I'm relatively new to Ubuntu, I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 I create music from time to time and I'm looking for a good chiptune program, be it a tracker or some other type of composition program. Is there any program that anybody could point out?

Cheers! Arni Geir


This is in no way my area of expertise, but from what I have seen this is the most up to date guide (it is FAR too much to cover here),but, it uses many things like wine and KX repos. Although the guide is well written and even has some videos.

If you understand the kind of programs you are using ( I did not) and want to get running right away try this one.

wget www.warmplace.ru/soft/sunvox/sunvox-1.9.zip

Find sunvox-1.9.zip in your home folder extract it and click the right version you need.

You mention trackers and I see milky tracker getting a lot of love it is based on Fast Tracker 2

For 32 bit

wget cz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/m/milkytracker/milkytracker_0.90.85+dfsg-2.2_i386.deb

For 64bit

wget cz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/m/milkytracker/milkytracker_0.90.85+dfsg-2.2_amd64.deb

Or manually here

There debs so use your preferred install method or just click them.

To round it out you can see this article for more Linux chip tune programs.
