The FX8010, is a DSP architecture, designed for realtime audio effects, designed by
E-mu, around their EMU10K1chip. One key feature of the architecture, is not providing any branchinginstructions, but rather running the whole program in a "sample locked" constant loop, ie a constant number of instructions is executed per sample. Instructions are given conditional executionflag in similar to some RISCprocessors (notably the ARM), thus providing a constant runtime.
