Can I record the music or sounds from the game?

Yes. If you just want to record the sound effects and music from a session of playing the game in MAME, you can use the -wavwrite parameter, like so:

mame <gamename> -wavwrite <filename>

If you'd like to record specific sound effects on their own, you can use other programs such as M1, which is a sound playback program that supports many of the same games that MAME does.

I don't get an error message, but I can't get sound or music.
