DIY Dual-Cassette DJ Rig, The Tapetron -2

Reader Andreas Monopolis shared this video demo of The Tapetron -2, a DIY instrument based on the idea of the early samplers.

The instrument is based around two modified portable cassette players that can play pre-recorded tapes or loop tapes. The controls for each tape are: on/off the motor, sound play /trigger, volume, motor speed, Dc — battery power, line in, line out.

You can see more of Monopolis’s projects and performances via his MOCM Youtube channel.

  1. Inventive, brilliant idea. I thought he was going to flip the tapes over and play side B.
    Short, snappy video. Best entertainment I’ve seen in a long time.
