I also have to recommend Inside Gadgets. I got my cart there and it works like a charm! The back-up process is incredibly simple (I clocked my last one at under two minutes!) and the customer service is superb. smile

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
