Re: Your recent purchases:

To commemorate another trip around the sun I recently picked up a cheap Gotek drive to make an old sampler function. Installed FlashFloppy and am now chuffed to bits.

Re: .

Holy bait & switch, Batman! Are you punishing me for steering clear of MISC? I made it very nearly halfway through that video, but I'm going to need some Dutch courage to make it the rest of the way through. It seemed like he was building toward something interesting and not implausible, but then he...

That's a fun stage, let the Sokoban skills flow!

On a more serious note, if your components are numbered in a coherent manner laying that out will be a breeze, since your pots are points that are already defined.

Re: Noise lamps

Also, NEON is a noisy fucking lamp (I learned this by recording an acoustic band in a bar ages ago). Voltage stepped up to maintain illumination. Boring old wall frequency buzz though, could be more interesting with a variable frequency source.

Re: Noise lamps

I was actually hoping you could explain what's going on in that video Ahh, I see. I missed the technical question context. hahahaha -How is this wired? She explains it briefly but I can't visualize how the process works at all. -Is the lightbulb somehow getting power from the output of the amplifie...

Re: Noise lamps

chochambeau, your table is ready... :lol: I don't know if that recent purchases lamp housing yet qualifies. I think dying ballast fluorescent tubes are my first run choice in a noise lamp. Strobes are louder, and I suppose could be triggered from a random source. Is an arc a lamp? Beyond that, the ...

Re: Building Noise Instruments

^ A car spring might be too stiff on its own. Might work better if welded down to a plate at the bottom, then have a big lump of something welded to the top to give it a bit of extra mass.... *edit* Although from experience, car springs are not always easily weldable (if at all) so you might have t...

Re: Building Noise Instruments

You want low end? Size matters. Long springs, long strings, sheets of metal, lengths of pipe, etc. Any pleats in a surface (like the structural ridges in your aforementioned garbage can lid) are going to push your resonant frequencies upward, so wide uninterrupted curves make life easier... ..at lea...

Re: Making a beautiful Larsen

For an acoustically coupled wide pitch range operation, you're going to need to mitigate highly resonant stages that will act as a bandpass (which kind of anchors your frequency at a certain point). Contact microphones are generally pretty spiky when it comes to resonances, due to the means by which...

Re: Audio Electronic Circuit Schematics

lukesolved.jpg finally figured out for a friend how to wire up an on-on-on dp3t switch as a 3-way. This will work... right? the dark blue diagonal line = a jumper wire unrelated to the blue switch position lines, my colour code is confusing here. Your goal is to connect the sections to ground/commo...
