simple way to see visualize code timing?

On the C64, a very easy way to "profile" code is to change the border color at the start and end of different sections of code. That way, you can see how many scanlines your code is taking in real time. Is there a similar trick available on the NES? Near as I can see, there are no register...

"hello world" tune in FamiStudio

I'm not musician, but wanted to get a feel for the 2A03 APU, so I smashed this together with FamiStudio as a learning project.

Hi all. I bought an old Famicom and a Family Basic with a keyboard on a whim, and have been enjoying the rabbit hole that is getting it working, playing old games, buying cartridges, emulators etc. The wiki is very useful, and I've started experimenting with C and neslib.
