The art of being clueless

What indigoLoop didn't manage to achieve was to drive the 5-channel synthesizer inside the AtariVox.
The way the data must be sent to the SpeakJet chip required a different approach: indigo5 uses the entire grid as a 'snapshot' of the 5-channel synthesizer state.
Bytes are progressively sent to the AtariVox frame by frame, so there's a delay...

Just like atari 2600 voices, it is possible to have the pitch of AtariVox words randomly picked, using tables that define scales.
Video, video. Example, example.

if the leftmost cell of the frequency value is set, the value is not used to define a fixed frequency, but is used instead to pick a frequency from a table (that defines a 'scale')
this video shows a few iterations with fixed frequency values, then the leftmost frequency cell is set, and as a consequence the frequency value is loaded from a table

Two random modes have been added, both pertaining to the AtariVox: the first generates exclusively AtariVox presets, the second mode generates both AtariVox and 2600 presets.
An example of the second, 'mixed' mode is shown in the following video.

The previous video showed just how much slow and painful AtariVox data input 'by hand' is.
To (partially) address this problem, I implemented AtariVox presets.
Just like 'normal' voice presets, it is possible to browse through 191 words, simply holding fire and moving left/right.
To make things (hopefully) more musical, the pitch can be set by hol...

indigoVox has merged with indigoLoop, as it is now possible to send data to the AtariVox while the loop is playing (see the video example if you dare)

Random voices are nice, but what about presets ?
It is now possibile to browse preset voices, as shown in this video (snare / bass drum / lo tom / hi tom / hat / snare again)

Loop mode now features an auto random switch, that can be used to generate a random loop or a single voice after 1/2/4 loop iterations.
This video shows different voices being generated on the same loop, every two loop iterations.
Gfx mode screen has been reworked, too.
