How it works: Cadium Sulfide (CDS) cells are inserted into oscillator
circuits as variable resistors affecting either pitch, volume or both.
The greater the intensity the light that falls on the CDS cell, the
less resistance going to that particular circuit. The frequency that
light is projected on to any one CDS cell is determined by the number
of holes that pass by per single rotation of the can. Each oscillator
has its own independent ring of holes. Since each ring of holes has
the exact same circumference ( the circumference of a can) and is spinning
at the exact same speed, all four patterns of charging and discharging
will always overlap in a repetitive pattern--the beat. Different beats
are created by different can/hole configurations. --Sound of each oscillator
can be independently changed with filters built into the circuitry.
--Light is equipped with dimmer which can vary the total resistance
going uniformly to all oscillators. This has a nice and unpredictable
Improvements in 3rd prototype
1. Variable speed (0-9 rpm). Reversible, permanent magnet motor.
2. Flimsy gas lines (black tubes) have been replaced by sturdy copper
fixed in permanent position. This will allow the changing of beats to
be as simple as changing the can.
3. Equipped with felt DJ pad, which, in conjunction with the higher
torque PM motor, allows the can to be "scratched" and "backspun" much
as modern DJs do with vinyl records.
4. Comes with hard protective carrying case.
"It evolved out of previous instruments--Spit Machine and Disco Light
Machine--into Drum Buddy. -Q.
