I know plenty of people that have done some amazing things in Mario Paint on the SNES, including one of our guests Gary Butterfield from duckfeed.tv.  Well perhaps many of you are unaware that there was a fleshed out music creator by Electroplankton designer Toshio Iwai who back in the early 90s was set to release his music creation tool Sound Factory on the SNES and it would be bundled with the mouse and mouse pad.  It’s been almost 15 years since the project was canceled and both the Eastern and Western releases faded into oblivion, but thanks to eBayer KiiroBomber and a tip from Nintendo Life, the recently purchased prototype of Sound Factory is available to all.  It’s a bit of a slog to find the rom, so we’ve made it easy and said you can find it in the links to the YouTube demo video here.  Enjoy!
