You must have at least basic hex knowledge. If you have no idea what hex is, then I suggest you steer clear of this guide and figure things out first. It's also recommended that you read and save a copy of the YM2612 technical documentation and maybe the PSG documentation so that you can more easily understand how the voices and coordination flags work.
Some of these random things:
Anyway, I finally got the realtime music editing section done. Savestate locations and Z80 RAM equivalents are listed, with explanations on how to tinker with music, even while it’s still playing. Also added locations for a shitload of games, mostly from my notes. I also added more to the music porting section. And once again, various corrections and such... I can't be arsed to keep track of what I change anymore, so bleh. =P
