Popforge is an Actionscript 3 code sandbox started by Andre Michelle and Joa Ebert.
Not all of our projects made it to here. We have a lot in the pipe we want to share with the community but still want to assure high quality content. Currently you will find the audio library sources online.
The first contribution is the audio hack within a simple framework plus the complete sources of the 8Bitboy. We rewrite the engine and the GUI to make it more comfortable to read – plus – we could increase the performance dramatically. It takes about 2% CPU on my machine (Dell Inspiron 9300 – Intel Pentium M 1,86Ghz)! There are still some effects missing, however you are invited to contribute. Just get familiar with the source and send me an email with your suggestions. Joa is currently preparing the 8Bitboy to process XM files as well. Notice the context menu to turn on a StereoEnhancer and a BassBoost.
Furthermore there is a WAV De- and Encoder and tiny examples for synthesizing a sound, an audio stream and of course a simple playback example for playback WAV files at any rate (pitch). I released also a new (old) version of a Particle Synthesizer which can create really weird and gripping sound atmospheres. Feel welcome to experiment.
Sound programming is just the new creative playground in Flash!
Joa has also setup two detailed instructions how to create a proper environment using Flex3. However, we organized all sources independently from any IDE. So whatever comes (FDT3.0!!!), you can adapt the sources to your preferences.
