​Cosmic Connections Tunes:

Full disclaimer, I am not a well seasoned composer, but these were fun little loop able tunes I made on a site called BeepBox.

To talk a little bit about BeepBox, it is a free to use and make site, with four different slots to use their already programmed instruments and sounds; of which you can play with the settings for, like pitch, fades, ect. It takes a little bit of messing around to get the handle on it, you can even upload your own instruments and it is a free source.

Even when my computer randomly restarted the link for the project I was working for on the browser was still there, you can even download it and use the program on your computer, so that's neat.  There's specifically a fun part about BeepBox where the last available section for your arsenal of instrument measures is where you can play with some chiptune. Chiptune is basically an 8-Bit style of synthetic sounds more popularly used in vintage games.

When making the tunes, jams, bops, ect, I was going for something cutesy and bopy with a little bit of a sci-fi twist. My favorite is Space Town in Orbit or Asteroid March out of the small bunch I made. It took some time to pick up on what kind of tunes I wanted, but I think it worked out just fine.

Personally I give the program a thumbs up and implore people to donate to the creators, because it is a free to use program and there is a lot you can do with it.

Link to my soundcloud is hereas well if you prefer to listen from there.

You can play with Beepbox here.

Let me know what you guys think about Beepbox or the tunes I made from it <3

Brief edit: 

I forgot to mention this, but because I'm using Tyranobuilder the only issue I had was the file formatting. You can only download tracks off of BeepBox as a .wav, .mid and a .json, I suppose it's so you can re-upload it onto the site if you wanted to edit a track. I have to take the files and convert them to an .ogg for Tyranobuilder so I'm leaving a link to the converter I used here, it worked just fine and none of my tracks got messed with at all and it can also convert files to MP3.
