If you where observant looking at the video on the previous post you saw “nanoloop” on the T-shirt on the guy using the Gameboy. Now, nanoloop is not only for Gameboy but also for iPhone. It’s a really nice little Tracker like sequencers with it’s build in FM-synth and sampler. As the sound quality from the iPhone is really good nanoloop benefits from that to, compared to the Gameboy sound card. But I guess you could argue that the lack of sound quality is a feature. Anyway once you learned your way around you can quickly come up with some grooves/patterns. And the sequence those patterns into a song just like you do in any Tracker.

Canadian video game programmer and synth musician Brad Smith has with his Moon8 project created a note-by-note cover version of the whole album in an 8-bit NES video game style.
