Started glitching. Restoring backup.
Edit: Older version works fine. No changes in newer version except for glitching.

If you like my work: why not give me an internet?

This is a demo of the new sound engine. It's an early demo so don't expect it to be spectacular. It will support pitchbends, vibrato, sweeps and portamento etc.

This is pretty impressive; how are you producing the sound? Are you using specially timed instances of Freq() or writing directly to the port? You have to explain to me how it works :3

I write to the port using the ->port command. By turning on and off the port rapidly I can emulate a digital to analog converter.

Edit: Btw in the video it was just altering the duty cycle.
The square at 50% duty cycle sounds loud and at 10% the volume of the note is much lower. Real pwm using digital to analog conversion can be heard by the human ear, so I would have to add a capacitor and a resistor to filter the signal which is not a problem for me, but not everyone wants to make custom hardware for it to work. For those who do want to make this little circuit I will add support for custom waveforms and such, but otherwise you will be stuck to squarewaves.

I think I'm gonna focus on the next version. It will feature a nicer layout. Something like this:
SQ1 F1 SQ2 F2 {}
--- -- --- -- ||
A-4 51 --- -- []
=== == === == ||
--- 00 --- -- ||
G#3 A3 --- -- ||
--- -- --- -- ||
--- -- --- -- {}

Yes there will hopefully be two channels.

Traxe 2.0 is being worked on! It will use the TIMID soundchip to generate more complex sounds. You can have up to 3 channels of sound with various waveforms.
