Phil sent us this how-to on using a thingamagoop synth box for morning wakefullness –
Meet Bob. My favourite gal got me a Thingamagoop for my birthday so I named him Bob ( after Mr. Moog ) and I’ve been listening to his chatter now and again day to day. However, I thought he’d make a really cool alarm clock, like waking up to an excited friend trying to tell you a thousand things at once, but in a good way
I also recently picked up a Neverlate Executive Alarm Clock. One of the cool features of the Neverlate Exec is that you can run audio in which it will play through it’s speaker as your alarm.
So I added a switch for Bob’s LEDacle ( can’t have him strobing all night ) and I added a 9 volt adapter jack which runs to the battery leads so I can power him from an adapter. Now I turn him on, switch off his LEDacle, run his 1/4″ to the Neverlate’s 1/8″ input and he wakes me up in the morning, bleeping and blooping depending on the sunlight ( the Neverlate will also increase volume of the alarm if you try to ignore it, or don’t hear it ).

Happy *BLEEP* Valentines!
