Number 1 Chiptune Musician in the World

Have come to the conclusion that LHS is the Number 1 Chiptune Musician in the World. Emotional melodies and sounds just make so many of his tunes a joy to listen to. I have never heard a Chiptune Musician so insanely good as LHS, just pure gold to the ears.

Has to be Archon for me too, outstanding chiptunes he made. Also you have to say 4-Mat since he probably wrote 2 or 3 of the best 10 chiptunes on the Amiga...

4-Mat for me.

Sure I liked some of Archons stuff, just like E-Max's stuff, but 4-Mat was consistent for such a long time, and then when he branched out onto doing his chip stuff on PC, well, Broken Heart is a masterpiece.

As music is very subjective, and everyone has different taste, I think best is in the ear of the beholder as it were....Here are some personal favourites:

I never owned a C64, but when I borrowed a mates for a few weeks, this blew me away. Has to be amongst the best game soundtracks ever IMO, also by Ben Dalglish:

Probably one of the best tunes to ever originate from the speaker of a BBC B, done by Martin Galway I believe:

Hated the game, but this is a great tune care of Jonathan Dunn:

On the Amiga, and "16bit" systems generally this game's soundtrack is hard to beat IMO, you all know who did this one.....:

Enjoy :-)

I'd find it hard to choose one, but if I could choose three I'd say TDK, emax, and Dezecrator (his tunes seem to get very little recognition, unfortunately. Check out the Classic intros for Spiderman and Time Soldiers).

Would have to be Holt Hein on the C64 for me. Around 2006 he just couldn't put a foot wrong.

His pinnacle for me is Armalyte Revisited:

Yeah, that the one :-) Although apparently the version used in the advert is from the Gameboy version of the game.

Musical taste is such a subjective thing. Surely "technical mastery of their instrument" is the only way to judge who should qualify to rank among the "BEST" chiptune musicians? If that's the criteria, Tim Follin wins hands down.

Never mind coaxing this from a Megadrive/Genesis:

What sort of witchcraft did he employ in order to make a ZX Spectrum do this:

[ Show youtube player ]

Arguably, neither of those are among his best compositions, but you have to admire the effort and determination involved in realising the impossible. On the Amiga, Tim's 1988-vintage contributions to Bionic Commando and LED Storm are still astonishing and timeless.

I never cared for those jolly pseudo "chip tunes" made using the 4-Matt method, synonymous with 00's PC cracks/keygens, but 4-Matt's original Amiga track showcasing this new concept was a game-changer, sending musicians like me on a quest to find out how it was done:

For me personally, restricting things to the Amiga, I don't think anyone ever surpassed these two tracks, both from 1989. Step forward Felix Schmidt and Paul van der Valk:

Non-Amiga-wise, Chipzel's Gameboy tunes for the Super Hexagon soundtrack are very good

I always felt 4-Mat made better music when he wasn't making chip tunes. Such as this disk, which collects some of his very best work togethor:
