"Fakebit" is basically chiptunes produced using modern synthesizers in a DAW instead of an actual or simulated chip in a tracker. There was a huge controversy over the "authenticity" of it a while ago, so I try to avoid attracting any lingering ire by clearly labeling my chippy stuff as fakebit.

Yes, I knew that since I'm also an avid defender of fake methods. I've seen those threads on Chipmusic.org calling all Plohue Bidule's Chipsounds "posers"... I have my c64s and Gameboys and one Twisted Electron's AY3, but I think you could also get some raw wavetables in any sampler and achieve the same sound and feeling. It's a matter of skills and you definetely got a lot of that smile

Tools are just a mean to an end, so I insist: there's nothing fake here IMHO

dang, nice work. I don't sit around and listen to chiptune ever but can't deny the catchiness of what you put together here.

Plus there are things like chipset emulators (LMMS comes with 3) for an even more authentic effect.
