That's better. Now if you could get that "doo doo doodit doo" near the end of the loop to sound a little less off key, it would sound even better. Since you're posting the bas file, I could try to hunt down notes that are closer by hand with Tone Toy 2008, but I don't understand which numbers are the notes in your program. Where should I be looking?
ZylonBane's code* processes the data in blocks of seven numbers, as in the comments:
rem voice 0 frequency, volume, distortion
rem voice 1 frequency, volume, distortion
One beat is equal to 24 duration-units. The "doo doo doodit doo" section you're wanting to tweak falls right after the loop point I've set, and begins with:
That's the first "doo", which is more in tune than the rest of it.
That being said, I don't know that you'll have a lot of luck finding more in-tune notes -- there really isn't anything else available in the lower octave, which is where the problem is. Eckhard's guide calls those two notes h1 and e1, following German notation; they correspond to notes 15 and 23 on distortion setting 7. Distortion setting 1 doesn't go that low, and setting 14 is just as out-of-tune (for the e1).
*(which is, I believe, a refinement of the code by Kisrael that I've used for all my previous tunes)
