Most of the DAW interfaces often seem overcomplicated, and they only tend to get more and more bloated over time. Many of them are commercial, proprietary-licensed and almost none of them support all major operating systems at the same time.
Helio is an attempt to rethink a music sequencer to create a tool that feels right.
It aims to be a modern music creation software, featuring linear-based/pattern-based sequencer with clean UI, integrated version control for synchronizing project between devices, microtonal temperaments support, small portable builds and more; mainly targeted at hobbyist composers, game developers and indie artists.
Blackle Mori's online drumkit databender. Play around with the settings until you come up with a sample or pattern that you like and play it. Works a little bit like a tracker in that you can build pretty complex patterns - not just drum lines, probably entire songs.

An archive of chiptunes ripped from keygen software, cracks, game trainers, demos, and intros. Sometimes this music is better than that of the game itself.
Pixitracker is a simple, pixel-based sample editor and chiptune tracker that's designed to be fun to play with, so it doesn't have the hardcore (and intimidating, I'll admit) tracker interface. Pixel-based means that you specify notes and patterns by turning dots on and off by clicking on them. Designed so you can just mess around with it. Record patterns, make new samples and export them as .wav files, record sounds. MIDI aware so you can plug your favorite MIDI device in and use that as the UI. Supports multiple audio drivers, too. There are versions for Apple iOS, Android, Windows, OSX, and Linux. Samples are delineated with Space Invaders-style sprites so you can tell them apart.
BeepBox is an online chiptune tracker written in flash. You can interactively edit patterns or enter single notes on a piano style keyboard. It makes it very easy to compose music - it manages scales, keys, tempo, and rhythm for you. It also has a waveform editor with which you can define new instruments. Download your work as .wav files. Seems to use Amiga .mod style patterns. You can also download the applet to open later in a web browser or clone the sourcecode (https://bitbucket.org/shaktool/beepbox) if you want to tinker with it or incorporate it into your own work.
Software for composing music on a Linux box. Seems to have a tracker like interface. MIDI enabled. Seems to have a synthesis feature in addition to using samples. Can consolidate sequences into single objects. Embedded emulation of some of the greats, from the 303 and 803 to the 6581.
