A little live performance using my DIY Optical Theremin, a GameBoy Advance SP as a drum box and some strobo leds.
I have downloaded the program but i dont get what a flash card is?? Nice tune please reply!!!
you need a flashcard for the GBA SP. A Flashcard is an programmable cartridge where you can put one or more rom images. You can find all the informations here:<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.gameboy-advance.net/">http://www.gameboy-advance.net/</a><br/><br/>Before you got a flash card you can play with the rom using an emulator.<br/>
Where did you get the Gameboy drum machine thing? by the way this is really sweet... I'm looking at real moog theremins on musicansfriend. $350!!
there is a free program named Audile:<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.sortasoft.com/audile/">http://www.sortasoft.com/audile/</a><br/><br/>thanks for your comment<br/><br/>bye<br/>
How did you get the drum thing onto your sp? please reply! please, please, please, please, please...
the audile software is a free rom image. You need to buy a flash card to put the rom image in.

I'd love to know more about how you did it.
Hi, thanks. I started with the Christofer Optical Theremin here:<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.oldtemecula.com/theremin/rs-opticaltheremin/rs-opticaltheremin.htm">RS Optical Theremin</a><br/><br/>and then I've tried various photoresistors/photodiode. I've tried both ultrabright leds and IR ones to beam the optical sensors.<br/><br/>Finally I've added this filter to make the sound smoother and a simple transistor based amp to make it louder:<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.oldtemecula.com/theremin/sixthvoice/index.htm">Sixth Voice</a><br/>
That's awesome, but same here, I would like to know more about how you did it, I could probably do this for my friend, it looks neat. :-)

That was cool. Obviously it's not going to be on my top 20 music list anytime soon, but the concept is certainly there. Nice one
