great bitbuf product. I enjoyed your demo, your technical ability, and the precision of your design, also musical creativeness.
ditto to other comments, stereo with panning, are you sending bitbuf o/p to what kind of recorder? computer? apple?
as composer who likes to record this would be a great tool to have in studio. I could also see it as great improv performance tool.
keep me informed as your production progresses.

Making the Chipophone

You rock! I'm now trying to find one of those organs, but no luck in Canada.

This is amazing, please release a kit or a finished product! I'll echo the Kickstarter sentiment.

Suggestion: MIDI clock in (if not i/o) to sync with other hardware/software! Analog clock would be cool too but MIDI sync is the most important

A case against syntax highlighting

Thu 9-Feb-2012 23:48
OTOH, one striking memory I have is the first time I came across syntax highlighting: it was when I first saw C code, in Borland's Turbo C environment for MS-DOS.

Ok, I'm being a total pedant here but it must have Turbo C++. The TC v2.01 I used didn't have highlighting. It had a few bugs though - the most awful of which was implementing fread as a looped fgetc. Two orders of magnitude performance loss (actually about 75x). (TDebug was great). I still have trouble getting myself to use fread() or, thanks to DOS, allocating memory above 64KB.

Back to the point a bit - I think some editors have spent far too much programming effort on their highlighting lexers which could have been spent on useful stuff like ctag support and code outlining.

Hi, your work is amazing plus you know how to play some great themes :)
You killed me when you played the High Scores of Commando haha

Just to know, if I want to make you play in a concert in Paris, what would be the difficulty of moving the Chipophone...looks pretty big, right?
Will you be willing to move it from it's place?

Thanks again for everything, keep up the good work!!

When did you do electronically?
Sun 12-Feb-2012 12:21
some 1 on mirc posted this today.. and I its so very AWESOME!!!!
this from 1 microcontroller. I feel tempted to just rebuild this as a standalone hehe
Did ya ever make more demo's on this hardware?
Sun 12-Feb-2012 21:35
Please help me ! Can anyone tell me how to change the c - code to make that the whole program loops itself ? Where i must change the code. I`m absolutely a c-code noop - i have no idea ! PLZ HELP ME !

Oh man this is so lovely.. The live capabilities of this and the versitality of it... I want one right now. Id play with it all night.. Or if you release this as a kit i will purchase it something shameful! -owly84

Superb post. Thank you.

oh my god please let us buy one why are you teasing us so much by posting such awesome videos and not selling your stuff in some form or another? You are like the god of building awesome things. Please go show this to guitar center or sam ash or some music store and try to retail this, I think that they would think this was awesome. Please manufacture this. it kicks the alesis microns butt. lol.

I've been searching in vain for a guitar tabulature for Fratres, does anyone have a version ? I'd be happy for just the basic rythm part/main chords but I'd really like it if anyone had a tab for some cool arppregios too! I've found some sheet music but I'm so bad at reading them, I can't translate it reliably :(

Forgive my tardiness. Having found this explanation of Fratres on Google (thank you Mr. Kesson for such a thorough analysis!), I set out to intabulate it. It works perfectly without transposition. Please email me at ninebreaker21@yahoo.com and I will send you a copy of my intabulation.

I can't seem to figure out how to fit this onto an ATmega88. The final hex seems to be 13.4KB. You mentioned you did some cool stuff with packing but I don't know how to do any of that on an ATmega chip.

Hey! Thanks for an insirational project!
I'm currently studying your code and I can't figure out where does this "50 HZ" come from ?

"void playroutine() { // called at 50 Hz"

The routine runs in the main loop
"for(;;) {


Please explain why is it triggered at 50 HZ ?

please sell this, I can have all my money, ALL OF IT!!!!

Looks like it eventually runs out of levels at level 2147483647.
(I don't know much about the language you programmed it in, but is there a reason that the level counter is signed? However, that would just delay the problem...)

This is a bit late, but here's that sign translated to English by Google Translate:

Any news on this? Have you decided whether you'd prefer to open source it or sell it?

Java challenge

Wed 29-Feb-2012 22:33
It's called a recursive function. Hence the name he gave the function.
The function will continue while the result is not zero, and finish off any remaining recursive function calls.

I don't plan to look too much at the code or to see what it does. Not my thing.
