if you did that note for note, you definetly have an excellent understanding of complex rythmes other wise copying and pasting a loop does not constitute as composition

Ahem. allow me to clarify.

Nanoloop.de

Nanoloop is a synthesizer / sequencer for the Nintendo Game Boy systems. Stored on a normal game cartridge, it allows to produce nice electronic music without further hardware, using headphones or an external amplifier (home stereo, active speakers, etc) as sound output.

I personally use this:
Wayfar.net

...I literally have a hacked Nintendo in my bedroom and can access the sound chip, which has 5 not polyphony (2 pulse waves, triangle track, noise and sample track)

Copying and pasting loops and and of itself does not make for an interesting composition; however, can be a useful element when achieving a sonic goal.

I personally have never use a 'loop'. I have edited a .rex file, and found that to be interesting, but ultimately find more joy in creating my own drumparts. I do ;however, defend those who do use loops. Whatever helps you achieve your compositional goals is legitimate in my book, regardless of my personal compositional bias.

And for the music poster. I was asking mainly what you used to achieve your sonic palette. As i mentioned, I personally use an actual nintendo for 8 bit palettes, and many of my friends use nanoloops (which is neither nano nor a loop!!). did oyu design the sounds yourself? Are you triggering a vintage synth via midi? Did you find a useful 8-bit sound package for Reason (the seemingly preferred compositional program on these forums)?

In case anyone is curious as to what the wayfar cartridge is sonically capable of, I posted a track called "God In My Automatic Vaccuum" after the previous post to show what it can do. The Nintendo is featured prominently, and I hope those seeking to further their 8-bit vocabulary check it out.

Also, this is great:
Sidstation.com

Its based on the old commadore 64 MOS6581 soundchip. A friend of mine had it and it sounds absolutely great. A lot of your sounds could have come right off this thing!

Ok! I am done barfing 8-bit sound trivia all over your piece's thread, lol! I found your piece to be very interesting, and I enjoyed listening to it. I hope you , and anyone reading the thread finds the aforementioned links interesting, and maybe they will follow them and expand their sound palette!
