The C64 stuff has already been emulated, afaik. The two main formats I
really wanted was the VGM (Sega consoles and Arcade cabinets) and the RSN
(for the SNES) formats. Game boy sound has already been emulated in rockboy,
but it is laggy and it requires to actually play the game to listen to the
music. The music on a gameboy (.GBS) is essentially a game rom with only the
music on it.

It would have been nice if you had actually bothered checking if we
supported any of those first
