I recently downloaded Famitracker to make music for a game I am making. I was wondering if there were any good tutorials that teach the basics and functions. If you have any links or any advice, just post them here.
Try looking on youtube if you like video tuts. Just know that instead of "beats and bars" you get "positions and rows" but theyre the same thing. Samples, voices etc. are the same as modern software. Its basically modern software under 8/16-bit and with a (some might say) less flashy ui.
