    Just a question. Can you tell me what device you are using in the beggning, oh and check out our channel it has 99 videos, (and more to come) of 8-Bit Music, and Chiptunes.

  2. B NThirteen says:

    That was unbelievably easy (I'm usually bad at figuring these things out) – thanks!

    @UkuFromHell you could make a lampshade for free dude all you need is a coat hanger a piece of paper and some glue lol

  4. camred123 says:

    @UkuFromHell are you in poverty?

  5. wyydescreen says:

    Sick dude :megusta:

  6. MrGemeco says:

    @Rockhopper0071234643 I think he's aware. Also that is not a touch screen laptop, that's a separate tablet. To be exact it's a Wacom Cintiq 21UX (approx. 2000 euros). I'd swear it was Cintiq 24HD if it existed on the post date of this video.

  9. Niko Giaimo says:

  10. Обед Монгало says:

    What music editing software are you using in order to separate, mute, and save each instrument?

  11. Brycey92 says:

    @UkuFromHell Has anyone ever told you that you're the definition of boss?

  12. Joseph Stevenson says:

    If you can't get guitarpro, download TuxGuitar. It's pretty much exactly the same thing but free.

  14. Jacob Johnson says:

    OMG it's MR.T!

  15. Jacob Johnson says:

    Obtw does it only work with midi or something? cause it's always saying "unknown file. can't playing."

  16. MrBoyanmetal says:

    Mr T Junior! where are your gold chains?! Silver aren't you!

  17. Flagstone Pictures says:

    If i were to see you on the street i would never guess you do what you do.

  18. iloveplayingpr says:

    lol u look like MR.T

    What are you using by the way?

    I am curious 😮

  19. greeniekin says:

    that is winamp. Just to play it back the wav and midi file. No editing here.
    Unless your talking about cooledit which is the grey editing tool with wave forms everywhere.

  20. greeniekin says:

    I have not used GSXCC. Though if you want real sounding guitar well then 8 bit is not what you want. There are just normally waveforms, envelopes and filters. A saw tooth is more suited to a guitar with quick attack and long decay and zero sustain. For an over-driven guitar a square waveform probably be used instead.

  21. Timmy Timson says:

    It's fuckin Mr T showing me how to make 8-bit music, sick

  22. greeniekin says:

    At what time are you talking about? you know the you change the instruments by hitting config and changing the instruments setting. Just try them. Also rmember to hit stop then play after changing any preferences.

  23. Dropdead Gaming says:

    That's a nice tutorial.

  24. kharmachanic says:

    I like that touchscreen set-up .. what brand is that? is it an all in one or just a monitor

  25. TestYourAbilities says:

    xD Yeah a lamp shade is so expensive, even though you have like a giant Ipad type thing infront of you.

  26. Hairee Stener says:

    GSXCC is for Noobs. Real 8 bit purists use Famitracker.

  27. Grimeslave says:

    Use LSDJ or Famitracker. Authentic my ass.

  28. Flairbud says:

    I'm holding the same pen.

  29. adammccormick95 says:

    GSXCC doesn't even sound that authentic.

  30. Halloo Liljeman says:

    Anyone know an app to andriod where you can make 8-bit music?

  31. hache gommes says:

    gracias por los subtitulos

  32. aselmac says:


  33. qweenofthestars says:

    That touchscreen PC is amazing. OMG I just died from the awesomeness

  34. Mr_Bebop87 says:

    Thanks a lot for this tutorial. This seems a far easier method than using tracker software. I find the attitude of people who say you must use tracker software ridiculous and elitist. I see it as being like people saying to play a certain style of guitar music, you must use a particular guitar with a particular amp. If the music sounds good, what does it matter? Besides, there were many more 8-bit machines than the NES/Famicom, Gameboy and C64 so what's wrong with a slightly different sound?

  35. AllChristianRAtheist says:

    lol some one has been flagging
    Haters no
    Companies who dont want people to see this
    Yes !

  36. ANTIPATHY says:

  55. Spikehead777 says:

    You have to have only the best of the best, dude. =) You can't gimp out on a lampshade, that's one of the most important parts of music production! =D

  56. The BetaCrew says:

    old videos point to the right

  57. Buddy Jesus says:

    It's a screen, not a touchscreen computer. It's a Wacom brand tablet, and for work purposes, it's not that expensive.

  58. 77josh77 says:

    It's a Cintiq and despite what others are saying, it's actually probably as expensive as some computers. It can cost over $1000 easily.

  59. Nerdy CatFace says:

  70. pale-nac0n says:

    GXSCC isn't 8bit lol
    Just because a song goes "BEEP-BOOP" doesn't mean it's 8-bit.

  71. JarodCoomer says:


  72. Candid Falcon says:

    It creates a similar effect though, anyways why would you want to create a fully 8-bit music, it's not like your making games for gameboy…

  73. rtermnc2 says:
