Gameboy linked hardware sequencer

sequencer

Thanks to Create Digital Music for pointing me to the awesome work of Gijs Geikes. This is his latest sequencer creation. It is designed to get its clock signal from Little Sound Dj running on a Gameboy. The sequencer controls plugin modules that are attached to a parallel port. Here’s a great sample of the output. He’s got schematics on his site, which are easy to comprehend when compared to his bizarro board etching. One of the plugins is an earlier project: The Tape Sequencer. Have a listen to that too.

  1. not related to hack, sorry:

    anyone have any links on some hacks for a dead iPod? anything would be cool: revival, mod, making it into a new thingy, anything would be cool.

    thanks :)

  2. wait, hack the dead iPod into a dead badger…for unholy music streaming via AirTunes

    that being said, you can mod it to house something else. people are hacking Altoids cases to house iPods? How about hacking iPods to hold Altoids?

  3. Yipes, I’ve hosed another poor mate’s bandwidth.

    Anyway, stay tuned, I’m going to try to re-host this on my site . . . I can handle the load, I think.

    Too bad; the music is great!

  4. i recently took apart my old Gameboy Color and noticed that at the top, there are two LED’s. i was just wondering if the Gameboy Color was originally meant to be able to send and recieve data remotely via its LED’s. if it is able to do this, how do i find the program code in the gameboy so that i can enable transferring data with its LED’s?
