I'm trying to use Mathematica to set up a demo of 12 Shepard tones.
(See Gray and Glynn's _Exploring Mathematics with Mathematica_ for a
discussion.) I'm creating a button palette with the 12 tones arrayed
in a rough ring (it's ugly, but it works). The problem is, each time
I play a tone, a large block of output is created in the Notebook
front end (if it matters, I'm using Mathematica on a Windows NT 4.0
machine). When I play the whole sequence of 12 tones, it means 12
blocks of wasted space, each about 2 inches high in my configuration.
All I want is to hear the tones, and not to have to delete lots of
useless output cells.
I can make the waveform graph stop displaying by setting the Prolog to
something, but the output cell is still generated. I can't figure out
how to muck around with $SoundDisplayFunction or any of the related
internals. Seems like I must be missing something obvious. Is there
some way I can play tones without eating up Notebook real estate for
unneeded output cells?
