Magnavibe

The official video, short but sweet, totally got me.

I made a little daughter board to have the led/ldr assembly by itself.
I tried many different combinations of led/ldr.

In the end i picked an ultra bright blue led and a massive plastuc encapsulated ldr i put aside cos it was too big from my last univibe project!

Remember the tip of the led has to be looking the ldr in the face. Heres how i made a little lightshield.. from a midi plug, chopped both sides. Inserted the led at the wider end, and mounted the led in its holder in reverse: granted stability.

Works a charm.
Sounds of the work in progress:
