Over the last weeks I worked on a port of the awesome sfxr sound generator to pure Lua. My goal was to allow easy dynamical creation of sound effects based on in-game events. Think about infinite, completely procedurally generated games.
The source is on GitHub: http://github.com/nucular/sfxrlua
Here's some code since people love examples:
Code: Select all
local sfxr = require("sfxr") function love.load() local sound = sfxr.newSound() sound:randomize() sound:play() -- generates a SoundData and plays it end
- Editable documentation wiki at http://github.com/nucular/sfxrlua/wiki
- Output samples of a Sound instance can be generated using an iterator
- All 7 preset generators are implemented
- Demo application based on LoveFrames that resembles the original
- Export to the RIFF WAV format
- Saving and loading of the binary format used by vanilla sfxr
- Embedding into the love-loader framework or other kinds of threaded sound generation
The entire thing is a work in progress, that means sudden crashes and wild API changes may happen.
