Ambient Reel to Reel Tapeloops : Live Looping #MusicMonday
The bad part about dead technology is that it often gets thrown into landfill. The great part about dead technology is that DIY musicians turn them into awesome stuff. Here’s more from Fahmi M. via Synthopia:
Here’s what they have to say about the technical details: “Macro-oscillator module synth sound and field recording samples recorded to tape loops, play on tapedeck, process to effect pedals (looper, eq, delay, reverb). Create ambient music, build sounds of reel to reel tapeloop, looping layer by layers, like architecture.”
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
