Plugins (VST, AU, RTAS) for 8-bit sound

To use these virtual 8-bit sound synthesizers and effects, you need a plugin host like FL Studio, Renoise or others... For info, SAVIhost is a good free standalone VST plugin host for Windows. Perfect to test VST plugins !

ChipArp MIDI [windows, VST] by Shiru

ChipArp MIDIA GUI-less MIDI processing plugin that turns full chords into proper chiptune arpeggios using pitch bend messages. Requires target synth plugin to support pitch bend depth of at least 12 semitones up/down, and instant response to the pitch bend changes (without smoothing), so it does not work with any VSTi. Confirmed to work well with 1bitstudio, VST2413, and VT2i plugins.
