"Bytebeat was an interesting experiment this time around. Uh, had a lot of surprises, aaaaand people, man, making...software........." - puke7
on the Spring Tracks IV resluts stream

Bytebeat was invented by Viznut of PWP fame in September of 2011. The core concept is applying an algorithm to t where t equals the number of steps in time based on the chosen sample rate. The output is 8-bit and values above 255 are wrapped. Because of the nature of this format it may be quite difficult to generate something both pleasant and unique. ;)
