So, I've just registered today at instructables, I was here for one thing, then I kept surfing instructables for another! Anyway, I've been looking at DIY Synced Music LED, but most of them don't really look synced. They move sometimes, but not in a regular form, and intensity (or anything changing/moving according to change in music rhythm) doesn't look really good. Is there any Instructables of highly synced music LED?

Hi guys, Are there any DIY souls here who compose/record/produce their own original music or belong to any independent band? It would be lovely if we could all share our music here! I'll start off with mine. Feel free to check them out: www.pitchfeather.com www.facebook.com/pitchfeather Cheers, Alberta

I just entered the "I Made It" contest and I was trying to post an embedded code so that the song would play automatically. Of course, it didn't work! -_- Any HTML geniuses out there? I have the codes that are provided by soundcloud. Here is my post: https://www.instructables.com/id/music-mashup/

There was much fear and freak out [when the box was opened]. But cooler heads prevailed and a phone call was made. “Hey Matt, did you order metal objects of a dubious nature?” Find out what they did, and how, here. (And what music would you store on it? My first thoughts were Mr Kiss Kiss Bang Bang or Twisted Firestarter...)

Ok, i just want to do a bit of a survey here, ill just start with my favesfavorite music band:shop boyz- their song "party like a rock star" was awesome, its part one of my theme song. their remix is cool, and is my second part.............favorite music solo artist:i would declare this a tie between Chris Brown and Soulja boy. Chris brown's "kiss-kiss" was tight, especially on the t-pain solo part, his other song was good too...........Soulja boy made the tight song "soulja boy tellem". He also made a little spin- off of the song, which is the song "soulja boy with soulja girl". and his last one "YA!", i liked that one, it expressed his real feelings as a celebrity perfectly........................ oh, and DONT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THE DANCE....................so what is your favorite song artist?

Hi there, hope you don't mind me linking to my website full of the weird/cheap homemade instruments i've been tinkering with for the past 2 years or so. I love to make new things from old things, so most of what I do comes from re-cycling, re-purposing and using scraps of materials. the website is here: http://vulpestruments.blogspot.com/ i'm hoping to put up more tips and tutorials on how to do certain things when it comes to amateur lutherierery. If anyone has questions or queries about any of it, i'd love to try and help out!

Don't know if this specifically needs to go in music but, whatever. for christmas i made my brother a (somewhat poorly constructed) lap steel guitar. seriously, it wasn't that good, but it worked and it was more of a "can i do this project" kind of thing, plus he has a friend who is an ACTUAL luthier so he's going to "redo it".... anywho, i made said guitar using zither pins for the tuning pegs and it got me to thinking. with the zither pins you could theoretcially have a guitar string of any length and use the pin to set that string to any given tone on any particular scale (say the functional length of the string was only 3 inches....you could still theoretically set the tune on that string to a semi permanent desired tone). so, with a bunch of short lengths of various guage strings you could create a guitar music box (probably more of a music barrel but, whatever). now, normal music box has the tone pins (not sure what they're called...but the tuned slivers of metal) stationary along one (or more) fixed planes and a revolving "picking" drum that strikes each pin to make the tone in the order that it needs to be in a piece of music. for whatever reason. so, combine these two ideas and you get a player guitar, or a guitar based music box, whatever. so, obviously this could be acoustic or electric. my personal preference is to lean towards electric, so that's where the question comes in. a normal guitar pickup has 4, 6, or whatever magnets fixed within it's coils so that you can pickup the signal from 4, 6, or whatever strings that are strung paralell(ish) across the guitar. for the music box concept to work (as opposed to a true player guitar that plays across the strings) the individual string pieces (that are all individually tuned etc) wouldn't be able to be parallell to each other like a normal guitar. they'd either be in line on the same plane or spaced out in odd ways (i've got an odd concept for the actual construction...where the strings do the moving and the "strummers" stay put). so, does a single magnet pickup exist? that could just be wired up into the rest of a normal electric guitar's circuitry? or would i have to build such a thing from scratch (and subsequently how would i do that)? would a normal electric guitar's circuitry be able to work the same with more than 6 pickups in play (thinking of a cheap one from a pawn shop...that's what i built the slide guitar from)? also, taking song suggestions and subsequent individual string tuning plans *i do know that there are "better" ways to make a self playing guitar that uses the normal guitar form factor and robotics and such....but this seems more fun. plus, i might make it into a wind powerd thing...electric guitar windchimes anyone?

