Transforming Songs to 8-bit


This is a how-to guide on creating an 8-bit version, or "chiptune," of pretty much any song you can think of. I  can promise you that the end result is fucking awesome. This will take 5-10 minutes.

Download TuxGuitar - google it!

Go to Ultimate-Guitar.com On the upper left of the home page click "guitar tabs." Search for whatever song you want, but try to make it either Power Tab or Guitar Pro. Get the Song.

Next download GXSCC

Putting it all together.
Launch TuxGuitar and open up the song file you saved from UltimateGuitar. You will see all the pretty music. Then go to File>Export>Export Midi. Once you have the Midi file, all you have to do is drag and drop the file into the GXSCC program you have. Immediately you will hear your song begin to play. It's really neat once you start experimenting with different songs.
