About VGM files

VGM (Video Game Music) is a sample-accurate sound logging format for many machines and sound chips. It logs the commands sent to the sound chips, so the resulting files are much smaller than mp3s.

The normal extension is .vgm but file can also be gzip compressed into .vgz files.

The format has a long history, it started as a way to log Sega Master System music, and later more and more chips were added to its list, and today it supports dozens of chips and has features such as compression and tagging.
