I'm considering giving this a go, but I'm afraid of commitment and should probably be doing other things.

If you sign up but don't deliver you'll spend a weekend with the pain monster.

Nope, they have to be original tunes.

What if they're public domain tunes? I was thinking Ravel's Mother Goose suite, which has been public domain for the past 4 years.

I've got a ton of songs written using MIDI that I could 8-bit up with the right software. Any particular genre? Cause most of mine are written as metal tunes.

It's not about copyright, it's about having a collection of original 8-bit style songs. There are enough covers out there, this album is aiming to be full of original UG material.

Nope, they can be whatever genre, as long as they're in the 8-bit style.

Alright I'm in. I'm gonna need someone to run my MIDI files through an 8-bit VST, though. Not liking the sound of the one posted on the bottom of the last page

Did you check out the ones in the OP? Peach, Toad and Triforce are extremely excellent 8-bit VSTs.

I could do something maybe. Sort of like a punk-chiptune thing.

That's the track I'm thinking of fixing up to submit. Needs more bass and the kick needs some work too, I think.

But I think I used Peach exclusively for the synths here.

Fair enough, I'll look through my own ideas and see if any of them would work as an 8-bit. If I had to pick now, it would be a latin-y tune. Shit's gonna be fun.

A latin-style 8-bit song? You bet your ass that'd be fun!

I just went through some of my old tunes and 8-bitafied 'em... far too thick to work with

Might try and write a Jazz-based thing for it tonight!

Jet: That was sick man!

EDIT: Scratch that, I'm playing with quartal and pental chords! Let's get atonal up in this bitch
