Click artifacts on noise channel

Post by Nallebeorn » Thu Jun 20, 2019 1:28 pm

I'm having some issues trying to play a constant mode 0 noise sound. There's a kind of clicking artifact at regular intervals (see attachment). It's most noticeable with high frequencies (small $400e values). I'm just writing the same value to $400e every frame, length counter and envelope is disabled. Is there any way to get rid of these clicks?

You are hearing it loop after 32767 samples. This is normal behavior.
