I meant yeah, you said you write almost all the synths in code but it still doesn't change the fact that it's borderline invalid. Your code took very long to render and not able to play in real time without reducing the sample rate to like 32kHz even on new PCs.

Ok so apparently you can't actually update descriptions after the battle ends (I could've sworn you could).


This is a C program that generates music. HOW TO RUN:



Install MinGW
Type the following in cmd:

gcc c_file.c -std=c99 -lm -O3

This will generate a.exe. You can render a wav by doing the following:

a.exe 48000 > music.raw

Import music.raw into audacity. You should select unsigned 8-bit stereo 48000 sample rate. Then export as wav.

To play in realtime:

Install ffmpeg/ffplay

Type the following into cmd:

a.exe 32000 | ffmpeg -f u8 -ar 32000 -ac 2 -i pipe:0 -f wav - | ffplay - -showmode 1

You can now listen to it in realtime in full stereo. :)
(Note: if it stutters, change all instances of 32000 to a lower number. My machine can handle up to 32000Hz but that may not be the case for everyone.)



gcc c_file.c -std=c99 -lm -O3
a.out 32000 | aplay -c 2 -r 32000

(Note: untested in linux/aplay)
Confirmed working in linux now. Ty golgi.

@pigdevil This was never in issue in bytebeats in previous Spring Tracks so I fail to see why it would suddenly be invalid now. Also yes, I set the default sample rate in the C file too high and forgot to lower it because I was in a rush to submit this and the deadline had almost passed. I enabled commandline arguments because I know the performance may be worse for others so I made the sample rate fully customizable. If I had remembered I would have set the default to 32000Hz in the first place.

@pigdevil2010 If I'm reading the lyceum correctly the bytebeat1k format was created partly to prevent tool assisted entries (i.e. mod players), but the size-unlimited bytebeat format has no restrictions on that.

Well I have no idea what the deal is with the invalidness or whatever, but this song is fuckin great! Really nice upbeat arcade vibes.

confirmed linux user, plays flawlessly even at 48000 and 64000(!!!) hz

screenshot of my terminal outputs (underrun!!! == stutter)
https://i.imgur.com/hcjWbaD.png 88.2 kHz is the limit for me...

no stutters up to 64k even if i do it the ffmpeg way

this is legit! you need to Install Linux!

Can I predict next year's Jimmy's bytebeat entry: sounds like a song made in a DAW, complete with crazy DSP effects lmao

how did you make this though, this is insane stuff

Okay fine, I went a bit harsh. People will just going to vote based on how it sounds and not legitimacy anyways 🤷🏻‍♀️

Also yeah you did everything fair and square. Now I know what level I have to achieve for this format.

@charlotte I was just doing what I thought sounded good in my head at the time lmao
@RazerBlue believe it or not, I actually figured out how to make a compressor of all things (didn't use it in this though because fuck compressors lol)

Also, bit of an update. I decided to make an infinitely* looped version of this:

I would advise against rendering a wav of this and leave it running for too long lol.

* Note: due to the max integer range it is not actually infinite. May crash after ~8 hours (more or less depending on which sample rate you use)

I don't understand sh!t about bytebeat. What I've understood from comments and irc chat is that coming up with this in bytebeat is hard af, amirite?

Kudos, then.

Jesus christ, man. This is incredible. I can't believe you straight up wrote a program to generate this song, that's dedication to the craft.

still really liked to see this on SMW Central Idol 9's final round tbh ;)

this was definitely up there on my favorite entry list from that round too, and honestly it was a surprise to see it here while searching for your songs, haha

tho honestly, I think it's even more of a surprise on how much work you put into this, damn :O
