Anybody wanting to make chiptunes or synth music should try Sunvox, which is a very powerful music composing tool.

Sunvox operates as a standalone program and does not require any installation whatsover; you can even operate it from a USB memory stick.

At first inspection, the software can seem quite daunting but after following a few video tutorials on Youtube, it really is quite easy to make excellent compositions.

This free software comes with several song examples, samples, effects and wave generators.  You can also use your own samples by copying them into the samples folder and loading them to the interface.

For a demonstration of how powerful this tool is, take a look at this video of it in action.  This peice of music was written by Sunvox’s creator, Alexander Zolotov.

I would recommend anybody wanting to use this software to its full potential to play around with the example songs and watch the video tutorials.  Once you have mastered the basics you really can create some impressive music.
