Short links for May 5th, 2008

Some interesting things I found on May 5th, 2008:

# Tape Delay Machine – The tape (which moves counter-clockwise) travels through the left player (Realistic) where it's internal microphone records sound, and then travels to the Memorex which plays back the sound about 3 seconds later.

Realistic Stereo Mate and Memorex XB

A single tape loop runs through two modified cassettes (each which have had one of their left or right sides removed). The players themselves have had there walls (the two in the center, respectively) filed down, so the tape runs fluently.

# Little Helpers – motion sensitive mechanical oscillators – Bodies moving through a space trigger motors, sounding whatever object they are attached to.

# terminatorX – A realtime audio synthesizer that allows you to "scratch" on digitally sampled audio data (*.wav, *.au, .ogg, *.mp3, etc.) the way hiphop-DJs scratch on vinyl records.

# Metronome Synchronization – Synchronization of 5 coupled metronomes using tin cans in Lancaster University.

# Noise Theorem Sound Library – Collection of samples from classic drum machines and synths.
