A two channel WAV-file sample player based on a WAV Trigger from Robertsonics. Custom circuit and code. Arduino. The keypad and 7-segment LED-display are reused from a broken Prinztronic Micro calculator from 1973. The design is inspired by this calculator. My moniker and logo is also inspired by this :)
Behind the custom designed and manufactured front panel, is a modified MFB-522 Drumcomputer. An all analog drum machine, similar to the Roland TR-808, only tiny compared to the original. I gave it a 808 inspired design and colors, and the tempo goes to 11
Modified SammichSID with custom front panel. A stereo MIDIbox SID V2 synth, with two MOS 6581 SID-chips from the Commodore 64.
Modified SammichFM with custom front panel. A four channel FM-synth, based on the Yamaha YMF262 (OPL3) chip.
Modified SammichSID with custom front panel. A stereo MIDIbox SID V2 synth, with two MOS 8580 SID-chips from the Commodore 64, and Feedback Mod for added Acid Squelch.
Yes, it does sound different ;)
Circuit, code and design from scratch.
MIDI controlled GI SP0256-AL2 speech chip with pitch control. Plays 59 allophones used in the English language. Used in many different 8-bit computers and peripherals from the 80’s to make the computer speak.
