This is half-feedback half-announcement, but



I made a mod of Tom Vian's flash port of sfxr

It has the following novelties:

1: persistent playlist
2: triangle waves (more substantial than sine waves, less harsh than saw waves)
3: pink noise (much softer than white noise)
4: extra 'change pitch' channel + 'pitch period' channel - useful for arpeggiation
5: share sounds by linking people directly
6: air version
7: gratuitous equalizer
8: ability to lock individual parameters during
9: look into delegating some processing to pixel bender

I'm totally willing to add any cool stuff that people might suggest...

OH, someone else was saying they couldn't see the instruction/credit text at the bottom of the page once.  If you notice this as well, please et me know.


TO DO LIST:
fix bug where running several copies at once can screw up history
think about mp3 exporter
think about presets
think about adding sound-combiner (micro-sequencer)
think about how I might split up the interface

Cool  Cool The new options are fun, and I like the little history window. These are the only issues I noticed:

-Is there a way to not have the arpeggios repeat?
-I get lag sometimes when changing sounds... It only seems to happen when I have noise with overtones. After the sounds are cached there's no lag, though.
-A big list of sliders gets kind of confusing. Have you thought about different ways to visualize certain options? For example, the volume and pitch envelopes could be vertical, or shown as a line graph... Might help break things up visually.

These are all pretty minor things though. Thanks for this.

If you have a pitch slide they won't repeat verbatim, but the basic answer is 'no'

Yeah, that option slows things down.  Don't think there's anything I can do to speed it up.

I haven't, yet.  I should, but I suspect that would lead me very far afield...

Thanks.  It's possible within AIR, but I don't think I have any control over it in vanilla flash Sad  Best you can do is to have a shortcut to the directory in your folder browser.

Oh well, that's a pity, but no biggie  Shrug
Great tool anyway though, it saves me having to find sfxr on my box every time I want to use it, or if I want to use it from school or something...

It's looking great so far, really cool to see someone take it further!

One thing I wanted to add to the original but never got the time was more presets. Especially now with all the new options, there must be some iconic sounds that aren't covered, it's just a case of finding them and randomising around a few settings.

Suggestions:

1) Continue to be awesome.

2) Perhaps buttons to slow-down, speed-up the playback time of a sound-effect?  I don't mean alter the pitch, but rather the length of time.  I remember using the old sfx-r and finding it a bit difficult.  I wanted the jump sound to take longer, but still go through the same 'motions'.  I don't remember it being easy.

Awesome tool!

I don't know much about Flash development but is it possible to have it as a standalone app? As in, not have to go online to work with it?

Thanks for this thing Smiley

MP3 would be great

Gazillion: if you scroll down you should see AIR version, that should work offline as an exe.

Yes, I'll definitely have to think about that (as well as broadening the existing categories).  It was on my list to do, but I couldn't think of anything.  If anyone has any suggestions for new sound categories, please share them with me here via the copy link button and.

It might be fun to add an ability for people to define their own presets (like a more elaborate version of the current one, in addition to locking tracks outright you can set ranges for variables, say).  But it would have to be done thoughtfully...hmm

We are moved to tears by the size of this thing.
By size you mean it's too big filesizewise?  I did a special 'static' build of it to fix some bugs draknek has on flash, which made it a bit bigger.  And the AIR standalone is...well...AIR.  Or window-size?

What about MP3 saving? Great tool otherwise, much thanks.
I'll look into this.

That's definitely possible, but it might end up a bit of a memoryhog.  Also, it sounds like you want to make a sequencer of the playlist.  That's not what it's for Wink

2) Perhaps buttons to slow-down, speed-up the playback time of a sound-effect?  I don't mean alter the pitch, but rather the length of time.  I remember using the old sfx-r and finding it a bit difficult.  I wanted the jump sound to take longer, but still go through the same 'motions'.  I don't remember it being easy.
Oh, those would be very meaningful additions I think.
