Black Deck – A homemade Optigan-like instrument

Posted by peahix on September 14th, 2011

I was recently sent a link to The Black Deck, a home-brew optical disc instrument that works on the same principle as the Optigan, though the design and implementation are a bit different. It appears to mostly use graphically-generated waveforms, and also it only has 8 tracks per disc, as opposed to the 57 tracks on an Optigan disc. Very cool stuff!
