I succesfully dissecated the formula in many modules, each one is a independant part of the music : the intro, the background wobbling, the drum, the melody.

Bytebeat was originaly done by making these C programs and redirect the output to /dev/dsp (Linux here, direct link to sound card's PCM channel). BUt IIRC you can write to a .wav, and it should do it.

3ndymion: That's bytebeat, this is based on little C programs. This one cheated a litle because he uses Javascript functions and syntax, but I couldn't port it correctly at this time. The original link is next to the Facebook icon. As you can see it's on a Javascript bytebeat generator. Javascript is based on C, so the JS sampler was thought for C bytebeat, but visibly, some clever dudes used JS syntax for using arrays, floats, or additional functions!

A bytebeat program generally is one thing : a formula stuck in a infinite loop and a loop counter, here t. It's like hearing functions graph. SOmetimes it's crappy, but sometimes you can reach some good tunes.

This is very interesting. Please forgive my ignorance, but what exactly is this??? This is C, running on some kind of hardware???
