Well, in music editor you program wave register too ;) It's legit music compo - not much coding here, unless you create your own player.

You can manipulate triangle bit, test bit and gate bit. I didn't want to put it that way initially to avoid confusion among musicians without programming skills but it turned out English is a bitch xD

- triangle waveform
- no waveform
- testbit

That's more or less what twisted grammar was supposed to convey ;) Sorry! :D

Your new code? Still waiting... ;)

Anyway, think I'm gonna mix-up 2 compos now.

Our idea was to squeeze $11 as much as possible so file size limit is unnecessary ;)

Oh wait, testbit's allowed? That changes things a lot. I read that backwards before. Thanks for the clarification.

It is just so surreal that there has to be a rule for - no wave :) "you can build this house out of something or emptiness" :) I do not think that what I had in mind is within the spirit of the competition.

Not stating that funny point would mean that we cannot put $01/$00 into reg so either you put triangle, release it or gtfo, heheh xD Believe me, you'll hear it in action ;)

please define "single/multispeed allowed". 78 player calls per frame ok? replayer running in main loop AND irq ok?

Anything you wish, as long as you don't use routine for reading and playing sample data. Gotta ask Isildur what about soft synth based on very fast replay (if that's what you aim for) :P If it uses routine identical with sample playback, it should IMHO count as digis.
