Who needs old floppy drives and dot matrix printers to make music. Move into the 21st Century with a Simple! :D

How long did it take you to compile that?It is like getting the perfect touch tones off a phone to make music.That is truly art.I have to show this to my son.

That was not me who did that. Here is the article I found it in. Sorry for the confusion on that! First one I have seen that was done on a Printrbot.

That's pretty awesome, as cool as people rigging up dot matrix printers to play music.

He needs to write a program that takes notes and produces gcode. Brook could commission it.

Back in the dark ages the University I worked at had an IBM 1401, and we had several card decks that could be loaded to play Christmas music on the 1403 printer. In those days booting music meant something.

Notice he had a missing leg and the simple was tilting?

Time to order up an orchestra! Wonder what happened to the Printrbot bot farm from the Kickstarter days? Might need to switch an axis or two over to NEMA34s to get better bass.

Tried to modify it to work with my Jonbot, but I can't even open the darn GUI!

Would be awesome to play some music with my Jonbot, that would impress some people when I take this thing out in public. Anyone know how to open/modify the files?
