Who knew Pi can sound so beautiful? This incredible video shows a pianist playing a song based on the digits of pi.
The last time we had occasion to feature 8 Bit Weapon in this space, our man Seth had hacked his Nintendo Power Pad into a music controller. Now the team is back with something a little less strenuous — but no less musical — for all of you budding chiptune artists out there. The Digital Music Synthesizer for Apple II is a wavetable synthesizer designed specifically for live performance. Not only does this bad come with ten voices (including bass, trumpet, square wave, sawtooth wave, and sine wave), but sequences can be recorded for a later time. But wait, there’s more — there is no monitor required. If you’ve ever had to lug an Apple II monitor to a dank performance space on a weeknight (and who hasn’t?), you understand what a sweet setup this is. Supports your Apple IIe, IIc, IIc+, or IIgs computer with 80-column capability and at least one 5.25″ floppy disk drive. Get yours now for $19.95 — but not before checking out the demo after the break.
