I built an Ambika to join my family of Walnut Mutables!
I messed up the LED holes in this one, but the laser engraved front panel graphics and text came out really well. The back panel is acrylic so I can admire my electronics handiwork and Olivier’s amazing design any time.
I took the opportunity to give my Shruthi a knob upgrade, too.
and here’s @briansuda’s translated hieroglyph version! https://optional.is/required/2009/12/03/welcome-the-entire-land/
@BurntToast_DFIR fantastic, thanks! Any idea where I can get a copy of the CD?
EDIT: I found it, the website is a bit labyrinthine.
Dramatic happenings at the mill last night! A huge dead tree fell over the bridge, causing a minor earthquake. Nobody hurt apart from a fence (which fortunately doesn’t even belong to us)
@briansuda what on earth is “Gender: Weak Female”?!
I’ll be at the Mazurki Festival Tagowisko Instrumentów (Musical Instrument Exhibition) with my instruments on Saturday the 28th. It’s not on the English programme, but is on the Polish one so is definitely happening! Come and try out my gurdies, and see my (experimental) MIDI system and hybrid synth in action!
Hurdy Gurdy #7, finished and picked up by the customer!
3x chanters, 2x drones, 2x trompettes, 4x capos, 4x sympathetic strings, 3 channel active preamp system. Very happy with how this one came out — in fact I need to retro-fit some of the electronics changes onto my own instrument… No more 50Hz hum!
Anyone trying to buy stackable ("Arduino-style") headers from eBay, "elec_mall2012" is the only Chinese seller I've come across who actually shipped stackable headers. All the others shipped normal ones.
The other sellers were always very good about refunds, but shipping takes so long that it's still a waste of time. Would recommend buying from elec_mall2012, or just shelling out the extra few euros to buy the headers from a US or EU component dealer.
