ScrubBoard: Scratch Audio Tape in Real Time #MusicMonday
This is amazing. A DIY open-air triangular tape loop that runs backwards and forwards with a tape transport run by a foot pedal. So you have two hands to scratch and playback. DIY wizardry from Jeremy Bell via Bobby Owinski’s blog
Over the past year, I’ve been working on the “beta” versions of my ScrubBoard tape scratcher and my Doublestop Rocker midi controller. At long last, I’m ready to unveil them.This is a huge thrill for me, because I managed to achieve a level of mechanical sophistication that I had always assumed would be out of my reach as long as I’m making everything by hand.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
