Phantom of the Floppera: Floppy Music x4

 |  |  |  |  |  February 28, 2011


We’ve heard floppy drive music hacks before, but never on this grand of a scale. By wiring a few floppy drives to a  microcontroller, YouTuber FunToTheHead cranked out this beautifully musical floppy drive hack.

By connecting a pair of 3.5-inch and 5.25-inch floppies to a PIC18f14k50 microcontroller, and then interfacing that with MIDI over USB, the modder was able to program the drives to crank out four-tone polyphony.

So crank up the volume, sit back for the next 3 minutes and enjoy a brief musical interlude…
