I had to go back 2.7.9. As soon as I update it changed all my chords down a step in all my songs, and the new change in the noise channel didn't really mix well and sounded rather dirty with my tracks sad

Recently got Nanoloop 2 and I've been trying to sync properly to my Volca Beats. It works and everything however, whenever I slave nanoloop, volca beats considerably slows down the tempo of pattern, even though they're the same tempo out of sync. Am I missing something here?

Hi guys!

It's called, CHIP BIT DAY. It started off small with a couple of artists, but quickly snowballed into a bigger event.
Because of this, I set up a crowd funding page, so people can buy their tickets through there and support the event at the same time. … 13352619#/

Confirmed artists with pledged money at the moment:
Euan Lynn
Rituals (Visuals)

Potential Artists:

I've already paid for the event space, so the event will happen.

Any support would be greatly appreciated, be it pledging on the crowd funder or sharing it.

Joe Bleeps is good and a cool dude.

I've never dealt with him directly, but he appears to do quality work.

Having had Joe work on multiple gameboys, I can honestly is he one of the best for modding. Any spare Parts though, gameboymodsuk, as Joe gets his spare parts from there.

Hi guys! It's been a while! I thought I'd post the latest review that I've done on my blog, Chip! Bit! Sid! This week I'm reviewing Villainest's latest album, A good day to try hard, and it features a fusion of hardrock guitar, keytar & sega mega drive sounds. If you like your chiprock, them you'll enjoy this! … -hard.html

If you fancy getting on chip bit sid, just send me some stuff over via any social below! I listen to everything I'm given. Thanks for reading!

A couple weeks ago I gave my close friend some a chiptune album, Breakbeat Heartbeat's Leaving Home to listen to. He'd never listened to chiptune music before and was more adjourned to indie/rock music. He came back to me with his thoughts and it became a fantastic article on why the average joe should definitely listen to chiptune music!

Check it out:

Btw I will also be on chiptune & video game radio station, Gameface at 6pm UK GMT. I'll be playing all the music that's been reviewed this past month. I will also be interviewing the great J3WEL who has just released his latest album, Sick of This via Cheapbeats!

Listen to it via this link:

Thanks for reading!

Hi guys!

I haven't posted here in a while on reviews so I thought I'd give it another shot. Basically I do a chiptune blog called, Chip Bit Sid and I cover small time artists with good music who wouldn't usually get promoted. So far it's been awesome & the chiptune community, utterly fantastic! My latest review is on Nanode's Loopy. In short it's a fantastic album, featuring fantastic chilled melodies, along with cool leads and beats. To hear more check it out below:

Yes! Me too. I looked on the shopify but they're all sold out! When do you think they'll be back in stock?

Next tuesday is the deadline guys smile

And I'll PM you my email. I'd rather you link it me as a dropbox, as I don't like to give out my email. I get people sending me music for the blog, but someone managed to get my personal email add to send me stuff, even though I never posted it 0.o

Can agree with that. I was thinking of childs play, but honestly I would have no idea on how to send the money over to them (considering it would be physical plus pounds sterling not dollars).

In the end I've decided to donate the money to a charity called, Barnardos, who help protect children from abuse as well as help less abled children.

Not the most unique charity, but one I know the money will go to good use. I chose this charity due to my friend, who has volunteered with them for most of his life along with his family. Its also a lot more easier for me to pass the money to them as well.

I made a post as well on the facebook: … permPage=1

So now the charity has been locked. Sorry about the wait, but its hard to juggle everything such as work, life and the blog.

I'll keep posting updates on this thread as I go along. smile

Anything related to chiptune. Can't be so narrow when it comes to music smile

Anything is fine unreleased or released. It's about getting good unheard music to the masses smile
