The nerd quotient of Silent’s project is nearly off the charts.

The sound created by movement of the head, which is moved in steps with sufficient frequency. Interface description can be found, for example HERE. Simply activate the station by providing a low-to DRVSB0 or 1 (depending on whether we have the tape from the cross and to which the plug is connected to the station) and choose the direction of head movement (low \ high on DIR) and the trailing edge of the head movement will cause STEP one step. ATMega microcontroller controls the whole.

  4. This brings to mind a program on the Apple][ back around 1980 or so called Little Tan Box, which was named for the Apple disk drive enclosure.  It didn’t produce music though.  It told the brief story of a sexual encounter using displayed lines of text on screen synchronized with a combination of timed head seeks and a chattering head reinitialization for the climax.

    I remember a demo for the Comodore 64 floppy disk drive doing the same. Not playing Imperial March, but another tune. Anyone else recall that?

    Yeah C64 Could do something similar without extra hardware, just software.

    This is seriously one of the best things ever.  I think it only appropriate that you recolor the faceplates black.
