Here's a track 2 tracks 3 tracks 4 tracks (ah ah ah) from my chiptune album that's in the works ... all inspired by traditional songs from Bulgarian folklore :) Some of the most unique music in the world - I thought that the 8-bit treatment was fitting given the Slavic roots akin to Tetris.

And yes, this is what I've been spending my free time on instead of my game! :lol:

The third one would have been a good fit as "town music" in an RPG.

I think this one sounds ridiculously like perfect town music. Haven't covered it though. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7il8yXZ ... X&index=46

Original style of music and interesting tonalities, but honestly becomes quite annoying after a few minutes.

Very cool! I like Balkan music in general, and there has been far too little influence of it in NES music until now :)

I enjoyed all of these a whole bunch. Arps weren't too overpowering. It tells me I should listen to those folk songs and instruments.

These are excellent! Are they constructed for the base NES hardware, or do they require expansion audio?

It's all faked - I use Propellerhead Reason stock synths in custom combis and a bunch of tricks. I roughly limit it to as if it was 2 NES's mixed together + processing and 1 other non-NES sound.

So I have 8 or 9 tracks done for the album, wanted to do just a couple more, ended up putting 9 more source videos in the folder!!!

I think I'm afraid of this turning into obsession and becoming "the ethnic chiptune guy".
