Gameboy linked hardware 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. 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?

  2. 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?
