This runs poorly in the Web version of 0.1.0f (runs too slow for the streaming to work well). This cart is better experienced in desktop versions.

Long Line Theory

Cart #eyn_llt-0 | 2024-04-19 | Embed ▽ | No License

This cart is a quick port of Long Line Theory, a bytebeat track that was and still is impressing me as of today. When I have access to directly audio rendering, this is usually my audio Hello World, especially with the C version I made to port the JS snippet to desktop.

This bytebeat is actually quite heavy, I had to resort to some tricks like a dirty resampling from 8kHz (its original sampling rate) to Picotron's 44.1kHz. It gave me enough spare cycles so I could whip that ugly visualizer. Can't have both your cake and eat it, I guess!

Again, many thanks to @luchak for the PCM streaming proof-of-concept cart and mu6k for that awesome piece of code.

...ignorant question: can you make Picotron do the resampling by transposing down ... would it be 30 semitones? to make the PCM stream 5.5 times slower? Sorry, I don't know how the PCM cart works.

Also, this is cool! This is a cool beat, and I like the messy visualizer.
