Bytebeat music (or one-liner music) is discovered in september 2011. It's a piece of rhythmic and somewhat melodic music with no score, no instruments, and no real oscillators. It's simply a single-line formula that defines a waveform as a function of time, processed 8000 times per second, resulting in an audible waveform with a 256-step resolution from silence (0) to full amplitude (256). If you put that formula into a program with a loop that increments time variable (t), you can generate the headerless unsigned 8 bit mono 8kHz audio stream on output, like in this application. Or for example, you can generate PWM signal on the pin of your microcontroller and send it to the speaker.
History of bytebeat
Here on this page you can play with the collection of one-liner bytebeat music formulas that I found on the internet (1,
4) and which I discovered through experimentation, trial-and-error testing and piece-by-piece constructing.
