Hi guys, just registered to the forum. I'm a video game 3d artist that recently wanted to train my under-develop side of the brain in creating music (used to play drums in a band long long time ago). Decided to learn more and making chiptune music on my free time!

Hopefully I have something to share and get feedback in near future.
Till next time!

Hey everyone, I write music for Plogue Chipsounds, although I do have a MIDINES that I have used in the past.  I come here from micromusic.net, which is a zombie site now. If I get into a new community I may write more music.  I just uploaded my first song, Providence Skies. Check it out! I live in the NY/NJ area.

I am looking for good chiptunes streaming channels.  Please send recommendations!

Hello there everyone! smile

I'm Miguel Abbey and my artist name is Pink And Lark. I'm so happy to be here amongst other Chiptune musicians such as myself. I myself have been working on my craft for over a decade and finally I decided to go out and pursue my dream as a Stage performing Chiptune Artist big_smile Just two weeks ago I had my very 1st gig (up to 200 people) and my God! It was fuckin' awesome! The audience really received what I had to offer VERY very well. I love what I do and soo looking forward getting to know all you guys better including listening the music that you've created so far. ^_^

Here's some of my tunes for your ears to get a taste of what Pink And Lark is all about.

Blessings y'all. I am NecroPolo. I joined here after my good friend Vincenzo recommended this as a good chiptune forum, It was a long ago I just found the time now'days.

I've been a C64 musician since the ice age approximately ('89 or so) but I joined the C64 scene officially only a decade ago, releasing dosens of old tunes @HVSC SID archive. I work as a freelance sound enginner / producer, a performing guitarist and a music teacher. I create chiptunes in-between, released a lot of tunes and albums during the years, some are still to be launched. I am the member of a number of 8-bit demoscene groups as a musician and also a C64 tribute band called SIDRIP, included in an ample of different demoscene and C64 remix scene releases. I had the luck and honour to be in a pre-release test team of a number of C64 SID trackers like SIDwizard or Music Studio during the years.

I don't like to talk too much now'days.

Hi everyone!

Sorry to be reviving an old(-ish) thread, but I'm new here and this looks like the place for introductions, so here goes!

I'm Laurel; my chip name is Kemikziel. I dabbled a teeeny bit with chiptunes several years ago with an emulator, and only recently has it become a major endeavour for me. I got myself a decently-preserved Gameboy, grabbed my old LSDj key to set up a cartridge, and off I was! big_smile

While the glitchy and dubstep-style chiptunes blow my mind, most of my inspiration is drawn from those good ol' 8- and 16-bit games. Some of my favourite OSTs are Street Fighter, Castlevania, Mega Man... You know the stuff. I think about this music a lot, and I hope that someday I'll make music that's just as exciting!

It's hard to believe I'm saying this, but I've just released my very first EP just last week, and have been over the moon excited about it! I'll leave a link here (hope that's okay!) in case anyone wants to give it a listen. (Be nice please, I'm still an amateur!)

Networking is not my strongest suit, as I'm naturally a pretty introverted person (I'm sure a few of you can relate tongue); but I realized I need to come out of my shell a bit, especially if I'm to really learn a lot and make the most of this awesome community. I'll admit I've been lurking as a guest here for a little while; I figured it's high time I introduce myself!

You can also find me over on Bandcamp and twitter if you're so inclined. smile

Hey all,

I (rudely, perhaps! Apologies) posted an intro with a link in the Releases forum yesterday. I realize now I should introduce myself here! I produce music under the name Beast. It's mainly influenced by chiptune, ambient, and '80s new wave. I'm already impressed by the talent in this community, and look forward to spending time here!

My stuff is up at my Bandcamp page here: https://beast.bandcamp.com/


Cheers,

Noel

Hi,

(I have posted a similar message in general discussion before finding this thread)

I am BSC from Cologne in Germany and used to be a coder and musician on the Amstrad CPC in the late
80s and 90s. I have also written a tracker which was quite popular in the olden times called Soundtrakker.

A few years ago I got interested in the SID effect known from the Atari ST which I believed to be impossible
on the CPC until I saw a demo called "eklhaft" or so on the Spectrum. I started experimenting and came up
with some kind of SID player/tracker called "AYAY Kaeppttn" which is also on github:

https://github.com/BetaSoftCologne/AYAY

Last summer I got interested in this topic again and wrote another engine which mixes 3 virtual SID
voices into one, emulating some of the most common wave forms of the SID, which I am still working on.
There are some previews on soundcloud:

https://soundcloud.com/carl-carbunckel/tracks

Then, a few days ago, I learnt about an engine originally wrote for the Enterprise, first ported to the Speccy,
then the CPC which sounds absolutely awesome and apparently does some of the things better than I did.
BUT: My solution is less memory hungry (which is somewhat important to me as I would like to release
something at a demoparty based on this), so I am currently thinking about different options like cooperation
and such. It does probably not belong here but I am a bit frustrated to have found this other engine and
this some of my momentum for the project is gone.. Maybe that's why I am (also) here.. Looking for feedback,
new ideas, maybe some cooperation towards a production, positive energy in general smile

Anyway, I am looking forward to interesting discussions with you guys!

Hi there, this seems like a good site for me. My name is shell, im learning to use milkytracker and really enjoying it, only have one done so far

https://soundcloud.com/the-vice-bots/adventure-awaits

Working daily with it so i hope to have more and keep growing

I only have one question about the player, couldnt find it in a search although it might already be addressed; is there a chrome plugin for android that would allow me to listen to a track instead of only downloading?

Hello everyone!
I have been captivated by the chirps and tones of NES music all of my life, and embarked on composing my first original track in 2006 or so using the magical 8-bit plugin. I was fortunate enough to find game designers who had need for the specific style of sound that only chiptunes can provide, but had I not I would still be writing VGM style works for my own enjoyment. Much time has gone by, but my passion for chiptunes has only deepened. Matching this passion is my desire to converse and talk shop with other composers who appreciate the nuance and art of this wonderful music genre. I hope to listen to great digital symphonies here and share my works with the devotees of bleeps and bloops.
I've been looking for a forum like this one for a long while, it feels good to finally land here.
