A Modern Music Box
Twinklr is a music box that you can write music with. You add notes to the screen and, just like an old music box, when you turn Twinklr’s handle, it plays your melody. You can add and remove notes on the fly. Play slow or fast, forwards or backwards. It also has MIDI Out, meaning it sends tones to any MIDI enabled instrument or interface.
This is the first version of Twinklr. Since December 2015 Tom has been working on a new version of Twinklr, as part of the MV Works cohort at Makerversity. This new version is built for Raspberry Pi and has a much expanded feature set. It will be launched in June 2016.
