    8-bit music is the term for making electronic tunes on sound chips used in old computers. The music can vary between styles but is all related by how it is created, through game consoles and vintage systems that produce simple yet memorable synthesized beats. While remaining niche, 8-bit music has become a genre in itself, which has also developed into what is known as chiptune.

    The popularity of making this music increased through the eighties and nineties, as the equipment began to reduce in price. This meant that individuals could create tunes inexpensively and by themselves in their own homes. Classic devises to do this included the Commodore 64, the Sega Game Gear, Megadrive, and the Nintendo DS and Gameboy. These remain the go-to ways of producing 8-bit music now.

    Great good old console games

    The music began for the original games themselves as the only way to soundtrack them. The technology had many limitations, which became a benefit by resulting in a collective trademark sound. It perhaps enhanced the inventiveness of the programmers to create catchy and effective tunes. The themes and sounds of old games such as Space Invaders, Pac-Man, Sonic The Hedgehog, and Super Mario are universally known and loved, not just for nostalgia but also for the 8-bit music itself.

    Culture influence

    The genre became a more collective scene when events and club nights appeared, especially in America. A small but significant cultural chiptune movement in the UK, Europe, and Japan. Its influence even seeped into other music types, both mainstream and underground, with experimental rock bands sampling 8-bit tunes and electronic dance music replicating the bleeps and beats.

    8 bit music in iPhone and iPad games

    Nowadays, finding the facilities needed to create 8-bit music has become even more straightforward. Several apps can be downloaded to smartphones and tablets that successfully emulate the techniques and replicates sounds from the vintage consoles to allow users to produce their chiptunes from the comfort of their iPad. This has seen its use in popular music increase, and while remaining a niche underground scene, it has brought the genre to many more people worldwide.
