As promissed, a version of that bassline for your enjoyment. Copying for
educational purposes permitted, permission for public performance also
granted but only in modified form ( ;¬) ). No waranties, no refunds.
//the Blit's waveform will reset sometimes if the Blit is modulated,
creating a click,
//the JCRev turns those into pleasant sounds but they realy
// need those gains or there will be terrible clipping distortion.
//I quite like the sound this one makes in this form.

Blit b => JCRev r => dac;
.5 => b.gain;
.5 => r.gain;

40 => int foo;
int bar;

  for(1 => int n; n < 5; n++)
    n => b.harmonics;
    0.25::second => now;
  //very simple algorithem to create the melody.
  //i'd like to hear about other or better tricks, anyone?
  //tweak the numbers for variations
  (++bar % 5) +=> foo;
  if(foo > 43) 40 => foo;
  Std.mtof(foo) => b.freq;

I contrasted this against some randomised sound made by the Shakers, of
which I sporked multiple versions, then added one or two shreds of Shakers
with the PRCRev for contrast. This'll give you some pleasant (to me) mellow
techno-ish stuff very quickly with enough parameters to tweak and have fun

Nothing especially clever here but it has a good ratio of fun per line of

Happy tweaking!
