An experiment, samples from my atari punk console loaded into a midi sequence

Very cool experiment. Sometimes I find these things to be more effort than I'd like for the result. This is still a very cool thing, though:) Nice!

I was toying around with the idea of making a ghetto-rigged "keyboard" of sorts with just a few spst switches and a potentiometer for each tone (so each key can be tuned or bent). But then I ran into the problem of multiple tones at a time.
If I wind up bored (and decent enough with a soldering iron) enough, I may just go ahead and make an APC for each key and see how that goes. big_smile

Currently trying to work out a way to do a keyboard input, or midi but for now the samples will do! Reminds me a bit of the Yamaha chips

Whoah, neat! I had wondered about the feasibility of this when I made my APC. Thaks for giving us an idea of what it sounds like, I'd like to get into a little experimentation with 555/556 based homemade devices. It's also a cool little song, too. ;p
