Yes, there's at least 2, and perhaps more. There's Nerd Tracker 2, which is written in DOS, and then there's FamiTracker. I suggest you check out http://www.nullsleep.com/utilities.php to see some very useful utilities for both GB and NES music creation. I haven't used any of those tools myself, but I've heard the results of people who have. They've made some really cool chip tunes with those programs! Hope that helps. Mouser X out.

Well, my aim was to make like whole songs using one of these programs and stuff. I've been messing around with Famitracker and that's working decently, so I think I've found what I'm looking for, although I didn't know there was such a community for original NES music.

They are crappy sample-based plugins made with SynthEdit which kind of sucks.

The way I see it, it's Japan with the NSF, and Europe with the SID. Notice a lot of artists on KWED are european, like Machinae Supremacy and stuff :3

I'm looking to make .sid files also, I have a C64 emulator but I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO :(
