TrueStar’s last show before a two week hiatus for finals. Don’t worry, she survived. Apologies to the podcast listeners for posting this so late!
Finally, a Noise Channel episode that TrueStar can archive! Sorry we’ve been podcast silent for the past few weeks. We don’t usually archive listening parties and due to the severe stream issues during the NoiseChan album show, nothing was recorded.
So here you are, an episode that blends new music with old! TrueStar also talks about the Ultimate Chiptune Weekend Kickstarter. Check it out and help them reach their goal!
PS: NoiseChan & Nugget: Adventures in Chiptunes has raised $2,091 for the Child’s Play charity since its release date. Thank you everyone!
It’s finally here! After over a year of planning and organizing, the Noise Channel compilation album is finally available to all. All profit made from album sales will go to the Child’s Play charity organization, so be sure to throw a few dollars at it! The album is titled NoiseChan & Nugget: Adventures in Chiptunes and is hosted by Ubiktune.
Thank you to everyone who helped contribute to this project. TrueStar is pretty good at organizing, but the artists’ creativity is what really makes this album so special.
Get it here!
Do you like chiptunes AND donating to charity? Starting at midnight PDT, the Chiptunes + Charity Groupee bundle will be available to the public! 20% of all sales will go to the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
You’ll get 80+ songs in this bundle. Expect tracksfrom Superpowerless, C-Jeff, Bubu, Danimal Cannon, Maxo, J. Arthur Keenes Band, and Yogurtbox. There is even a chance to win your very own personal theme composed by Yogurtbox! The album is ‘pay what you want’ with a minimum of only $1.
The only catch is that the bundle is available for one week only!
Check out the video and be sure to get some great chiptunes and donate to a great charity.
Noise Channel’s compilation album – Noisechan & Nugget: Adventures in Chiptunes – will be released on April 11th. We are celebrating with our own listening party right before the album is released.
Until then, here is a neat promo video to hold you over!
Oh, and here are the first two anagram clues to the artist and track names on the album.
1. Henchman Novelties Tire – Armed Moneys Volts (first part is the artist and track name, second part is the alternate track name)
2. Rams Jet Qi Mop
TrueStar discovers that there is a method to rip music from YouTube videos. She’s very behind the times. Anyway she takes advantage of this newly discovered technology to rip mp3s of chiptunes she couldn’t otherwise find.
In the meantime, there is debate about the song Sexual Healing and it it mentions masturbation and Nugget steals TrueStar’s pita bread.
This week, TrueStar returns to a regular schedule to bring you a variety of chiptunes for every occasion. She talks a bit more about the upcoming Noise Channel album and tells the story of how she became ‘Miss Cream’. Also, Happy Pi Day Everyone!
A special thank you to the GRL siblings who tuned into the show.

Nugget’s 5th birthday is April 13th and he has been working very hard to procure the best chiptune artists around for a Noise Channel chiptune compilation album! After many months of working on it, it’s finally ready for the public.
On April 11th, ‘Noisechan & Nugget: Adventures in Chiptunes’ will be released on Ubiktune. It will be made available on Bandcamp as ‘pay what you want’. However, all money (minus the generously discounted 10% fee for Bandcamp) will go directly to the Child’s Play Charity.
To celebrate, TrueStar will be hosting a pre-release party for the album. In typical Noise Channel tradition, the listeners will get to listen to the album before it goes on sale. There is a very likely chance that many artists from the album will be in the chat and talking with the listeners!
Ah, yes about the artists. It’s TOP SECRET! You won’t know until the album’s release, unless you’re really clever! Trust me, Nugget is very well connected in the chiptune scene and he has secured the finest artists around! Join the Facebook event to keep up to date on artist clues.
Hope to see you there!
Another happy Thursday on Noise Channel with TrueStar & Nugget. This week she shares new music and track from OCT vol. 3. She also utterly fails at names.
Yes, this show was longer than the twenty minutes I said it would be on Twitter. I’m not sorry.
The Valentine’s Day Special is back by popular demand. Noise Channel listeners dedicate their favorite chiptune songs to their loved ones. Nugget sends out all of his love to the world and demonstrates his manly puggle-ness.
Everyone here at Noise Channel wishes you a happy Valentine’s Day!
