I few months ago I found a great program for creating techno. It’s called Renoise and you can download it for free for Window, Mac, and Linux. I haven’t had much time use the software but, what I have seen looks amazing. I was able to load in sounds and beats from other software that I own and transform the sounds using filters and other tools available in Renoise. This is a nice program and I am happy to see that it is available on Linux too. It dosen’t look like this program is opensource but, it appears to have a community that contributes to the program.

Check out the site at http://www.renoise.com

Here is a video I found on Youtube about making trance in Renoise.

There is also a filter that would be great for making 8bit techno.

If you like 8bit music or techno you should take a look at 8bitPeoples.com. I never really paid attention to any of the music from the old games I used to play. 8bitPeoples is mashing everything up using the old game sounds to make some fun strange music.

Here are a few of the songs I liked:
On Target
Boss Man
MEGAblaST
moduless

Fun times…
