Kragen's Introduction to ByteBeat music.

The simplest beat, a tick tick tick.

You'll hear 8000/256/d ticks per second where d is the number dividing t. Typically this division is achieved by right-shifting n places with the >>n operator.

(8000 / 256) / 8 = 3.9 ticks/sec

t>>3

(8000 / 256) / 7 = 4.5 ticks/sec

t/7

Of course things get complicated and the combinations are endless.

The "forty two" melody in various forms. From Viznut's deep analysis post.

t*(42&t>>10)

t*((42&t>>10)%14)

Kragen's *Crowd*, the score for my *Exploring Cyberspace* video contribution to X-Prize.

((t<<1)^((t<<1)+(t>>7)&t>>12))| t>>(4-(1^7&(t>>19)))| t>>7
