Phantom of the Floppera – Floppy Drive Music

Dig out the old 386 and 486 desktop computers out of the garage we now have a use for them!

“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.”
