it is actually a retail product.
from what I heard it is surprisingly good.

Just go get an R4 Slot-1 device and put your homebrew on it. It's that simple. I myself are a large contributer to the Homebrew community on both DS and Wii platforms. As I was saying I had something similar to what the TS was after.

Although my setup would be hard to replicate as my DS now has a USB port with an mbox micro shoved in it.

... WAIT A SECOND...

You're telling me that there is a way to take an old Game Boy Color (the hand-held game system by Nintendo) and turn it into a synth "pedal" for a guitar?

Question #1: Is this a type of device you can line into and out from just like a pedal? If not, is there a way to make it work like that?

Question #2: How does it sound? Anyone have a sound clip or video I can watch?

Question #3: How much money/work/expertise is required to do this? With the right parts and the right parts, tools, and instructions, could anyone do it?

Question #4: Would this work with a bass? Cause honestly, I think it's the most bad-@$$ thing I've ever heard of, and I would LOVE to slap one onto (or into) my bass.

Alright, I searched LSDJ on Ebay... and I still have no clue what's going on. I found some gameboys that had been "Modded to work with LSDJ" but I still have no clue what that means.

I just want someone to answer those 4 questions up there precisely so I know what's going on ;__;

you're a ****ing douchebag dude, the guy wants to know how to build a pedal from something else, something ONLY a whole bunch of guitar nerds would know, this seems to me like exactly where i would ask this question, and the perfect place to put it, just cuz you don't know doesn't mean he shouldn't post here, it means YOU shouldn't post here...

Yo, can anyone please answer TONE DEAF? i wanna know this **** to, how does this work, can i do it cheaply? this is the only use for an original gameboy i can find... so what the **** do i have to do? cuz i'll totally do it...

Just get Pokemon Red bro, hours of fun.

And to the guys who were talking about it, yeah you can get an actual retail Korg cartridge for DS, I know someone with one and it's pretty fun. Not sure that you can record it though, but I guess you could line out it into your computer.

The idea of turning a gameboy into a synth unit is simple, the 8 bit sound is very unique, it gives a very harsh sound as the sinewaves are basically sawtooth and sine waves, and you can hook it up to plenty of things, alot that are circuit bent also have a midi out which can be plugged into a hardware synth keyboard/sequencer, also if modded enough they can take Kaoss pads and other synths.

your kind of not smart . its not a pedal, its a synth. None of your questions really make any sense. Anyways, can anyone post links or something about how to do this? is it complicated or could i do it with no experience at all? anyone whos done this before, please explain what you've done

What do you mean "It's not a pedal, it's a synth"? Have you never heard of a synth pedal? They exist my friend. They take normal bass notes and turn them into awesome, techno-sounding funky-things.

this website helped me a lot and thanks for the explanation on flashing carts. So apparently all I need is a "Bung Xchanger" or "Gameboy Color Tranferer" and lsdj, which I can't find any where. Anyone know where I can find one?
