Nice sound, good for learning. I prefer setting the PinkNoise amp/mul a bit lower though.

sounds interesting! but i got a "exception in real time: alloc failed"-error after about 2 minutes runtime.

yep - sorry not hugely tested - just train journey tunes. think a few of my uploads have this issue... can't think of a logical fix right now apart from dropping voicecount to 24 and comment out those delay lines. likely make a huge improvement.

bad headphones + train sound = huge amplitude (should have really listened to it properly before I uploaded, but you're right @erik ).

supercollider is great on trains eh? :)
