Hello FGL world!  I have started making chiptune music and was wondering what you guys think.  Here is a link to my fledgling soundcloud

FYI this was done with http://www.pulseboy.com.  Awesome piece easy to use music software.

You use a browser based creation tool? Does it save? Can you edit later on? That seems a little crazy, but if it works, it works.

I use Plogue Chipsounds myself. TBH, it's a little on the complex side and just doesn't make me enough money to compel me to dig in very deep. If I got a project where chiptunes were the focus, I'm sure I'd dive in, but until now it's been mostly a vanity purchase that finds it's way into tracks as support sounds. It comes in AAX, AU, VST and a standalone (all in 64 bit).

As to your first post, that track sounds pretty cool (it's always hard to truly judge when there is no game available to pair game audio with). I think the three hit ostinato could possibly become annoying to players over time.

I use Plogue Chipsounds also, as well as Magical 8-bit Plug, Chip32, QuadraSID and some Bitcrushers (yes, turning real guitars into '8-bit' is cheating, but I don't care!).

That site looks pretty cool though... way harder to use than an actual DAW to me, but that's probably because I'm used to that way of working. This reminds me of old MOD trackers.

I agree with JHII in that it'd be good to see the game with the music 'in action' before we can make a judgment! :)

So how did you guys go about getting a portfolio set up, or did you set up a music portfolio at all?  Currently I'm working on a small shooter game but I would like to get involved with doing collaborations, and I'm guessing people will want sample tracks.

I add game links to my website as well as have a page with the audio only. I have failed miserably at keeping it up-to-date though.
