By DusanStraklI wrote a library to enable BASIC programs play music in the background.
It is compatible with Simplest Effects Sound library I released a while ago.
To demo the library I included two BASIC programs:
PLAY.BAS - Playing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star - it demonstrates the BASIC program doing other stuff including calling simple Effects
HOUSE.BAS - Playing House of the Rising Sun - it demonstrates a bit more complex music
Full Tutorial and source code is available from my blog:
By kliepatschI wanted to explore the possibilities with the PCM output. This tiny synth generates a sweet tone from three sine waves, coated in a thin shiny silver layer of aliasing. To spice it up, I also added a delay effect. You can play it with your keyboard. Use Z and X to switch octaves.
I do not plan to follow this route any further, because the possibilities are quite limited with the X16. I am sure one could do better than I did, but the X16 doesn't have enough power to provide a whole lot of flexibility in the sound generation (at least with PCM).

Feel free to reuse the code for your own projects!

Use the keys as any tracker to play.
Use the sliders an buttons with the mouse to adjust synth params.
