Sound Test

Zanac EX MSX2 Sound Test.png

Get a game over and when the game over tune plays (or right before it ends), hold S + C + D + T until the sound test appears. You can also press the Spacebar while holding down those keys to end the tune early and skip to the sound test.

Use the Left and Right keys to select the sound number, the Down key to play it, and the Up key to stop the music. To exit the sound test, push either Space, Shift or Z.

Nos. 1-5, 7-12, 25-33 and 35 are BGMs; Nos. 6, 13-24 and 34 are sound effects.

Easter Egg

Hold down the Select key on the MSX keyboard when getting a game over but before the standard Game Over tune plays to get a completely different Game Over theme. This song is No. 35 in the sound test, while the standard game over theme is No. 4.
