The GUSpnp is quite a complex card, I wonder if it will ever be possible to reimplement it at a reasonable cost. If flooding the market with inexpensive GUSses were the goal, it would be better to recreate the functionality of the original GUS. What it needs to do is well known (because of all the emulators that implement it) and the Interwave functionality does not offer that much. Trackers that can use it also support a variety of other sound cards really well, and the in-game support and MIDI functions are done way better with other sound cards…
On the tracker code, there is one bit to set to put the card in interwave mode.
Then, the notes period and panning values are different, only this.
Support/emulate fully the interwave is probably not really needed.
