Thomann's Packaging for 2 Shure N447 needles

Some interesting things I found recently:

# The one thing I don’t like about Thomann

Good example of a company that probably hasn’t heard of green packaging or cradle to cradle yet (at least it doesn’t seem to care much)…

Looza @ Mindboggling writes:

Every few months I need to make a certain hifi-related purchase. My retailer of choice for this is of course thomann.de, hands down the best european retailer for audio, music and hifi-related stuff. Great selection, great prices, amazing service.

However, there is one thing about thomann that really drives me insane now that I experienced it several times.

# My Blofeld + Ableton Live + Lpk25 + AudioCube Couch Potato Setup

Mark @ Modulate This! writes:

I wanted to create a small couch-friendly setup where I could play the Waldorf Blofeld with my little Akai LPK25 Controller and an AudioCube. Here is how I set it all up.

Electro Harmonix V256 Vocoder

# cl516: Electro Harmonix V256 Vocoder

Calvin got himself an Electro Harmonix V256 Vocoder:

Simple setup with a Shure 55SH and the V256 set to HI gain. Segments alternate from internal synth to Vermona Perfourmer as the carrier. I didn't play around too much with the "reflex-tune" or other features. I just like the vocoder part. The audio file has more detailed narration.

Best audio demo I’ve heard in a while.

# Exploding piano alarm clock

From Make: Online:

Here's a video of a nifty Exploding Piano Alarm Clock that was recently made in a graduate product design class at MIT. One of MAKE's former interns, Jake McKenzie, was part of the team who created it. They based their project on the traditional piano drop held every spring off the MIT Baker House.

The premise is simple and aggravating: the piano and its color-coded legs explode once the alarm goes off. The user's task is to gather up all the parts and put the legs in their corresponding color slots. All while the alarm annoyingly beeps at you. The rub: the color slots move around, so you have to be agile (and awake) to get the correct legs in the correct slots. A knob on the bottom allows you to adjust the difficulty by speeding up the rate of the color changes.

After years of working on the Texas Instruments Speak&Spell I have come up with a design that incorporates the best bends into a rugged, utilitarian and affordable design.

Casper Electronics Speak&Spell
Casper’s mod comes with an atari controller port, guitar strap pegs, locking 1/4″ audio jack, pitch adjustment body contacts, sound activated LED, 3 glitch switches, LOOP switch and adjustment, HOLD switch and adjustment, pitch adjustment, industrial reset button… what more do you want?
