1 bit sound from piggy tracker

1 bit sound from piggy tracker.
Closely related to my experiment with "no input piggin" which used a wav of sample length one with zero volume.
This project loops a section of a wav of sample length one with nonzero volume.
When the sample is looping the audio path is "on", when the sample is not looping the audio path is "off".  There is a voltage spike and accompanying audible click when the audio path changes state, that is what is being manipulated.
1 bit sound emerges.

Download the project folder and mp3 in zip format from here if you don't believe me: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pxqzxxid6vvhc … 0piggy.zip

It's hard to make true 1bit without aliasing I'm sure.

hm... quite interesting. thanks for sharing.

Protip:  change tempo and groove settings while this project is running to get much more interesting sounds wink

Actually this is more acurately "voltage spike sound" than 1 bit sound.  When the audio circuit is turned off suddenly from a very high gain there is an audible click and that's what I'm actually manipulating.  However I firmly believe that this still qualifies as 1 bit.

I'm not sure what the equivalent would be on a gameboy.

speaking of 1 bit- is it possible on dmg-01? wink
this is super cool.
