I've not been around much, sorry. Been in my shed and playing some gigs!
Anyways, I made this: link
Hope you like it. This is currently a 16-out (proof of concept) version. The controller card is capable of controlling 64 outs, so more to come....but I could do with some funding, as it all costs turd loads!
Anyways, there she is

lol.........foooook, so i did
I wish I could press the like button more than once.
ps plz don't sell my email address.
ha! don't think I'd get much for one email address (you are number one on my list )
by the way, i've got big plans for this. *imagine* 64 outs, all standardised / decent solenoids, increased power, longer cables and a gig in a venue where I get there 3 hours early and wire up the undersides of the chairs, the lampshades, the bins, etc..............plus: because it is modular (the outs are standard phono ports) you could do that one night and then the next night do a midi controlled light show......blah blah
-- it's gonna be built into the funny perspex dome thing you can see in the background at the start of the video --
enuf power in the soleniods to trigger piano keys?

sure......well, not the ones you see in my video BUT with a car battery and some homemade solenoids (or some BIG expensive bought ones), yes! It would probably need to use relays then to jump to the higher power.....AND (anticipates deflating JDG in a BIG way), NO VELOCITY................
i do bang core!
haha...well, I guess you could do cowell style cluster fuck no worries...
nice job, mad respect.
are the kick and distorted snare audio from the laptop or from the octopus?
sweet. sell it to these guys link and make millions writing "love" songs
seriously tho - this is my new favourite cephalopod
great stuff1 and nicely presented, looking forward to seeing how it develops
(in the demo vid its not completely clear with certain sounds, whether they're digital or not. maybe because the 'basic' drum sounds are pretty outlandish)
