Sentient Machine
« on: April 10, 2016, 03:54:46 AM »
This is the Sentient Machine I built with the board from Parasit Studio.

The Rate knob flashes with.... well... the rate.  ;)

Arnie's eye lights up in effects mode.

Here's a demo... not me playing.

I want to get the red LED to be just a pin point of light.
I need to mask it somehow.

You could have used a 3mm LED to make it closer to the "eye-sized" red dot, but I bet you can simply put a dab of Hot Glue on the tip of the LED, then paint it all black and, after dry, remove the hot glue to reveal the clear plastic.

Thanks, it actually IS a 3mm LED and it has a flat top, not rounded like most.

The LED fits in a 3mm hole quite snug, and the flat top is flush with the underside of the water slide decal.

I'm gonna try to mask it... I have an idea about how to do that. Will post a pic...

Here it is with the LED masked.

Looks better in person. The camera has a hard time capturing this.

Neat piece of kit and excellent build!  I hadn't heard of this one yet.

Thanks guys!
It's a modulated resonance filter.
Sorta like an auto wah but the "wah" does not react to your playing.
Thus the modulated part.
Hard to describe. Best to listen to the demo.
