The Super Gameboy (SGB for short) is Gameboy cartridge player for the Nintendo Entertainment system. Chipmusicians who use LSDJ or Nanoloop can use the SBG to compose on a large screen. Wether its at home with friends, or in a studio environment, the SBG can be a great tool for Gameboy composing and today we are going to make it even better.

We will be adding a 1/8" (3.5mm) line level stereo jack to the cartridge. By adding a line out, you will be able to get sound directly from the cartridge for playback and recording directly into your mixer or PA. 

Step 1: What You Will Need

Here are some of some of the tools I like to use, they are not all necessary, but you will need wire strippers, a NES Security bit, a small phillips screwdriver, a power, and a soldering iron. optionally below I have a set of "helping hands" for soldering, and a magnetic dish for my screws (both items can be purchased at harbor freight for next to nothing and really come in handy for all your mods).  You will also of course need a 3.5mm Stereo jack and 3 wires about 5-6 inches long. Wires should always be sealed with heat shrink or electric tape. I salvage all my wire from SNES and NES controllers that I have scrapped for DMG button swaps.

<p>That's really cool and I like the splattered paint job.</p>
Nice paint job, what did you use for those nice splatter effects? Did you just flick a paintbrush?
Is that a digidesign desk?
hey any fly hunnies
&nbsp;Where did you get/make the LSDJ cart? I bought the ROM and the emulators work well but all the&nbsp;flashable&nbsp;carts I could find were up in the $100 range....
&nbsp;buy one from kitsch bent.. if you have the lisence for the rom he will send it to you pre-flashed&nbsp;<a href="http://store.kitsch-bent.com/product/usb-64m-smart-card" rel="nofollow">store.kitsch-bent.com/product/usb-64m-smart-card</a><br /> <br /> should never pay more than that (about 40)<br />
missing a slash for 1/8&quot; jack in the intro<br />
&nbsp;Thanks.. always something..lol
Very cool!&nbsp; Does the sound come out amplified at all (aka can you use headphones), or do you need to connect it to an amplifier of sorts?<br />
&nbsp;Nah, you cant use headphones... Needs to hook up to a mixer of sorts first. Thanks
