What is SFXR?
While reviewing the Sphere 1.x docs I came across a bunch of sound-related functions with "SFXR" in their names.  What are these functions for?  Some sort of DSP filter system?

I thought SFXR was 1.6 - I have an api.txt with it in but it's not in the one that comes with 1.5 if you download it now.

It was an interface for generating sounds by fiddling with some parameters - I never used it and no longer have a working version of 1.6 so can't comment further.

Yeah, I knew it was 1.6, I was looking at the api.txt in the git repo.  I just wondered what it was.

What Rhuan said - basically, a sound generator. I never use it myself because the sounds that come out of it tend to be very similar and overused in indie games.

I was looking at that as well. It would bw nice to see some of its required functions implemented in miniSphere.
