Soundfly’s Chiptune Crash Course

Soundfly has several music education courses, released on the monthly basis. The most recent of which is a Chiptune Crash Course taught by Philadelphia’s one and only Chipocrite (aka Paul Weinstein) and promises to “uncover how to make chiptune music using a Game Boy or your computer. Popularized by such artists as Anamanaguchi and Beck, chiptune music is a fast growing genre” according to Soundfly‘s Creative Assets Director Jeremy Young.

The course describes how students will be “introduced to the hardware, how it works, and how to set up a piece of software called LSDJ to start making complex music right away.”


The online music education hub of soundfly hopes to teach how to create chiptune music, make and program a version of the C Major scale, and then tackle arrangement using four channels. The course is mobile-compatible and can be accessed for free by anyone anywhere in the world. The course uses “Little Sound Dj” (LSDJ) to create music.
