I second the FMDrive VST. I've been using it since it's release and couldn't recommend it enough. The ease of use and full range of capabilities of the YM2612 is worth the money you'll spend.

Here's one of the songs I've made with it for my drone/noise project. This is exclusively FMDrive.

This song is a mix of FMDrive and Famisynth (The PSG VST wasn't out when I wrote it.) with drum samples.

My songs have gotten progressively slower since I started writing music. Right now anywhere from 65-85. Slow and low that is the tempo.

Here's The Ghost Servant, SKGB and myself using a circuit bent version of it through some toy effects processor while it was picking up multiple radio stations simultaneously.

Here's some Segambient/noise/drone I've done.

Looked at the scales and lets use the G Major scale for example. It contains the notes: G – A – B – C – D – E – F#
so in LSDJ or MILKY TRACKER I would use these 7 notes in different orders to write my piano riff? just trying to get a clear understanding.

You got it.

Know what scale you're writing in and use all the notes of the scale to come up with melodies. If you're hitting a block writing melodies try instrument changes. Add some groove on your melody to make it funky.

Depending on the chord count the semitones from your root note and put each note in a different channel at that same place so they all trigger at the same time. Traditionally chip music uses arpeggios to play chords due to lack of space in each channel but modern trackers will allow you to program chords without having to worry about space. Renoise will allow you to put chords in a single channel.

As far as what sounds good just start messing around with different chord progressions. What sounds good to you will more than likely sound good to everyone.

See you squares there.
