Classic Chiptune Synth

Retro Boy is a subtractive chiptune synth/emulator. Chiptune, also known as 8-bit music is audio synthesized by the sound chip of computers, video game systems, and most older handheld gaming devices. Retro Boy features a single oscillator that has seven waveshapes: 12.5% pulse, 25% pulse, square, saw, triangle, sine, and noise. It also features a simple envelope, decimation, and vibrato.

Simple Lightweight Design

Due to the simplicity of the design, Retro Boy doesn’t have much of an impact on most modern day CPUs. This is mostly due to the fact that it’s single oscillator synth with a 4 voice max polyphony, all DSP is optimized, and has lightweight HQ graphics.
