So, Zep (or anybody who has some tips)!
I'd like to start composing my own chiptunes. At this point I'm fairly comfortable with MilkyTracker from tutorials and covering songs, and I'm familiar with basic music theory from playing piano, but I still run into a brick wall of uncertainty when trying to compose anything original. I was wondering where you start when composing your tunes. How do you choose what instruments you want to use and what you want them to sound like? How much does knowledge of music theory affect your composition decisions? Do you use samples from other sources in your chiptunes, or do you create all your own instruments? As it is now, it feels a little like I'm trying to make a sculpture by shouting hexadecimal values at a ball of clay.
