Name Description
G-NSF G-NSF is a Nintendo Sound File player based on the G-NES emulator engine.
Nosefart Nosefart plays NSF (Nintendo Entertainment System Sound Format) files so you can listen to those old tunes without actually having to play through the games. The Sourceforge project for Nosefart is maintained by Matthew Strait . The orginal author is Matt Conte.
NotSo Fatso NotSo Fatso is an open source input plugin for Winamp for playing NSF/NSFE files. On top of the feature list, NotSo strives to provide high-quality sound and accurate system emulation. All 6 expansion chips (VRC6, VRC7, MMC5, FDS, N106, FME-07) are fully emulated; both NTSC and PAL system modes are emulated; several system quirks (like the DMC's volume sideeffect) are emulated to try and play music back as it sounded on the real thing.
NSFplay NSFplay is a stand-alone NSF file player for Windows 2000/XP based on the sound emulation engine from NSFplug.
NSFplug NSFplug is a NSF player plugin for Winamp and KbMediaPlayer. It supports NES/Famicom internal APU and 6 external sound devices.
NSFten An NSF player for Winamp. Written in Delphi 3.0. Emulates all NES sound channels and VRC6.
SlickNSF SlickNSF is an older NSF player made upon request by the author of NotSo Fatso. Instead of being a Winamp plugin like NotSo Fatso, it's a standalone app. The main focus of SlickNSF is to be as light-weight as possible, and to provide a trace logger for debugging NSFs (unlike NotSo, which has no tracelogger and is a bit more demanding). However, the sound quality doesn't match NotSo's, it lacks several of the features NotSo offers, and doesn't emulate all the expansion chips like NotSo does.

If you're an NSF ripper, SlickNSF can be a good tool for helping to debug/clean up your rips. But if you're just looking for casual NSF playback, the author recommends going with NotSo Fatso instead.

VirtuaNSF VirtuaNSF is a Nintendo Sound File player based on the VirtuaNES emulator engine.
