Here's MODs in Memoriam's list of chip MODs, good stuff. smile

modsoulbrother also has some very good recommendations

http://www.mono211.com/modsoulbrother

everything by the classic c64 composers jeroen tel martin galway, etc... none of this modern pap wink

Yes, there are some archives that you simply cannot be without if you like chipmusic. HVSC being on top of the list in my opinion followed by the SNDH Collection, 2a03 archive (sadly down at the moment, and was not very updated lately).

Archives of .MODs etc is harder to store and update, since the filesize (usually) is a lot bigger than .SIDs, .SNDs etc. But the list of archives found at the 8bit today post Chema64 also mentioned is very helpful.

Totally check out the HVSC and all the other archives! Personally, I think the best chip-music is found in those haha.

It's always fun to browse themodarchive too, you can find some really neat old gems on there!

Want some random goodness?
Go to this brilliant site, http://chiptune.com, and open Tools -> Random Chip... It will download to your hard drive a ZIP containing randomly selected tunes in many formats smile

thank a lot for the link \o/

If you don't like the interface (I know it's a pain to use), you can still access the database by using my old Chiple, or simply use the ftp smile

I carefully selected one by one all the tunes you can find on chiptune.com, so I can recommend every tunes smile

I think my two personnal favourite chiptunes are:
Monday by Random Voice (Amiga mod, 4 channel)
Hybrid Song 2:20 by Quazar (PC xm, multi channel)

many of the albums on bleepwatch,
