Hey there and welcome to the forums. Chiptunes are very easy to do as the sounds are just raw synth tones with slight changes to the envelope and filters.  So find the raw square, saw, triangle waves and tweak them to your liking. Then use the step sequencer and arpeggiator to animate the sounds. You will also find a ton of 8 bitish drum samples in there you'll be able to put to good use in your music.  


For inspiration, check out this video... All the music was made on the P1 (expect the credit music, that's an SA keyboard demo!)
