8bitcollective: Upload, Share, Download And Enjoy Chiptunes.

8bitcollective logo

8bitcollective is a social network based around chiptunes and chip-fusion music. For those wondering what exactly is chiptune, here is a good summary on it from Wikipedia:

A chiptune, or chip music, is music written in sound formats where all the sounds are synthesized in real time by a computer or video game console sound chip, instead of using sample-based synthesis

8bitcollective is all about chiptune music sharing. So you could see it as a sort of Last.fm kind of site but only for sharing and enjoying chiptunes and the like.


You don’t need to be a member to enjoy all the tunes available in the site directly or download them at ease. but if you like the site and want to make your own chiptune music to share or show appreciation for your favorite tunes in the site. Joining is only 5 minutes of your time.


I personally enjoy chiptunes and given this is the best and current site on this scene. I thought it was worth posting about it. If you are fond of all the console video games from the 80’s and early 90’s. You too could like this site as there are some really good chiptunes in it.  The only thing missing is a option to also embed the tracks in a blog. But given that you can download them freely. that is something that for the moment you will need to address on your own.
