BIOS ('bytebeat' noise/texture/melody generator)

hi, here is a new instrument I’m working on based on Boran Robert’s mysterious ‘0xB105FOOD’ patch ( https://forum.pdpatchrepo.info/topic/12647/0xb105food-experimental-music-texture-generator-using-bytechip-equations-v1-alpha ). It feeds a few different numbers into an ‘expr~’ expression object and as it evaluates them it spews out all sorts of interesting textures, tape loading/modem sounds, screeches, weird arpeggios, etc…

I have given it a very abstract minimal interface (someone who understands how these expr~ things work might want to do a version that makes more sense) and there is no unstep or qseq. Some nice effects can be achieved with ‘latch’ manipulation though.

Top button is a randomiser, the toggle below is on/off, and the one below that refires the expression evaluation (I think)…

The volume can be pretty erratic so be careful!

Please let me know if it works and all feedback is welcome…

Updated version with a highpass filter to get rid of horrible DC offset problem

Bios is pretty cool, albeit dopey. :smiley:
