    4. Bosca Ceoil is all about looping, and designed that way at its heart. Songs are built up from lots of tiny 16 note patterns – the intended workflow is that you loop over these single patterns until you have something you like, then you start making variations.

      It's a really easy-to-learn music composer, and you'll get used really quick to the 16-bit sounds. It has the full General Midi soundfont, and is beginner-friendly. And best of all, it's completely free.
