it's more like a gingle then


RE: Podcast Song Contest - Adrift - 05-06-2016

Jingle, sure. But, an intro could be a 10 second song though, so it's close-ish.

The naming convention doesn't really matter.
It should be a very short but attractive intro.

I'm working on two ideas, one is with a guitar and the other is an electronic beat.

I used to use aldrin and neil some years ago, but neither of them is currently available as a package for Arch and I'm extremely lazy today.

So ...

I remembered there was a posting about algorithmic music. I gave it a try.

Interpret the data as raw unsigned 8 bit PCM files with a sampling rate of 8kHz or 44kHz, depending on which block you choose. In other words: "./nixers | aplay -q -r 8000 -f U8"

Code:

Code:
#include <stdio.h>

int
main()
{
    int t;

#if 0
    /* Intro (8kHz) */
    for (t = 0; t < 32768; t++)
        putchar((unsigned char)(t | (-t >> 8)) - 128);
    for (t = 0; t < 65536; t++)
        putchar((unsigned char)((t * 4 | t * 2 | t) | (t >> 4) | (t >> 8)) / 2);
#endif

#if 0
    /* Intro (44kHz) */
    for (t = 0; t < 4 * 32768; t++)
        putchar((unsigned char)((t | (-t >> 8)) >> 2) - 128);
    for (t = 0; t < 4 * 65536; t++)
        putchar((unsigned char)(((t * 4 | t * 2 | t) | (t >> 4) | (t >> 8)) >> 2) / 2);
#endif

#if 0
    /* Outro (8kHz) */
    for (t = 0; t < 65536; t++)
        putchar((unsigned char)(t | (-t >> 10)) - 128);

    for (t = 32768; t < 65536; t++)
        putchar((unsigned char)((t * 8) | (t >> 4) | (t >> 8)) / 2);
#endif

#if 0
    /* Outro (44kHz) */
    for (t = 0; t < 4 * 65536; t++)
        putchar((unsigned char)((t | (-t >> 10)) >> 2) - 128);

    for (t = 4 * 32768; t < 4 * 65536; t++)
        putchar((unsigned char)(((t * 8) | (t >> 4) | (t >> 8)) >> 2) / 2);
#endif

    return 0;
}

No idea if you'd really consider using this, but I had a hell lot of fun. :)

Whoa, I really like that. Great work!

Loved the 44kHz, both of them.

Venam, (side-topic) have you thought about background music for the podcast?

If you mean music playing in the background of talking I think that's a bad idea, would distract.

I concur, it would be distracting.
