Hey guys! Me again!

Are any of you fans of Chiptune music? I know I sure am. So much so in fact, that I've slowly been compiling a playlist on Youtube of some of the best Chiptune [mostly] I've come across. It's currently up to 88 videos with a total running time of 4:40:49.

Interested? Check it out here: Chiptune'd!

Unfortunately, I haven't really updated it in quite a while, so if you know any music that you think would be a great addition to the playlist, drop a comment and I'll look into it!

Recently Added Artists:

  • Zabutom
  • Dubmood
  • Octapus
  • VVVVVV Soundtrack (SoulEye)

Cool. Might be total wishful thinking, but I'm hoping zep will release his music editor for Voxatron so we can do custom sounds and music1

This is a great soundtrack for blasting through the latest round of BBS levels.

I think he said something about having internal tools for music synthesis, but that they weren't polished enough for public use?

ah yes... the future looks bright!

Interesting discussion, but kind of off topic, don't you think? Particularly given that this is a blog post. =]

I doubt zep has any plans to release his sound tools, internal or not. Synthesization is much more complicated than it sounds, and most users wouldn't have a clue what they were doing.

How come you are missing Voxatron Preview 3 ?

And Space Phallus ?
Okay, it's not complete, but you can download the full version from souleye's website.

And Twift by Mouse On Mars ? Yes, that's the official music video.
You need to pump the volume up, but it's a very nice tune.


This song doesn't really fit into the playlist, but there's a high chance you'll enjoy it nonetheless.
Mouse on Mars: Distroia

@b0rsuk Thanks for the suggetions! I've been meaning to add some work from souleye to the playlist; the track from Space Phallus was done by him. I've also appended the Voxatron video to the playlist.

I agree, Distroia is pretty cool, but doesn't suit the playlist.

eprom, the music in Voxatron was composed using MilkyTracker - you can easily find that out (and extract the songs) by looking what's actually in the vox.dat file. Actually you could use any other tracker that outputs XM files (f.e. OpenMPT) to create music that is playable by Voxatron. Generating the kinds of samples that are used in those music modules isn't too hard, either. Many of them actually look like they were hand-drawn in MilkyTracker. The in-game sound effects, on the other hand, might be synthesized by the game's code indeed.

edit: apparently you can submit empty posts! %)

I've got a couple chiptune producers which I discovered during my instant re-interest in NES games.
My favorite is Spamtron, and the second one is Fighter X, which have cooperated with Spamtron on a few tracks. Spamtron is like my 8-bit'ish favorite, Fighter X is more 16-bit for me.
Spamtron's album, D-PAD, is really a gem, check it out.

Does music like this qualify ? A very good game with catchy music.


It's from The Horde, a very fun DOS game. There are no actual music videos from that game on youtube, I'm afraid.

Nevertheless, you can hear music in these videos (wait/scroll for combat tracks, they're awesome):

Just added a bunch of C64 chiptunes, mostly from Martin Galway. Hadn't heard of him before, shame on me.
