Sono Elements RetroByts features the sound of the NES video game console and the C64 8-bit computer. Both machines had a huge influence on the 80s culture and are classics of the chiptune music scene. Included in RetroByts are all the NES and C64 basic waveforms plus a collection of retro video game consoles sounds.

RetroByts combines these chiptune sounds with the architecture of a basic organ. Simple in design, RetroByts makes it easy and fast to create powerful 8-bit sounds using very little CPU.


  • 30 8-bit waveforms.
  • Amplitude ADSR.
  • Reverb, filter and sub effects.
  • 4-octaves tranposer.
  • Comes as a VST & AU instrument for macOS & Windows 7, 8, 10.
