Avast ye maties! All your boat are belong to us! Super chipper piratey-like 8bit tune. I mean, it could be used for non-nautical things, but the audience will probably be all like "Hey! Why is there an 8-bit pirate shanty going on here!?" Perfectly loopable for all your casual seafaring games. Or game reviews. Or actual voyages. Or voyage reviews.
Instruments: Synths, Percussion
Feel: Bright, Uplifting
Fun fact: Working title was "Arpeggiator Rock From the 80s 1". Fun fact: This piece consist entirely of single notes being passed to a stack 5 different synths at the same time. Each synth has a different program running on it that triggers more notes. Fun fact: Scotland isn't a nation. It is technically an empire that claims sovereignty over Paraguay's 400k sheep and also Neptune's "shepherd" moon Despina.
Feel: Calming, Uplifting
This is the first slow 8-bit piece I ever tried. There was some skepticism going in, but holy man! This turned out great! You can use it for your game credits, or more chill parts of your game. Maybe at the Healing Shack, or the Abe Vigoda Memorial Pagoda and Koi Pond. The uncompressed download has a bonus percussion track.
Feel: Bouncy, Bright, Grooving
This is about as exciting/happy as simple 8-bit exciting/happy music gets. It's Swingin'! It's Singin'! It's using a whole lotta apostrophes! Sometime's incorrectly! Anyhoo, take a listen to this one. Ye shan't be dis'appointed! Bleep, bloop... bloop, bleep.
Instruments: Guitar, Bass, Drums, EP, Synths

This is like... the ultimate in high-class non-offensive music. You can have this going at the hippest highest-class hotel in the world, and it'll feel at home. You can also put in less-classy places to make them feel classier! Like the opium den you built in your garage, or that tiny closet at your office where lunch-room recyclables go to get sticky and smell bad. I mean seriously... I don't think they ALL started out sticky. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.

Quite a broad piece. Could be used for corporate films of intricate industrial processes, or a flashback scene to the time at the lake a few summers ago. Maybe good background to your cousin's magic show at the last family reunion. Or a film where you do "industrial processes" at the "lake" with your "cousin". It is really quite versatile!

Starts thin and explodes suddenly and massively around the 44-second mark. The uncompressed download also comes with a cut where it starts out big. I'm assuming it will be used for the outro parts of videos. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
Feel: Eerie, Mysterious, Driving
You want adventure? You want a princess? You're not getting the princess, buddy... but Adventure Awaits in "Overworld"! How much adventure? A statistically significant amount. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 18ppm... (or roughly 18 milligrams per liter... the density of adventure is unusually high, and in some cases even at 18ppm you will get a weight closer to 19mg/L.) Download comes with a faster version, a SUPER faster version, and a slower version without percussion for lazy title screens and whatnot. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

Feel: Action, Bouncy, Driving
Your girlfriend has be kidnapped by ninja! Stage 1: Desert. Avoid the flaming balls and shoot cyborg ninja in the eye to win round. Retro-gaming circa 1988. I was seriously considering naming this piece "Flaming Balls" as that would also have been appropriate. Cyborg ninjas are just a little more '1988' to me. Need 10 hours of this? Loop it!

This is a piece of music classified as "GNDN". Goes Nowhere. Does Nothing. It sort of sits there and just repeats mild variants. There isn't even an ending. Yet, this was all on purpose. This piece was designed for keeping energy in news reports or review segments where there is a lot of talking. There is no end so it is easy to loop to any length. There will come a time in your editing career where you will need this piece. Best to download it now. You can download this in uncompressed format here.

Only 6 monophonic synths and a drum set in this entire, extremely peppy, undeniably enthusiastic, off-kilter, oddly satisfying electronic piece! Even at that, it gets pretty dense near the end.
Try this one! You'll like it! (you'll probably like it... figure about 90 percent guaranteed to like this piece by the end.) The uncompressed download comes with a mix done using electronic drums. It has a very different and more machine-like feel. Chances you'll like that one are lower... but it is totally usable for a harsher feel. You can download this in uncompressed format here.
