CHIPSHOP: Hacking GameBoys and Composing Music with Little Sound DJ
Chiptune, also known as chip music or 8-bit music, is synthesized electronic music produced by the sound chips of vintage computers, video game consoles, and arcade machines, as well as with other methods such as emulation.  In this two-part workshop, make your own Chiptune hardware and music.

In Part 1, learn how to hardware hack a GameBoy and install a backlight; then bore and solder a new ProSound output so that your 1989 Digital Audio Workstation / video game system can push big beats and low bass waves.

In Part 2, learn Little Sound DJ, the powerhouse music tracker that many Chiptune artists use worldwide. Jump from screen to screen building chains, phrases, instruments, program chords, effects, and waveforms using LSDJ's unique programming system.  You will exclaim "Now you're playing with power!"

MATERIALS INCLUDED IN WORKSHOP FEE

- GameBoy with Prosound/Backlight Kit

- USB-Rewritable GameBoy cartridge, with Little Sound DJ software installed
