I'd like to start making music on the MSX1 with the build in sound chip with the help of a composer application. PSG Tracker seems to be a good choice, but I cannot find any manual or tutorial on how to use it. E.g. I cannot figure out how to make patterns and how to compose the patterns into a song. And is there a way to export the song to basic or asm?

treblig, do you have the replayer and do you know how it works? I could help you out with that...

There are other options based on PC such as Vortex Tracker II and Arkos Tracker 2.

If you're okay with composing music on a modern computer in stead of the MSX: I personally chose Arkos Tracker 2 because it's cross platform (I'm on a Mac, most trackers are for Windows), and because it's pretty well documented and simple to use. It also comes with a bunch of replayers, also for Z80 (which may need some work depending on the music). But from a user perspective I really like it.

And if you want to compose on MSX but it doesn’t necessarily need to be MSX1, consider TriloTracker.

And although you are specifically saying you want to compose for the PSG on an MSX1, maybe you want to compose for OPLL on a SG-1000 Mark III computer. Then better use deflemask

:P :P
