Productive day. Got the 8-step sequencer using the 555 timer and 4017 ICs running. Haven’t plugged it into anything yet, but am excited about the potential.
Also, played around with the Hex Schmidt Trigger IC to play two oscillators with a couple of photo resistors and my Altoid flashlight.
Anyone interested in this kind of thing should really check out Nicolas Collins Handmade Electronic Music. It is the most fun I’ve had in a long time. 😀
