Topic: new-ish engine: SquatE
An updated version of my older Squat engine. It features much higher sample quality, achieved by using interleaving mixing technique in the Music Box fashion, as well as reading two samples per one iteration of the tone loop, so while tone channels update at ~8400 Hz, sample channel gets updated at ~16.8 KHz, and they're not getting masked by the tone channels anymore. Strategic timings applied to even out tone and sample volumes. This helped to make samples sound much clearer, now suitable for high-frequency instruments such as hats, and for tonal instruments, to some extent. New mixing scheme affected the way tone channels sounds, too, so it does not obsolete the older version, they're more like two flavors of the same thing (gritty loud sound vs clean, but thinner one).
- 4 channels of tone, each channel has its own duty cycle
- Noise mode for the last tone channel
- Noise percussion, 9 pitches of noise at 4 volumes
- 15 non-interrupting sampled drums, can be very lengthy
- Improved speed range
Like usual, it is included into the latest 1tracker release.
