    how would i get the classic nes sound and make a 8 bit synth... i'm pretty new to max/msp but i'm taking a class on it, and i was hoping to do this for a project, maybe someone could at least point me in the right direction

      reduce the audio bit rate to 8 with degrade~ for starters! chuck a load of numbers into it.
      i know one thing the C64 dudes like rob hubbard used to do is very fast arpeggios to simulate chords, since they only had 4 channels i think. that should be easy to do

      degrade~ is nice, but lp.nn~ will give you 8-bit resolution *and* a
      lower sampling rate (while allowing you to continue your other
      processing at 48 or 96 kHz or whatver). It will also handle dither if
      you need it. And lots more.
