I didn't use a BFO in this tune. All my tunes this year are all Microkorg. (Next year I'm using all my synths, including my new Micron.)

I give tunes whatever name occurs to me as they are taking shape or when they are finished.

A BFO, beat frequency oscillator, is the knob on a communications receiver (ham shortwave receiver) that allows you to hear sideband audio and to put audible tones on carrier wave morse code. The first electronic music I ever made was by manipulating the BFO on morse rhythms to make melodies. Turning the knob raised and lowered the pitch of the dits and dahs. I was about eight years old so this must have been around 1962.

Yes, I'm old. So bite me.

Ow! Hey! I meant that figuratively.
