THIS GUY TURNED A 1920's TYPEWRITER INTO A SYNTHESIZER

Reminds me of the The 1953 Charlie Douglass "Laff Box"

I Turned a 1920's Typewriter into a MIDI Controller
video by William Sun Petrus

"whenever a hammer contacts with the "live plate", it will send a signal to the arduino. The arduino recognises which hammer has been pressed and fires a signal into my PC via the cable, and into Ableton. Ableton sees some MIDI information and understands that it needs to trigger that specific sound. This song is composed of 17 difference sounds, played live for you, right here, right now. This typewriter is actually just a small part of a much bigger project, so there's still a lot more to come!"

[How To Play] 1920's Typewriter EDM MIDI Controller

"The reaction on this mini project has been incredible - i'm surprised we hit the 100+ likes mark so quickly! As promised, here is the Ableton project file for you to play with! It's super simple and you can play this on any MIDI controller with buttons/keys on it. Rearrange the samples to fit your hands better, make a remix, perform a cover, build that thing you thought of a few years ago. There's a midi helper file inside the project with everything you need to know if you get stuck :)"
