Arduino co-founder David Cuartielles shares pics of his new interface for sound exploration, the Peacock –

It is an instrument for live performace or personal exploration of both live and digitized sounds. You can get sound from an SD card or record it through its mic-in. The sound will be looped and affected in different ways by different effects and digital filters.

The device is built around Cuartielles’ Smapler audio sampling board with amplifying circuit and orange LEDs for good measure. The design seems reminiscent of classic antique radio and speaker cabinets, but realized in laser cut plastics – very cool. Read more about the Peacock on the BlushingBoy blog.
