This is promising, the same shape can be generated with a cellular automaton, removing the need for a binary conversion table.
Using numbered variables for the rule further simplifies the code,
and because it's based on relative offsets, the drawing unit can be repeated multiple times.
@l3kn 0__0 no way, please PR this to examples/misc
@neauoire To the orca-c repo on sourcehut or to one of the repos on github?
For sourcehut I need a mail address for the patchset, I couldn't find a mailing list.
@neauoire You asked me to PR the code for this to the ORCA examples, I've not used git send-mail (for the sourcehut orca repo) before and it's prompting me for a mail address.
Should I use one of the repos on github instead?
@l3kn Put it on github yeah :) https://github.com/hundredrabbits/Orca/tree/master/examples/misc
@l3kn orca? the screenreader??
@l3kn this is really cool! I never thought about using the operators to make automatons on orcλ
@dfr I knew it had to be possible thanks to Turing completeness, but I'm surprised by how little logic is needed
@l3kn this is beautiful
Can you recommend a source for (drum) samples? I'll try to make it generate sound later.
@l3kn What kind? I can send you some of mine. Do you want like loops or just a kick sample, snare sample, etc?
@megabyteGhost Single samples would be ideal, maybe a hi-hat, kick, snare and bass drum so there is one sample per "drawing unit"
@l3kn Sure gimme like 5-10 minutes
@l3kn If I send you 1 file w/ all the samples spaced out, can you chop it up or do you need me to send each as their own file?
@megabyteGhost Unless it's more effort for you, single files would be better. If the file size is small enough, you can send them as attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org
@l3kn Nah it's eazy to just highlight and export a clip.
@megabyteGhost Thanks! I'll try to put it together this evening.
