Ok, I have to post this quickly, as the men in the nice white coats are coming to take me away to the nuthouse. I'm guessing this font will get me some funny looks and raised eyebrows at the next Typophile get-together.

Don't forget the upright italics.

What you need is a one-pixel sep between characters to make your 3-value clumps evident. Nice as the wavy line is, it becomes WinAmp-irrelevant in quantity, even the (extra-clever) bold version. Do you have a version including letter AND graph in one glyph? cause that would be crazy valuable, white coats be darned.

also, to paraphrase TW, Unibody is dopetastic.
I do NOT recommend an italic because for pixel characters this requires an overlap of approx. 1 px which would further wipe out the graph fidelity. But hey, it's your brain.

Hrant and his uphill-upright italics battle.
I think this is a great idea, and i like that the bars look like eualizer bars, connecting the concept of letters as visual references to sounds.

Good work

Right now all punctuation is represented by a simple dot. I'll most likely adjust this as soon as I have an idea to support it. Mostly just wanted to get this base set out as a proof-of-concept.

It seems a good example of an upright italic bitmap would be that of Underware's unibody. But maybe that isn't what you need. :^\

Codes is cool.

Reminds me of something the NoFont guy once did. Even though (because?) he still owes me a t-shirt.
