bbc wobbulator Radiophonic Workshop on the Web

you would make a good dalek Radiophonic Workshop on the WebI was excited to see the BBC recently bring their Radiophonic Workshop using the Web Audio API online, combining JavaScript and HTML5 to simulate some classic sounds of 1960s-era equipment, notably their Wobbulator (above), and the Ring Modulator used to create the voices of human-exterminating Daleks. One of the tunes the Radiophonic Workshop is best known for is the Dr. Who theme song, and it’s incredible to consider that was 50 years ago now.
