Power Source Software operation relies on power supplied by the Game Boy unit running it. Early cartridges also relied on an on-board battery for saving song data in SRAM.
Notes Little Sound DJ (LSDj) is tracker software independently developed for the original Nintendo Game Boy platform (models DMG-01 [standard Game Boy], MGB-001 [Game Boy Pocket], MGB-101 [Game Boy Light], and CGB-001 [Game Boy Color]). It can also be used with those models of the Game Boy Advance line equipped with a backwards-compatibility mode (such as AGB-001 [standard Game Boy Advance], AGS-001 [Game Boy Advance SP]).

The software is a pattern-based sequencer that also allows user control of the Game Boy's internal soundchip synthesis. Originally made available from the developer on physical cartridges, it has since been made available as a downloadable ROM image that can be loaded onto physical cartridges by the user (or used in Game Boy emulation software on a computer).

These cartridges do not feature any direct audio output; this software relies on the 1/8" / 3.5mm headphone jack present on the Game Boy for audio output.
