Anyone listen to C64/SID chip music for inspiration? The standard seems to be so much higher than in chip music as a whole. Lots of lessons to be learned from the demoscene as well as commercial game soundtracks.
Some of the music is pretty incredible - much of Ed Svärd’s work in particular doesn’t even sound like it should have come from a SID chip.
Also, many of the techniques translate directly over to Elektron machines. The SID Machine for sure but also the Monomachine with its SID emulation, and I haven’t used the A4 but I’m sure much of it applies there as well.
