Came across this and thought I'd share here. I know there's a bunch of creative people and a few video game fans here.
JummBox is an online tool for sketching out and sharing 8-bit chiptune style songs(the beeps and boops from the days before video games had 3d
Songs can be made directly in the browser and all changes are saved directly in the URL, meaning to share any songs you make, you just need to copy
and paste the link.
It features a sequencer where noted can be laid out in patterns. There's multiple channels where patterns can be arranged into songs.
It has a bunch of built in samples, full of that rich 8-bit goodness, an FM synth with multiple waveforms, and a chip synth. There's a built in low
pass filter and a pretty neat envelope filter and a few effects.
I found it pretty manageable to use even on mobile despite my tendency to fatthumb all over the screen usually and it's a surprisingly feature packed
little music making tool for what it is.
If you like making music and enjoy those sweet, sweet 8-bit digital sounds. Give it a try. It's pretty fun.
A couple of little tunes I threw together quickly this morning:
sleng teng riddim chiptune
It'd cool to hear anyone else's tunes if anyone ends up playing with this and coming up with anything.
