Chip Run

March 5th, 2009 by


I wanted to make the most 8bit sounding song I could and this is what I came up with. I used all the classic free VSTs that make creating video game music so easy: Toad, Peach, Syntendo.  The drums are a simple bass and snare sound, with high hats every so often. I didn’t use 8bit drums because I wanted to see if I could make it danceable. The rest of the tracks are itterations of the 3 VSTs I used. I paid special attention to the drums for this track, although they are very simple I spent a lot of time putting variations and fills where I thought they were needed. Enjoy!
