Phantom of the Floppera, floppy drive organ
YouTube user FunToTheHead turned a bunch of floppy drives into a musical instrument.
Test run of my (d)iskette (O)rgan doing Toccata & Fugue.
People have made floppy drives sing before, but this is my personal take on it.
Features two 3 1/2″ drives and two 5 1/4″ drives connected to a PIC18f14k50 microcontroller. It interfaces to any MIDI source via MIDI over USB. Straight MIDI would also be possible with an additional small circuit and some minor firmware changes. This initial version can respond to all 128 MIDI notes, and pitch bends +/- 2 semitones.
