Very nice!! This should be possible to fit on a pretty small pcb, iluminated switches would make it even more compact. And the parts are pretty cheap too! I'd vote for a kit ;)

...and as mentioned: midi clock sync would be nice. I guess clock output would be easier then slaving it.

If only more coders would care more about their code. Sometimes simplifying your environment is all you need. Just to quote Brian Kernighan "The most effective debugging tool is still careful thought, coupled with judiciously placed print statements."

People would be just as annoyed if this was a post about debuggers versus print statements.

I've come across your article because I was pondering on the same ideas and I just did a google search. Nice article.

So I built one of these, and have the following programmer that I got working with AVRDude: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9825.

Now the million dollar question...it looks like the Atemga controller I used (http://www.mouser.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=ATMEGA88PA-PUvirtualkey55650000virtualkey556-ATMEGA88PA-PU) is not supported directly by AVRDude? Any ideas on what might be required to get this working?

I also think a Kickstarter would get a lot of support if you have the time and wish to manufacture MIDI compatible finished products.

Jag skulle köpa en i alla fall!

Sometimes I wonder what is your timezone. I mean, how it is possible to combine all the daily duties and so much work on such "trivial" things (no offence here). Well, anyhow, it's brilliant.

Does anyone happen to know the origin of the piece, and/or why it has the name Fratres? I've never come across this in my readings about Part and I am very curious, it being one of my favorite pieces to listen to (and play).
Best to all,
karl@freefriends.org

Fratres means brethren (or brothers). Hence when priests or ministers get together it is called a Fraternity (now that we have women priests it should be a Maternity!)
The pulses on the claves/percussion is a Renaiassance call to attention/prayer that the monks (or brothers) would have played using wooden semantra - which prefigured the use of bells in the Eastern Church)

No, sorry, it would be sorority - not maternity!

Bravoooo! This machine is the most awesome thing I have seen! I am a developer myself and I have programmed some Microchips in the past, I think it would be awesome if you could open-source the code, on github (www.github.com) or a similar CVS, this way we can easily add additions / share new sounds or whatever. also, this would defenitely make people go wild if it were to be posted on (news.ycombinator.com), a mutch visited website in the hackers community. Man, this thing is so nice, please let us make it even nicer!
