I've always wondered how exactly the sound effects for magic and spells and stuff were generated in Final Fantasy games(like 6-9 hehe ;3 ;3 ;3 no but really the snes/ps1 ones in particular)

A lot of square soft games from back in the day seem to use the same method... which I theorize is sound chip magic?

Really you can jump around and hear what I mean. But clearly it's not digital audio, they're using the sound chip to actually make the sounds. Were they programmed like midi? What kind of software do you think they used(most likely some kind of internal program)

Like check out the sounds in Saga Frontier:




I can't find much on this topic... but it really fascinates me.

Like how did the geniuses at Square muster up sounds like this?




The ingenuity and imagination... to make something like the Lavos scream AND it's produced by the SNES's soundchip! They made something so cool with such a huge limitation. It's so alien. It just sounds like fierce beast rising from the ground that's been consuming the planet from the inside.

Anyone have any information on this topic? I'd love to read more about this type of stuff.
