Introduction    top

Our final project is a NES-style chiptune player that changes its playback tempo in response to heart rate measurements from the user. The chiptune player successfully generates four individual channels: pulse, triangle, noise, and delta modulation. After audio mixing through a hardware circuit, the resulting mono signal sounds as intended, with no waveform clipping present and the PWM carrier frequency blocked. Songs are played by the chiptune player with all four tracks in sync. In affective mode, playback tempo is adjusted to match bpm measured from the user.
