TWiC 197: Classic Chiptune Hardware (Gameboy, NES and Genesis)

This episode we’re going to focus on hardware based chiptune music, including gameboy songs made with the homebrew rom LSDj, Nintendo-style music made with NES compatible program Famitracker, and FM Synthesis like the Sega Genesis! Fans of old PC games will be pleased to know we’ve got an album created entirely on the Sound Blaster 16, a soundcard for home computers released back in 1992. That’s what we’re going to hear first, by chiptune legend and Oxygen Star who got his start performing live drums at PAX East in Boston.

Want to make some chiptunes like these? Check out FamiTracker and LSDj!
