Well now I've sorted out the sound problems on my computer (it was a ground loop problem), I can get on and do stuff.
in this video I use my 555-based pulse generator as a class D amplifier, a schematic is included near the end of the video, the quality is surprisingly good and clean, but the chip becomes unstable if I connect a speaker directly to the chip's output.
I also experiment with attempting to record onto tape with it connected up to the head in an el-cheapo tape transport that came out of a toy. Again the quality is better than I thought it would be, a little distorted but much better than a recording with no bias.
