Enough of this digital malarkey lust over this.

I await the fawning and general lust when they develop the first steam driven 1176.... you know you love it really.

Love to see the wow & flutter and mechanical noise figures on that baby...


My hat is off to guy or gal who designed and built it, though. Some things are worth doing just because...

It looks beautifully made.

BTW... if that doesn't qualify under the US's "Fair Use" copyright doctrine, there's no justice... and maybe no future, too.

I mean it, man.

Now that is the ultimate Gearslutz dream!

It has non-linearities coming out of every orifice. I mean, wow, there's not a single revolution that's the same as any other. You could play a record an infinite amount of times and get infinite variations.

Then again, maybe I'm taking this "nonlinearities = jesus" thing a bit too far. Yeah, it doesn't sound that great. Very interesting project, though.

I wouldn't mind one of those myself for the fun factor, and you might even be able to make something interesting with it by cutting samples onto a dubplate and then recording them back through that, to get really weird, warped one-shot samples that you can then play back in a software sampler. I'm sure it would provide some usable results.
