Whether you are a modular synth enthusiast or just like the idea of rad electronic jams, we can all go after the idea of crazy electronic devices with buttons, dials and patch cables. The Doodlestation is an excellent example of this, built by ৷ [Love Hulten].
It has a custom 37-key keyboard that lets you input an input musical note in a simple way, along with a smiling animated MIDI visualizer that a man uses his face to shoot a rainbow. A thermometer is also built into the chassis, allowing your hand to control the sound through the magic of that layer. Even better, the steep part has a custom-built echo of the tape and you can even see the mechanical parts working and the mag strap twisting. That’s fun.
The custom hardware is paired with a series of off-the-shelf devices that add their own functionality to the mix. It includes a sequential OB-6 analog synthesizer, a mug DFAM drum module and a hologram microcosm loop and a glitch box for further noodling possibilities.
We like a good musical project around these parts; We’ve featured some great other projects for live electronic jams before. Video after the break.
