sounds like 1k intro synth here :)

Either it's not working properly on my machine, or then it's the worst-sounding synth I've ever heard

Im sorry but it is horrible

Some thoughts:
1. Example file doesn't seem to be showing too much power of this tool.
2. I prefer standard C, D, E... to do, re, mi... in trackers. ;)
3. It would be cool if music was embedded into the example instead of being stored in separate file.
4. It's quite hard to tune anything using frequency slider (which should probably be renamed to "period").
5. Looking at the mapfile, it doesn't seem to be a synth for 1-4k, so it definitely should offer something more than it offers now.

Anyway, as you said, it's first version, so no thumb so far and I'm waiting for next releases.

Krzysiek-K: i've made the sample in 5mn, it wasn't the point. for a,b,c, yes i know ;)
but actually i want to make it be able to be used in 4k.

No friends left to beta test anything ?
Would have been better for you to show the synth in a prod first than in a tool version.

I have just one question: Is the noise intentional? When pattern 2 of the sample starts, nearly all I can hear is noise. And I'm not speaking about note-on/off clicks, but noisy noise. I hope it only sounds like that on my machine.

Haven't really tested it, so no vote.

I coded a saw wave generator for a DSP processor today. Even the first buggy draft test version sounded much better than this, so I'll join the bandwagon

Skarab : here's a hint.
Insert Sleep(40); after message processing loop in your sample player.
Do you like the music ?
If you dont get what ~25 fps have to do with this then let me explain. As you suggest to insert synth update call into rendering loop, i have to notice that highly complicated hi-tech 'sweetheart' demo runs at 15 fps on some scenes, and average framerate can hardly approach 30. from the bottom.

good luck.

Skarab, what i said before was just an approximation based on fraps framerate counter. Now i've performed a benchmark with fraps.

Frames, Time (ms), Min, Max, Avg
10553, 346419, 14, 147, 30.463

Not to put shame on you, i've started benchmark _after_ precalc was finished ( actually when i saw a few frames of first scene ) and i've finished it _before_ shutdown routine.

This is the worst piece of s**t that I have ever seen... or heard for that matter. So I guess you get to be in the world records as the lamest of the lame. Congratulations on being the lamest f**k on Pouet. Oh yeah, two thumbs down , one for the prod the other for being such a f**king lame bastard! Congratulations!!

It ultimately fails because of crash-bugs and very difficult interface. I must admit I liked the 'random tune' - for some perverted reason... these tunes are ideal to put you to sleep.. The screenshot could be better.. How about one from that demo with the infamous 'sex' scene ? (from the same demo with the limping horse, or whatever it was..).

who cares about the screenshot of a demo tool
sucks added on the 2005-03-21 23:55:10 by coma coma
first of all: i don't see the point in releasing that tool. but you decide, not me.

anyway the samples may be good enough for a 4k but not more. the tool seems to be full of bugs (crashed 4 times in 4 minutes). i tried hard to do a good basedrum but it seems that i am to lame, to much idiot or a master looser to create one. maybe just my speakers are fucked up?! no need to talk about the hardness in tracking music with it. i would prefer hacking notes into the demo/intro source code instead.

but even the thumb goes down now you can show us invisible potential by doing a great tune for a later intro and actually this is what it is about, isn't it? :)
sucks added on the 2005-04-13 12:33:47 by scicco scicco
scicco: this version was made in few days, and there is as much bugs than fuxplux (before that i didnt know things like making sound, frequencies, ... ).
and yes, i'm actually making a 4k with v2
added on the 2005-04-13 13:38:49 by skarab skarab
skarab: okee, so lets look forward to it.

anyway, maybe you should think twice before releasing a kind of beta version especially when it gives nothing to noone except to have a look at a non-finished version. keep it for your eyes only, make damn good music and let the people talk about your stuff like "how did he managed that fucking superb synth tune???". THEN the time should be good to release that kind of tool.

nevertheless keep on coding, usually everyone gets better with every line of code written. :)

Thats an evil rumour.. there are no bugs in fuxplux.. every bug is a feature..
