 1: conceivably an input instead of a power supply?
 2-4, 45-47: goes to a 6 bit DAC, and then mixed with system audio
 9,10: VRC6a (Mapper 24: Akumajou Densetsu) is shown.  For VRC6b (Mapper 26: Madara, Esper Dream 2), these pins are swapped.
 16: passes through a small pulse-shaping network consisting of a resistor, diode, and capacitor.
 32: The VRC6 supports ROM nametables.
