Hey all, I'm new to the forum. This is my first post after a couple of weeks lurking/reading/absorbing around this great resource and community. I'm sure I'll post something about my Lunetta experiments soon enough, but for now I was wondering whether anyone here had come across another logic/waverform-based type of music called bytebeats. There is a good introduction here:

http://canonical.org/~kragen/bytebeat/

a lot of Lunetta-like sounds coming from simple one-liners: I'm sure a lot of you will appreciate the raw sound that results. Anyone played around with this stuff? There are some tools linked from that page. I'm sticking to our beloved CMOS hardware for the time being, but this is definitely on the todo.

Wow trav, you really joined our community with a splash! That bytebeat stuff rocks! I love it! I'm going to write a bytebeat ChucK program right now and restrict it to CMOS implementable form. Let's see, how would that go?

Well, t is time, a counter in digital, so I'll use a CD4040 12 bit binary counter for t. To shift I'll simply pick off upper or lower bits, then perform logic operations on those bits. Hmmm could get big in CMOS. Then for multiplying or dividing, if we restrict that to binary numbers that becomes a shift also. huh, interesting.

I'll post results and code if i get any success tonight.

Welcome aboard trav, very inspiring post.

Les

I would be VERY interested in knowing a LOT more about the Arduino side of this.

Do you have any code / info ?

Too. Much. Fun.

That killed about an hour and I haven't even begun.

Here is a ChucK program that explores bytebeats. Rather than simulate one cool example, i looped through many examples. just let it play in the background and you will hear some cool struff.

this is addictive!

JingleJoe, I like the cool filter sounds you got out of that

Les, you got right to the nuts and bolts of it, makes me want to learn chuck. Lots of interesting mathematical series in here.

wahoo!! this is kinda boss.

im no mathematician so i dont really understand it, but i do like the patterns!

changing last number from 1-20 gives some cool visuals.

Just to let everyone know, I run a company called SNAZZY FX. This spring I relesed a product called the ARDCORE. Long story short, the ardcore lets you load up Arduino programs and use it in your modular.

I made an ENTIRE FOLDER of BYTEBEAT programs which you can edit, copy, etc
and they all run in the modular world.

there are also like 40 other modular synth oriented programs which come with it.

normally I wouldnt promote stuff on here but when I released the Ardcore, everyone wondered what the folder called BYTEBEAT was.

they sure are fun and they work really well in (arduino) C.

thanks!


more info on the Ardcore here:
