I pronounce them as prenasalized voiced stops where the nasalised part is more important than the stop part. '~b' is something between /mb/ and /m/, where /m/ and /b/ are pronounced at the same time. Don't forget the people speaking Tj'a-ts'a~n are not humans (even if human-like), and their mouth and nose are a little different than ours.
