Here you can post the results of your experiments, or something interesting you found on the Internet and would like to share it (with link to the source).
Interesting and cool-sounding code I will add to my library!

Use markup button "C" or insert [code][/code] tags to wrap your code, so that it will not be formatted. Like this:

Or use links generated by player:

Better to shorten your links like this way:

Sorry for not responding, I don't have much time. I had to listen to everything carefully to answer.

You should have inserted a rickroll here :P

The downside of self-defining variables is that the formulas may not sound right if you jump to a different time.
> there is a small error involving the minification of TTT (The Tonal Tone)
Oh, sorry! Fixed now. Thanks for pointing out!

"The streets of the night metropolis are full of dangers! But the Moon lights your way, and you're not afraid of anything. Feel free to move forward through the narrow lanes!"

- Formatted version - 1501B size
- Minified version - 799B size

The song I created 2022-05-25 and posted at
It continues the technology used in "Antarctica" (>>67), but now it has added some cool drums using the noise instrument, and added the triangle generator.

"For thousands of years there was a world of glaciers, snowy expanses and ice caves. But the earth is changing. Giant ice walls are crumbling, falling in huge chunks. Here and there the first flowers bloom and the grass turns green. The first spring is coming to these lands..."

- Formatted version - 2527B size.
- Minified version - 1214B size.

This is the song I created 2022-05-02 and posted at for "Spring Tracks XI" competition.
It is a continuation of the "Antarctica" (>>67) theme development. Tried to get something like a NES sound. The same drums and triangular generator later was used in the "Dancing Moon". Successfully turned out a noise instrument, universal for different percussions. I even managed to implement a primitive echo from explosive falling pieces.
Hi, I have made a thing.

Forgot to add, they're both 8000 Hz, but the first one I originally made for 44100 and then changed it so that it worked for 8k.

I've Made A New Bytebeat Song. (The Clipping Is A Coding Error)
(149.25KB, 2000x1808)
Oh, hello, I saw your youtube channel

There you have some videos of your bytebeat songs.
Your songs are really weird, but weird in a good way, which is cool. Seems all your songs are like bad trip hallucinations. On the one hand - microtonal intervals, disharmony and chaos. On the other hand - a certain order, subject to a direct rhythm and mystical chords.
Also, your songs can be very much optimized, looks like you're just doing Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V when experimenting, as there are many sections of repetitive code, but I don’t have time to do the optimizations for the formatted versions in library.
And you didn't name the song, had to name it as "I've Come To Make An Announcement" in the library, hehe. Maybe you can give a name?

Hello to the music and programming fans!
This is a thread dedicated to the bytebeat player.

Here I will keep a log of changes, as well as show new formulas and code (my own, or someone else's), which I will add to the player's library list.

The library has changed last days.

- All songs now sorted by date, from oldest at top to newest at bottom. Groups of songs by one author now placed in list by oldest one.
- New library sections structure: [Classic] now contains only C-compatible code that compiles successfully in the C compiler. Of course, this does not guarantee correct reproduction in C, but I plan to do a more thorough check. [JS code] contains all other code that works in JS players, is compact in size and does not need to be transferred to a file. [JS big code] - all the large code or the code for which a formatted version exists. Also, added minified versions for songs with compressed size less than 1kb.
- All songs now have original versions (I searched and add every single one of it, sic!), and minified versions if possible (even with difference for one character). Minified code shown by default. If it impossible to minify code, then original version shown.
- In [JS big code] sections, now added "original" and "minified" buttons to play original and minimized code versions.
- If the song is a remix, the source is indicated if possible.

Pointing out the songs that were added to the library in January and were not mentioned here:
- tuned_phase time_modulation by argarak from - Cool big techno song with phase synthesis. Initially this track was not intended to be played in JS players, and also used its own sound output, so I had to fix it and make my own version. Also it has a feature, after a certain time, the track changes its playback speed, like other argarak's tracks.

- ByteSongg (source) - Great work and nice synths! Reminds me some kind of Scooter song, really.

- As you may have noticed since january, the editor has been using the highlighting of JS code. (Picture 1)
- You can highlight pairs of brackets - now it's easier to navigate in large bracket expressions.
- Double clicking on an expression allows you to highlight the same parts of the code or to find all matches of the variable you need.
- By pressing Ctrl+F, you can search in the code, even through regular expressions.
- A line counter has appeared on the left side of the editor, in which you can collapse code blocks, such as functions.
- As noticed >>28, better waveform visualization. When using the Waveform mode at large scales, all vertical lines merge into one background. And to distinguish them from drawing in Point mode, this background is now drawn in a more gray color. Now its more visual to track signal levels on the chart at large scales. Compare the Picture 2 with Points mode, and Picture 3 with Waveform mode.
- Better errors handling. Now, if there is an error, the line and symbol where the error occurred are indicated. Now there are two kinds of errors: compilation error when the track cannot be played, and a playback error that occurred at a certain point in time, but the track can continue to play.

Ahoy, my friends! Here a new portion of songs in my library! Most of them are from r/bytebeat, but some are from visitors of this board. And there are many more formulas to listen to and add!

