Weird interference pattern

Postby TheNoobHunter » Mon Oct 24, 2016 1:18 am

I found a really weird interference pattern that silences or distorts square waves at seemingly random times. It only happens when the frame is played with the rest of the song. When the frame is played on its own, it sounds normal.
(it's the last frame of the song btw)

Typical wave canceling out. This requires some precise timing to happen, but even if it doesn't it may still produce highly unstable timbres.
25% and 75% could cancel each other out, same with 50% and 50%. Even for waveforms that don't cancel each other out, you should avoid playing them at exactly the same pitch. Use a P7F or P81 effect.
nsf.nesbbs.com under reconstruction, better player might be available in the future.

VRC6 PWM is GAY because it has colours of the rainbow in the NSFPlay keyboard visualizer.
