https://boscaceoil.net/ Bosca Ceoil is completely free, impressively easy-to-use music-making software intended for making midi music files similar to the tracks used in classic 16-bit games. The sound banks are large, the system is pretty well streamlined, the power is yours, PLAY WITH MEEEE. Here's a track I spent an hour or two tooling around with this morning to give you an impression of what I've figured out so far. It's a potential theme for a character of mine and nowhere near done but I'm just excited ha ha ha. The differences between the .mid and the .wav export files are actually massive, which is the nature of .mid files; I uploaded the .wav file because it's how it sounds in the program anyway and it's easier to make the internet take it. I like the sound bank for the flutes on the .mid file more but it didn't take the drums right weirdly, I'll have to look into that. Edit::: Here's the same track, but finished, because I focused weirdly hard on this. Not a masterpiece but like. Fun.
