A rather 8 bit-ish music maker would be Anvil Studio.

Thats a little difficult to make authentic 8-bit music, go with that Anvil studio thing.

If I was at home right now, which I'm not, I'd be able to point you to everything you'd need to make NES music.

All I can say now is ...

Give Nerdtracker a try

Oh, and you may need a program like VDMsound to get the sound running smoothly.

I'm betting that this program will be more complicated than what you're willing to work with, though. However, other methods of making 8 bit music involve writing the music (and all the code for it) in notepad.

I just remembered. There is a really good program that allows you to make GBA music. It's called BoyScout. I've searched for it, but the website it used to be on appears to be down. You'll have to try and find it on your own.

I have an example of what it sounds like. I only tried making something on it once, and it was a couple years ago. Clicky.

You're not going to find easy programs!

There is one other way you could make 8-bit sounding music, using Fruityloops (or any other program that can use VST plugins). There is a website (yes, a website that has a name that escapes me at the moment) that gives free VST plugins that make nintendo-like sounds. I made a quick tetris loop while testing some of them out. You can hear that song here.

i remember the good times of eejay ;D

Bah ejay sucks, it's a big mixer

i totaly agree.... but you could easely do something with it...
and then i was young and i didnt care about quality... so i thought i rocked... mymy. i feel like an old man.. speaking of memories and shit....

still... those programs are much to advance for me to put time into.... i already have a game engine to code.. :)

isnt there any other way? like a wav converter wich converts wav files into mod files... and then reconvert them?

hey.. thats a good idea... im gonna test that.. then let everyone know if it works or not

How about try WolframTones
It's online, and it 'generates' somewhat 8-bit music. Not really '8-bit', but it seems like game music. I think it may work, give it a try.

8bit music is generally rendered in .midi files.

I found another one! This time it's a program.

It's called Open Song Composer. It's quite easy to use really, just click 'Make me some music!' and off you go! You will need Java for this, though. To open it, go to the folder where you had unzipped the Open Song Composer into, and open the folder called 'openComposer'.

Open the folder called 'dist'. You will find a .jar file called 'Open_Song_Composer'. Right click it, Open With, look for more programs. Open it with Java(TM) Platform SE Binary. It will take a few seconds, but when it finally opens, just click 'Make me some music!'. Now, save it in a folder of your choice with the name '<name here>.mid'. [I really recommend you save it as MID].

That's it. Just keep generating music!

It's called chiptune, and you can just get the mario paint one if you're aiming for free. Sorry, no link.
