Back in january I spent some time exploring simple electronic circuits for sound, following the lovely handmade electronic music. One of the greatest discoveries was voltage starving, which gave a great degree of unpredictability to any circuit.
I recorded some explorations. I find it interesting to imagine what is happening inside the circuit to make the sound vary so wildly, as I was just slowly turning up and down a couple of knobs.
This has been relatively straightforward, but, as with the actionscript to java conversion, I’ve run into some nuances between languages and I’ve definitely learned the hard way (read “wasting some hours of my life”) why pre and post increment operators can be evil.
