Sup guys, my name's Kuma, and for those of you new to the site, I'm a blogger, promoter, and gooftroop for Chiptunes=WIN that recently started a new column called "So You Wanna Make A Chiptune".  SYWMAC is an column that focuses on putting a spotlight on apps, programs, and hardware that will give you the biggest bang for your buck, as well as pointing out some that are definitely worth avoiding.

This first installment focuses on Tone Matrix apps, which are programs that work in a fashion similar to the synesthetic Yamaha synth known as the Tenori-on. 

Give it a read.  Whether you're a noob or a vet, this column might give you a sense of direction you've needed and may open your eyes to some new possibilities.

Thoughts and input are appreciated, so feel free to leave comments. I may not always respond, but I always read what you guys write, so feel free to express yourselves here.

Thanks in advance, and enjoy.
