This is my first try on the chiptune, 8-bit or video game genre (w/e it is called.) My focus for this piece was embracing the constant melody seen in baroque works. When i was composing this I had fugues and symphonies in mind but it came out to remind me of a car chase from some cops 70s movie. Please I would like advice on how to improve my sound because I am interested in this genre of music and I would like to explore more of it, advices will be greatly appreciated. Without further disruptions, enjoy.

Not much of a chiptune fan...

But this deserves a place in some crazy retro racer! Good job, keep it up!

Ef-X responds:

I will. Thanks 4 the review, I'm glad you lik'd the song :D

Reminds me of an old racing game

I can imagine an animation revolving the olden days of gaming going along to this track AWESOME work here keep it up

Ef-X responds:

Thanks 4 da review. Yeah i was amazing for something car related (a car chase.) Glad you enjoyed the tune.


This is a damn close rendition of a late 80s tune, though if you're aiming for authenticity first and foremost keep in mind that the norm was breakbeats and a slapped, chalky kind of kick, not so much the 1/4 house beat we're used to today.

(what you did during the build up/intro is actually very reminiscent of that)

Overall you've managed a sound that'd make me think you hooked up a nes, an msx and a c64 so it deserves to be called a chiptune :3

Dunno how well a baroque compositon would hold up compared to this, considered how very few people will stand to hear an 8-bit harpsichord but disregarding that i think you've done a good job on capturing the spirit of that sound of times long gone.

PM me if you want links to hits from back in the day

Ef-X responds:

thanks for the review. Agree with you on the suggestion of the drums i shoulda chill back and made less of a house beat. Dunno never really heard an 8 bit harpischord :D
