I guess I'm a bit confused about the "sound of gates" discussed here. Gates are
logic with only 2 output states, on and off (OK, I'm ignoring X's for now). These
should create some form of pulse wave coming out. Now, I can see different ∗chips∗
with different setup and hold times that could effect the shape of the pulse wave
and certainly some of the duty cycle and there for the sound, but I don't think you
can classify a ∗type of gate∗ as having a particular sound to it. What am I
confusing here?
