2011 Edition:

I never thought this thread would have expanded in such a beautiful way as it has. All of you who have shared and discussed chiptunes in this thread have shown a level of care and camaraderie that I think is rarely seen on the internet, let alone a single thread specifically about chiptunes.

When this thread was started back in 2005, chiptunes were more like a hobby for many of us. But over the last 6 years, chiptunes have become a lot more than that. They've turned into a whole genre, culture, or even a career for us.

This thread alone is a seemingly ancient scroll of text that chronicled our emergence as fellow chiptuners, and it shall continue to do so for anyone and everyone who posts here.

Chiptune Appreciation Thread: A thread for the appreciation, sharing and discussing of chiptunes.

Welcome, all.

This is definitely replete with badassery. \m/

I remember Base Wars having some heavy music, so maybe I'll have to pull out the cart sometime soon and go to town. Of course, this will have to be after I'm done with my DoD stuff this month (which will probably be next Wednesday :D).

Nice! I still don't quite understand how modplug tracker works, but if you have to fill in all those little boxes over and over again...that must have taken a while. Great job.

you can get plugins for winamp for .it and .mod files and such if you don't like using modplug

I have probably 20 to 30 unfinished chiptunes dating back to 2002. I compiled them all onto one 20 minute long mp3 for fun. Then my computer crashed and I lost all of the IT files lol. So good thing I made that Mp3 and sent it to a few people. Anyway, If anyone wants to hear that, check me out on AIM.

I also offer to show anyone how to start making chiptune using modplug.

I made a chiptune once
or a few

here's my fav:
http://hem.passagen....nner/spanken.xm
placed second at a scene party with it, works perfect in winamp even, four channel niceness made in fasttracker 2

also, if you're into dream theater and know about their album scenes from a memory, and the song "beyond this life" check out:
http://hem.passagen....enner/beyond.xm , very short stuff from the beginning and not totally accurate but might cause some nostalgia (as much you can have from a cd made in 1999)

or just some jammish chiptune:
http://hem.passagen.se/tenner/bolj2.xm

found this one as well, listen to that bass solo go, hell YEAH!
http://hem.passagen....enner/dragon.xm

ok might as well list them all while I'm at it
http://hem.passagen....nner/gayrock.xm -what it says
http://hem.passagen.se/tenner/vegas.xm - WIP of swedish schlager winner

last but not least, some really wicked shit not done yet:
http://hem.passagen.se/tenner/odd.xm

recommend dragon, odd, spanken at least for a listen

enough

edit: whoops.. forgot to rename instruments on the vegas song

This song was RIPE dude, the solo rocked pretty hard core as well! Get back into it dude! 1:18 was very tastey!

i've always been interested in getting to use trackers... maybe you could write like a little tutorial on the basic stuff you did for this song?

btw, awesome stuff - keep posting these as they come!
