I doubt any did wavetable synthesis, though some may have added additional PCM channels (perhaps ADPCM), though the NES already has a dedicated 7-bit DPCM channel.
I'm sure some added variable pulse and not just square. (NES has variable pulse)

Hmm, interesting they would add something that complex on the cart. Is it actual sampled based systhesis with long, complex samples being pulled from ROM and manipulated, or limited programmable wave channels like the PCE? (the SCC seems rather similar to the PCE's simple set-up except using 32 bytes per channel instead of 32 5-bit words)
The N106 is wavetable. It's just like a GUS sound card ( a unified bank of memory and channels that point into this global memory for which sample to play. The more channels you enable, the more frequency steps you loose. And the max frequency starts dropping). It's also a very similar the Konami SCC and PCE audio chip (which are small wavetable chips). Not the frequency thing, but that you define small samples for it to playback at a specific frequency. MMC5 adds a PCM channel.
Yes, but many chips can only do plain square (50% duty), like the AY-3-8910/YM2149 or even simpler SN76489, and I think some famicom carts even used such. (FME-07 is supposedly a modified derivative of the AY-3-8910)
In the NES scene, all pulse modes are referred to as square. It's not the literal sense of the meaning (50% duty cycle). It's square in the sense that it's only "on/off" (square edged pulse), as opposed to anything else (like triangle, saw, sine, or something custom).

I know this is a bit old topic, but here's something from the n106 cartridge... It sounds good; it sounds like some "Hall & Oats" groove. lol

I thought this thread was about Feminine Deoderant Spray.
Apologies for the misunderstanding, and the misplaced enthusiasm. Now that I "get it," I choose the NES. Although if the NES is not available (as some folks here are against this system) , I definitely THEN choose the FDS instead. Details at 11.
