I hate faux, "8bit chiptune", music. These types of songs try to take advantage of people's nostalgia for old video game music. The people who makes this stuff think that they don't need to put in any effort if it's just beeps and boops. What they're either forgetting or ignoring is that that composers put in extra effort to make the most out of narrow technical limitations. This stuff not only doesn't even stay within the boundaries of those technical limitations, but they don't so much as make an effort to be listenable.

I think this is an extremely important point. I remember reading articles about composers for the original nintendo and how they would have to push the chip to the absolute limit, and find all sorts of hack to get the sounds that they needed. I also used to own a nanoloop and working within the limitations of that could be quite challenging.

I listened to the second link in your post (pasted below for reference) and while some of the harmonies and melodies seemed to be pretty representative of 8 bit video game styles, the first thing I heard was a modulating acid bassline that would never have been possible on an 8 bit chip.

Thanks for the response. Yu-No came out in 1996 and the pc98 itself came out in 1982, before even the Famicom, and used the Yamaha YM2608 chip. I know very little about sound engineering, but here's the Wikipedia page for it.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamaha_YM2608
I'm pretty sure that the system is considered 16/32 bit. Anyway, it still shows the massive difference in effort between what people produced back then and modern, "retro", music, which also often doesn't fit 8-bit parameters. The third link, which was for the pc-88, is probably closer to mark when it comes to comparable technical limitations.

Bubblegum-pop is the worst thing that has ever happened to music.

Why dont you own an arranger keyboard?
You could literally be writing a song an hour in any style you want.

Dont tell me that its because "muh originality and artistic integrity." Every genre is made out of idioms and all this does is play those idioms in along with your melodies and harmonies.

Oh yeah, legally buying a DAW would be a nice addition lol.

Dolores O’Riordan, the lead singer of the Irish rock band the Cranberries, died on Monday in London. She was 46.

Her death was announced by her publicist, who did not specify the cause.

“Irish and international singer Dolores O’Riordan has died suddenly in London today,” Lindsey Holmes, the publicist, said in an emailed statement, adding that Ms. O’Riordan had been in London for a recording session.

The statement said that family members are “devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”

A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police said on Monday that the police were called to a Park Lane hotel in Westminster at about 9:05 a.m., and that Ms. O’Riordan was pronounced dead at the scene. Her death is being treated as “unexplained,” the spokeswoman said.

Ms. O’Riordan wrote lyrics and often music for the Cranberries’ 1990s hits, including “Linger” (which remained on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for 24 weeks) and “Dreams,” which proclaimed both vulnerability and steadfastness. She was the sole writer of the noisier, angrier “Zombie,” a response to an Irish Republican Army terrorist bombing in 1993.
