What is it about?

Moby Chip is a four track, easy to use, chiptune, music sequencer. It was designed to recreate that old-school 8-bit video game sound. Each track is monophonic and generates sound from a user definable, 4-bit waveform, with 32 samples, or random pitched noise for drums and sound effects. The wavetable oscillators are bandlimited, using a proprietary algorithm, calculated in real time, and modeled somewhat after the original GameBoy’s wavetable channel.

App Store Description

Moby Chip is a four track, easy to use, chiptune, music sequencer. It was designed to recreate that old-school 8-bit video game sound. Each track is monophonic and generates sound from a user definable, 4-bit waveform, with 32 samples, or random pitched noise for drums and sound effects. The wavetable oscillators are bandlimited, using a proprietary algorithm, calculated in real time, and modeled somewhat after the original GameBoy’s wavetable channel.

Moby Chip was design with professionals in mind. It’s great for creating chiptune songs or sound effects. It has sample based timing with accurate tempos. Export options include full song or phrase with selectable tracks and three file formats: wav, aif, caf. Exported audio files are ready to use without editing. Drop them into your favorite App such as Ableton Live, Apple Logic Pro X, or use them in a video game. These files are exported to the Apple Files App in the “On My iPad” location in the Moby Chip folder.

Moby Chip can be played live. Plunk out a tune on the piano/stylo onscreen keyboard with accompanying music provided by the Notes Editor Grid (main screen) or the Song Editor. And like the music trackers of old, each note of each track can be individually edited. The instrument, octave, volume, glide (portamento), pan (including old-school delay stereo effect), arpeggiated chords, and trill effects, can all be adjusted per note. And one of my favorites, the Notes Editor supports triplets.

You can find in-depth information in the included manual. But don’t let that keep you from jumping in and trying it out. Also, eight song examples are included in the app to learn from. Have a whale of a time!
