not entirely sure how to feel about two formats in a single format challenge. gonna update you during the month if my brain is able to handle it at some point

Aaaaaa finally a new major =) now let's see what format it is this time, it can't possibly be any worse than Channel F, now let me just take a sip of my tea while reading the format.

*SPLOOOUUURRRTTSS* OOOH BOB SAGET!!!

guess it's about time I get round to one of these monthly things. I think I said in my entry page that the format was non-size limited bytebeat but I'm perfectly okay with both, gonna be interesting to see how it divides up the entries

for non 1k-bytebeat gonna see if I can come up with better percussive models, and maybe do something else instead of all the time phase-modulation :p

they're both bytebeat.. that's one thing but there are actually two thing but they are the same but also not quite!!

did you know that the background image is based on this bytebeat: t 10 >> 42 * t *

i think?

@AArt1256 if you're talking about the cover art background image, it was generated with a simple js script I wrote and html canvas

the actual bytebeat functions for the rgb channels that were used to generate the image are:::

red:
((t / 100) >> (t / 10)) + (((t / 200) & 205) | (t / 20000));
green:
((t / 100) >> (t / 10)) + (((t / 200) & 205) | (t / 30000));
blue:
((t / 100) >> (t / 10)) + (((t / 200) & 205) | (t / 40000));

I wouldn't be able to make an image out of the function you provided since it's not a valid [infix] expression :p (now that I'm thinking about it, is this glitch or rpn?)

you can see a live version here (warning quick flashing lights!!!):::

(yeah that's base64 encoded js code there lol, not pretty but it seems to work)

Hey all, snooping around teh interwebs I uncovered this very well constructed guide to the writing of the Bytebeats:

https://nightmachines.tv/downloads/Bytebeats_Beginners_Guide_TTNM_v1-5.pdf

Or, you know, you can input random doo dahs and get a good boop beep going!

i know floatbeat isn't allowed but i like this floatbeat 4*sin(.00002*t)*sin(sin(t*.05)*.04*(sin(t*.02)+1))

I came up with a really simple waveshape synth you can use in your bytebeats that's easy to tune and has some interesting sounds.

here's an animation which shows how the waveshaping works: https://imgur.com/a/g4oom66

here's a simple example:
https://greggman.com/downloads/examples/html5bytebeat/html5bytebeat.html#t=0&e=0&s=8000&bb=5d000001003f0000000000000000331c88cecb12efcc3889412bde1f067ff0035029494ee553cf5acbe4cd41166af62e2d43e87b1fd2c980ccbf84137fd2946680075b65de2a3f5ca3b6a725f7fffcd9d780

for high values of the wave variable it sounds more squelchy, and you could use really really high values of wave for an interesting noise generator for hi-hats or other percussive things if you're sick of the random() white noise generator

you could even use a function to modulate the wave parameter there :p

can we submit stuff like this? or where should we submit? https://pastebin.com/raw/HbL3f3Hb (it's 2kb... :S - for sdlBasic running on GNU/Linux, having vgmtools installed )

if it's a generative vgm file like I think it is then you can submit to a chip format if the vgm is specifically for that one system's chip only (and vgm is a valid file for that format). for example the sn7 in the sms. or allgear/wildchip

bytebeat1k got removed to make it a REAL single format challenge and because of the lack of entries so far!
if u started an entry for it, you can keep it until winter chip. someone (beard7) told me, we will have byte1k in there !

kleeder: the initial idea of bytebeat was random sounds out of simple math equations but some people write full music engines in code form

opm: lol the format sounds like if you gave me a bunch of sticks of wood, and told me to build a house
Im sure someone can do it but not me xDDDD

I can't submit more than just one entry so here's another bytebeat that's cool:

play at 32KHz or 44KHz since they both sound cool

t/4&t/4 >>6 | t/4 >> 8

My sincere apologies for making you all listen to like 8 minutes of my entry on the stream.

I don't actually know how long it takes to loop so I just recorded it running until I got bored, I didn't know you were going to run the whole thing on stream! :P

(Maybe I'll make the next one half an hour >:D )
