Oops, all papu.

So a long time ago, earlier this year, I had a poll that asked which plug-in I should add based on name alone. One item on it was FreeBoy Color, this is in actuality a GameBoy sound chip emulator. It's here now. Internally it's called "papu" and I have no idea why, but whatever, here it is.

I made sure every track, including the drums, were FreeBoy Color (save for the bird; don't worry, it's still here), so this is as close to true chiptune as this generator will get, probably, and I had to modify the waveform generator somewhat to do it.

I'm still missing Vibed, a 9-oscillator synth, LB302, which I don't care much about, Kicker, which I also don't care about, Opulenz, a 2 operator FM synth, Organic, an additive synth, and ZynAddSubFX, which requires a program all its own because of how massive it is and can probably replace every other plug-in.

Nice, digging the chip tune.  Big time Zelda vibes.

The chips may be fake, but the chiptune is real. Thanks man.

That's one Zelda game I'd love to play.

It’s a chipgrinder standing on a busy data bus with a bird instead of a monkey collecting data bits.  Very slick.

This is super pretty. I always loved (but had no real attention span to create) chiptune.

The drums are also made of chiptune.

The bird really catches them by surprise.

Thanks!

Me neither. Fortunately I have a generator that'll do it for me.

It has a zelda gameboy vibe, like towards the end. The drum patterns are interesting, kinda industrial chiptune.

This has a nice chord progression going on... I also like those sounds with slower attack > sustain sounds, they give this a sort of positively restrained feeling.

Also around the start, and the middle too, I guess. Industrial is an interesting take, but you're not wrong.

That's nice about FreeBoy, real easy to make it sound real nice.

You really gotta go to the beach someday, it's a sunset vibe at best.

That poor bird, it sounds he's getting smashed by those aggressive percussive elements. Beside that animal abuse a very interesting track! Nice!

The bird's having a wonderful time.

Really calming chord progression.  The drums almost take on a fireworks in the distance feel.  The bird enjoyed them!

The birds are popping, one way or the other.
