Get Bit is constructed as both a recognition of the classic chiptune artists of Ye Olde Modscene, those who utilize the actual physical hardware of various soundchips to produce music, and a sort of personal learning experience in the art of limitation. No after-modulation save volume control and panning has been added to the tracks; each and every sound is exactly as produced by the VST's chip synthesis. No mastering, echo, doubling, or any of the like has been achieved through added after-effects, to as closely simulate the idea of having multiple pieces of hardware wired to a single master soundboard as possible.

The first nine songs are constructed each using a single "chip", or VST instrument model, though multi-layered; songs ten, eleven and twelve are dual-chip; and song thirteen culminates in a three-chip symphony.

All songs are constructed entirely with the free VSTs listed and linked below. The 1.1 version of NesVST was used because 1.2 hadn't come out when I started the album, and part of how several songs function is due to minor errors in the 1.1 version of the VST which would take an extensive amount of re-working to duplicate in 1.2.

The tracks are 320kbps mp3 files; the Full Album file contains all thirteen tracks in a handy zip and folder, otherwise identical to the individual track downloads. If there's enough clamor for it, I'll release a full lossless .wav version here as well.
