Light box amplifier

The title says it all. Same pcb from the phiamp project, just added a light box x2 == quadraphonic party. Speakers are full-range. Using HoaLibrary (High Order Ambisonics for Pure Data) as a spatializer (don’t forget to invert phase of speaker if they point at each other).

a custom built actuated guitar controlled by pure data. 3 micro servo are strumming the strings and pure data take care of the global pitch shifting. the humbucker is really far from the bridge to avoid getting noise from the magnetic field (there’s still some). included is a relay to turn on high voltage stuff (a light, a disco ball and whatnot).

i think i made this project to showcase puredata fx capabilities, for this i had to make it controllable from the internet (streaming webcam / audio on pdpatchrepo). finally there’s a chatbot (alice) / tts when only one person is connected to the stream.




i don’t think it is useful without the actuated guitar, but here’s the patch:
