Youdo - Destination (Remastered)

Today's 32-bit daily is... Errrr...

This song is emblematic of everything people don't like about using modern software (in this case FL Studio, but sometimes Reason, Logic, Garage Band, etc.) to make chiptunes. Loads of filters, after effects, percussion and background tracks that sound like "normal" electronica, sidechaining to a degree simply not possible with old-school hardware, and a general feel that's polished past the point of sterility. Yes, this is a FL Studio song all right. The only question that remains is this: Do you like it?

Get it!


  1. it's not too bad, but it pales in comparison to the older-sounding stuff. All those filters and stuff just complicate it too much.

  2. I like it enough for what it is. It's NOT chiptune, just a song that uses 8-bit sounds. Would make a pretty good chiptune though, melody is nice.

  3. i have nothing against using chiptune sounds in modern software. i do prefer the old stuff, but it doesn't mean everything else is trash. i actually can't compare the two styles and i choose to look at it as two different genres. btw this song is cool.

  4. Song is aiiiight. I don't mind that the song is a million bit, but I'm not particularly a fan of it after some of the epic picks that have been happening lately.
