I'm starting to work on a new game and I'd like to compose a few tunes with that true SCC sound. Does anyone know of any good KSS sequencers available? Thanks.

/wiki/Konami_SCC#Utilities
TriloTracker is the latest tracker, pretty stable and actively worked on. (TriloTracker beta thread) (Trilo Tracker - SOLID SNAKE demo - by Gryzor87). Note there's also an FM version in the making (not as mature as the (original) SCC edition yet).

I notice the TT-OFFICIAL-PACK.zip on Gryzor87's page is offline. That's a pitty, as that was/is a pretty sweet pack as I recall it. I can upload it somewhere, or Huey could chime in here? :)
(-UPDATE: it's at a new location: http://gr87.com/trilo-tracker-manual/)

The GitHub project page may have more up-to-date info/documentation than the trilobyte TT wiki page btw.

+ there's also, brand new alpha WIP: /forum/msx-talk/development/realfun-3

Will the game be for MSX or PC/Mac?

The following thread might be of interest as well:
MSX emulated sound VST for FL Studio?

Good luck composing! (Feel free to share some tunage when you created something ;)

Thanks for the link! As much as I'd love to make it for the real MSX, I still haven't found the toolchain that matches my creative process. I'm keeping an eye on the developments with C libraries, but I have yet to see a skeleton project that I can look and say "this is it".

Currently, I'm just too comfortable with the bliss that is writing games with Videogame, so it'll be probably an MSX-like macOS/Windows/web game like my previous titles. I'll definitely stick to the standard MSX resolution, like I did with Cityscape, because that's the kind of looks I like in a game.

To be honest, the only reason why Starship and Ms. Starship have higher resolution is because that's what the now defunct Chrome Web Store dictated back when I started working on them. Should I start working on these today, I'd definitely make all graphics tailored for the beautiful 256x192 resolution. Downscaling them now that they're finished would feel a little bit weird, though. Or not, maybe I actually do this, eventually.

is there a reason you need kss files in particular?

I just need the SCC sound, actually. I know that I can play KSS files through Audio Overload with high fidelity. But if I could write music with a different format that in the end also sounds like the SCC, I wouldn't care if it's KSS or not.