I recently found these extremely minimalistic speakers online and after repeated failed attempts of trying to figure where to get the materials to make my own (or at least where to get the ceramic cones) I was wondering if anyone here could offer me some guidance on how I could go about building my own similar speakers. I would love to buy these speakers myself whereas they are a work of art to me, but sadly to a kid in college $500 is an entire year's worth of ramen noodles. Thanks for all the help in advance. Here is a link to the official web page and in case it's broken I included a picture of the speakers below. http://joeyroth.com/ceramic-speakers/

After some tech problems, the Salvador Dalì music video is finally out! The music and video is all written and performed by Gin Gerani, a friend of mine. And I made an appearance as a barbarian! :D The song is all in Italian, but the music is very catchy and I'm sure you'll enjoy it! Have fun, and dance with Salvador Dalì! :D

Free mp3s (or mp4s if you roll that way ;) ), yay!! I can't remember for the life of me where I first saw this, or I would surely credit the source (lifehacker? gizmodo?), but in any event MS [is giving away 1000 + songs] fo' NO MONEY! You can download them and also listen to them online. What's the catch? Isn't one, just ads on the site. Cool beans.I know. It's Microsoft. I know. Shhhh. I know.But. There's actually some good stuff there! There are some artists you've never heard of in your life, and some more well-known ones (like Lemonhead, to name the only example of a few that I could've thought of ten minutes ago. :-\ ). I love some of the songs I found in their electronica/dance section - I love ((HYDE)) by ORGAVIN and A Foresaken Few (no, that's not a typo) by OC Lovely. There really does seem to be something for everyone, though. Get them here!

Does anyone know about these small music boxes that play music? If you seen one, they're these small things that play notes in a looped sequence using small metal plates (kind of like a finger piano). Can anyone try to make something like that? Sorry for the small details if anyone's confused.

Quick question; what are the rules regarding the use of music in videos posted on Instructables (or on YouTube, through Instructables)? I ask because I'd like to post sound clips and some may contain copyrighted music. Is there a 30 second rule or something? Do I just have to give credit?

What is your favorite genre of music? Who is your favorite artist? What is your favorite song? This is basically my attempt in seeing how many people like what type of music and if rap is becoming more popular than anything else (it's all I see on TV anymore). Please answer these questions or ask more about music in general here. This will also help me get to know you all better and hopefully cause more people to join this group.

Hello, I am in college, and I thought it would be an interesting idea if I had a LED light bar behind my futon to light up one of my walls. I have seen some projects on here about making a light bar but I am a little confused and I have no idea how to set it up to music. I was just wondering if anyone knows what I am talking about and if I can get it on the cheap. Thanks.

I have a pet tree frog, Slippy. He likes to croak along with certain types of music, like minimalism and hip hop. I think it would be great if he had a way to turn on some music by like, hopping on a switch. I think he could learn. I have some ipods and a tape player. I can get more if need be, but I can't blow too much on it.

I ride in the San Jose Bike Party. One of the things that I like is the music. People with all sorts of boom boxes, dj systems, and lighting mounted all over their bikes or trailers. I would like to build something like that and I am checking out the many interesting projects listed here. I am wondering though, is it possible to speed the music up or down to match the bike speed, maybe with a magnet on the wheel and a sensor on the frame? I don't know if it would be a good idea, but the thought of a dirge when we are slow and chipmunks when we are fast is just funny to me.

I recently built the simple circuit that everyone has seen on Instructables on how to sync LEDs to music using the 3.5 audio jack from your computer. I had a couple question on how to improve the performance. The lights bump to the music accordingly, but it has to be a profound change in sound for the lights to really look cool. (Like from silence to a bass hit) Is there a way to improve upon this? To make the lights respond in a clearer way when there is a lot of stuff going on in the song? Perhaps a different voltage? (Currently using a 9v battery to power the system) The sound on my computer has to be turned up quite high for the circuit to respond. Is this normal? Thanks in advance.
