Hey I’m Dos, without x’s.
I got into chip without knowing it was chip years ago when I was listening to Module music, and eventually i found goto80.
I’m heavily influenced by both videogame music and music from the demoscene it seems like…
I play a lot of sega genesis, and as a kid I constantly played Castlevania 2 on the NES. I guess i basically write konami music.

I use C64 alot, and have been using lsdj quite often lately. I also play guitar, drums, keys, and do vocals.

TL;DR version at bottom.

Hey folks. The name’s Gary, and I hail from the mystical lands of leprechauns and shit. You know, that place that’s all green and everybody’s constantly drunk ’cause the weather sucks? Yeah, that place. At the moment I’m doing a TV and Digital Film Production course in college because I needed something to do for a year.

But anyway, I only really found out about chip music during the summer of 2011 and fell utterly in love. Then I found out how easy it was to get hardware/software to make chip music and I said I had to give it a shot. I mainly use LSDj and sometimes Famitracker but I want to branch out and try some other trackers soon, I’ve been digging the sound of the C64 and might have to try something with one of them over the summer.

TL;DR
I’m Gary, from Ireland, and I make terrible music.

I’m Chris Pickett, from texas. I started messing with the famitracker in late 2010 (after quitting domino’s) and i pretty much can’t stop. I pretty much listen to a bunch of poppy punk, ska, and melodic black/death metal.

Hello all, my name is Nicholas Davis but on the internets and in many social circles I go by Nad Darvis. The name started off as a joke, a kind of self porn name title and people started calling me Nad Darvis all the time because that shits funny.
I started purely as a gamer, owning an Atari 2600, Sega Genesis, NES and SNES as a kid. As time passed I upgraded systems jumping to the Playstation, N64 and playstation 2.
I never was much into music as a kid and right out of high school I joined the Marine Corps for no other reason than I was bored and these guys called the house with this “kick ass” job for me. I served 5 years as an Intelligence Analyst and was allowed to travel all over the world with the gig. I eventually spent a year in Afghanistan and it was upon coming home from there that I started to take an interest in music.
I started off using FL Studio and made a joke song called “sadomized before sunset” about the copy machine in the office coming alive and fucking everyone in the ass. AFter the initial joke tune I was hooked on making tunes.
For nearly a year I drifted making electronic music until I accidentially discovered chiptune music. An anonymous poster on a forum posted a link to Anamanaguchi-My Skateboard Will Go On. After that I totally and completely lost my shit for chiptune music. I mostly use FL Studio now but Famitracker is also something I am familiar with in the basic sense. Everything I know about music is self taught and I am still pretty green to the whole process. I am also teaching myself how to play the keyboards.
I still play more games than I make music, I literally cannot stop playing Minecraft these days.

Hey NoiChan!

I’m Jordan.
And I was the weird one who would dress up as Mortal Kombat characters and walk to school.
I also wrote some of my essays in the Unknown Pokemon alphabet, and based an environment project on Opassa Beach from Chrono Cross.
I started making chiptune 3 years ago with FL Studio and misc. plugins. Due to my laptop crashing, I found myself picking up the Gameboy and using LSDJ. Before chiptune, I made orchestral scores, but nothing really serious. I just have love for the string section.
I’m 22 years old, and I’m a girl. Not saying there is anything special about being one, but I still have fans that think I’m a guy.
I live in Illinois, born in Wisconsin.
And I love my cats more that most human beings.

I love the people of this community, and I hope for us to continue to learn from one another.
I know myself that I’ve learned so much just being part of NoiChan.

Love you all

Hi NoiChan,
Im Jordan, 22, but am not a woman! :P

I have been a hardcore (true) vintage gamer ever since I learned to use my thumbs.
I listen to chiptunes becuase I have heard everything else and even try to make my own on occasion (poorly).
The extent of my abilities are mostly hardware modification with a bit of software writing here and there.
I am currently a Senior at Central Michigan University majoring in Information Technology and Minoring in Engineering Technology, focusing on discrete circuits and networking.
One more semester and I will be set free upon the world to wreak havoc at my own will.
I love customizing gameboys for people who can actually use them and frequently toy with other devices that utilize 8bit oscilators such as the Atari 2600 and Commodore 64!
You may all can me Jazz!

Hey everybody. I’m Damian. I live in NYC & found out about chiptunes just over a year ago, & I love it. I grew up playing Atari 2600, Nintendo, Gameboy, & various others. I always loved the music of games the most. I remember always blasting the music of Streets of Rage 1 & 2 on my stereo when nobody was home. : )

I love the fact that there’s now a whole community dedicated to making the type of music I loved the most. In my life, I struggle with never having time for anything cause I got myself into immense debt, & have to work my life away for a few more years. : ( Despite that however, I just got LSDJ up & running, & I’m practicing on it every day. It seems quite complex, but I’m loving it!!! I have no experience with making music at all, but I’m gonna do my best with this cause I love it so much. Well, that’s all for now. Glad to be here with everybody. : )
