The retro game music era is back, fuel your video games with our chiptunes
We’re proud to have a whole category dedicated to 80s/90s game chiptunes. And to be even more accurate, this music has been divided into three sub-genres: 8-bit music, 16-bit music, and music based on retro samples. The 8-bit music loops have been produced with very old game systems and handheld consoles such as Nintendo Gameboy or Sega Game Gear in mind. Raw and primitive sounds, limited channels and very fast and pulsating sequences. The 16-bit music loops are mostly made with FM synthesis, the same used in old systems such as Sega Mega Drive / Genesis, PC / DOS games, PC-Engine, TurboGrafx-16 and other. Lots of aggressive grooves, digital synth leads, and bell-like sounds. Last but not least the sample-based / tracker music loops, featuring downgraded (due to old systems capabilities) audio samples recorded from real instruments and modern synths. Many consoles such as Super Nintendo / SNES, Neo Geo but also Amiga computers and the more modern Nintendo DS featured this playback technique. Enjoy this video game music catalog and if you are a game developer, you have just found your number one source of game music.
