    FamiTracker -- NES software synthesizertracker!

    I think this is an appropriate way to open up this thread!

    If the NES's chiptunes are your sorta thing (as they're definitely among my favorites, since I played so much of it when I was a kid -- and even still do now!) there exists a tracker that perfectly simulates the capabilities (and limitations) of the original NES hardware, in a nice, easy-to-use windows graphical-user-interface that is fairly straight-forward and easy to use:


    You can set up instruments in a straight-forward manner that's represented on-screen, if you're kinda dense like me and have hard a hard time understanding how to make arpegiattors and stuff like that work in other trackers (I still have a lot to learn. x3) It's hard to describe, but once you play around with it, it's easy to understand~ It shares the NES's limitations however, with only four primary channels available (and an external channel for down-converted audio samples.)

    It's free and easy to use, but only available for Windows right now, I think!
    If you've ever been interested in messing around with making chiptunes yourself, this would probably be a good place to start, based on it's simplicity and authentic sound. :3