Songs from reddit:
by Decent-Manager-6169
- Sine Music Test 1 (source) - Sine song with a simple melody. Even stuck a little while listening. Also, interesting noise drum section.
- An Escaped War Or Something (source) - A lot of work has been done! A beautiful sad song, like from some post-apocalyptic action game. Also it is long, and after 95 seconds a powerful sqrt beat starts!
- Stimmer but with Hihat and Crash (source) - The author has created a lot of stimmer remixes, here's another one.
- Melody Of Im Blue (with drums) (source) - A cool cover for Eiffel 65 - Blue song.
- Completely Reverse of "rrrola" (source) - I like rrola's formula, and the reverse also sounds good.

New songs posted on and added to library:

from >>50:
- oddsine - Interesting simple sine loop.
- genreframe - Very strange sound effect and some kind of melody.
- HAZEHOUSE - An odd way to change the tempo multiplying by fraction t*=11/12.
- Unnecessary-ARPEG.hc - Hardcore tempo! Also sounds interesting at 22kHz.
- CBRT-FILE R00TZ - Crazy schizo song, reminds me the creativity of Cyriak.

As you may have noticed, new buttons and features have been added recently. So:

- The "Sample rate" selector is now editable.
- Added "Fast play" and "Fast reverse" buttons. Each click doubles the speed, up to 8.
- Added the "Copy link" button.
- Better "Recording" button.
- Added the "Reverse play" button.
- The page now has semantic elements to navigate with keyboard (Tab / Shift+Tab).
- Lazy onclick loading for song libraries.
- Script globals and prototypes now cant be changed from the editor.

Recently added songs:

- "The Flower Festival" by Jimmyoshi. This beautiful song is too big to post the link here. The song is horribly unoptimized and is capable of blowing any computer even at 8Hz sample rate. That's why I set up it at 4kHz. If I have time, I will try to optimize this song so that it can be played at 8Hz.

Songs by lhphr
from >>61:
- CRZstep - Reminds me the "Crude Sinewave Dubstep" by Gabriel Miceli.
- Retrixtaria - There is some special charm in small rates. Also, the song can be easily scaled up to 32k by adding t/=8, and the sound will be clear. But it won't be that lo-fi song anymore.
- Intra - A short but interesting formula that gives a melody.

- Something New (source) - I really like this tune. And it's cool that notes and chords are generate mathematically. This is a good challenge! And the melody is really nice, with a nostalgic vibe.
- "Something New" using functions (source) - A minimal example of "Something New" using functions
- advanced technology (source) - Wow, what a jaw-dropping banger track! Cool Arabic harmony! I especially liked the transitions to a higher key at 108 and 162 seconds, and so on. But after 2000-3000 seconds it starts to go out of line, and distortions appear. Also, recommend to listen with good headphones. Again, musical harmony is calculated and arrays aren't used. Here a link to the beginning of our discussion, who are interested.

- Plaate (source) - Some code I found yet in a legendary pouet thread
- 8-Bit Ajaxzit (source) - Big complex track with powerful drums but weird harmony and chords. But I found beauty in this music.

- Bytebeat composer now supports stereo!
All you need is an output array [] with two channels, left and right. For example:
Left channel has green waveform in the scope, and right has magenta.
Stereo songs now marked with "Stereo" tag in the library.

- Wide mode available for 1440px screens and wider. In this mode, the text editor is now expanded to the maximum height, and the song library is located on the right.

I Survived On $0.01 For 30 Days - Day 3,
(t%(t>>3|t>>12)) best at 10kHz
(t%(t>>3|t>>12)-t) best at 10kHz
(t*(t<<3|t>>12)) best at 8kHz
(t*(t<<.1|t>>9)) best at 8kHz
((t>>3|t>>12)*(t*(t<<3|t>>12))) best at 8kHz

Sounds similar to "ONE MILLION alarm clocks"

Also, you can get rid of n:

Well done for guessing how to get the unescaped code, also I already made an expanded version three month ago and posted it on reddit.
As I said, it would be unfair to publish this expanded version in my library since the beauty of SArpnt's code is in encryption. Need to steal the decryption mechanism from his player in order to play the encrypted code without loss of performance.
By the way, why did SArpnt delete his account from reddit?

I decided to make a guide because I didnt find a guide that i liked a lot, I put a lot of time and effort on this guide, so please take a look at it, also in the guide I left a part for things that are left to do or understand of bytebeat, I also recomend that if you consider yourself a bytebeat expert, you make a guide of your own, with all the advance learnings. (I'm not a native english speaker, so please forgive my grammar errors) the link
Hi Ravary and other "bytecoders",
there is a demoscene related Discord server (specializing on sizecoding), where we have a dedicated channel for generative music. The organizers of Lovebyte are also there. So if you like to join, this is the invitation link:
The Discord invite expired. Is invite still available? Interested in the community.
Oops, it expired. Here is a non expiring one:

And there is another Discord with a dedicated bytebeat channel here (down in the "Beauty of Math" section): >
