Touchscreen Scratch Machine

Simon Kilshaw built his own Touchscreen Scratch Machine for Ableton Live using a series of six connected Arduinos. This looks like a lot of fun, and reminds me of Playgrounds. Because Ableton Link is open to all manner of devices, he was able to integrate it into the invention!

thesoundtestroom: Casio VL-1 (VL-Tone) & MS-70CDR = Epic

Doug Woods from thesoundtestroom shares some of his own history while exploring the classic Casio VL-1. He notes that the original price for the VL-Tone was around £30. According to the Bank of England inflation calculator that is £110 today, or about $140. While many synths of that era have proven to be a solid investment, you can actually pick up one of these today for less than $50 on eBay.
