A Brief History Of The Musical Floppy Drive

While the true origin of floppy drive music is uncertain, we do know that one of the first videos on YouTube of a “singing” floppy drive was posted on September 16th, 2007. The video features a Commodore 64 floppy playing “Daisy Bell” from a pre-programmed midi sequence.
In June 2008, a video of a floppy disk playing the Imperial March from “Star Wars” was featured on Hack A Day, Today & Tomorrow, Think Artificial, Buzzfeed and Make Magazine. The following year, artist Mike Kohn launched a section on his personal site to exhibit his floppy drive music work, featuring Bach’s Invention 13.
Since then, hundreds of different videos and tutorials have been posted all over the internet showing their floppy drive music creations and sharing coding tutorials to create your own playable floppy drive.

100+ Inspiring Presets & Total Control In One Stylish Package!

DESIGN
Sampleso has custom built and programmed the circuit that converts MIDI information from a keyboard controller to the necessary information for the floppy drive to play a musical note. This circuit was based on an Arduino Uno and was coded specifically for this project.
The drive was carefully sampled using state of the art equipment, using acoustic techniques to give the instrument a bigger, fuller sound.
After which Sampleso implemented the samples onto their signature custom Kontakt engine, and added some exclusive features to compliment the floppy drive sound, resulting in a one of a kind instrument that will definitely keep your creativity flowing.
All the controls in the main interface can be assigned a MIDI CC with a simple right-click.
PRESETS
Select a preset from the 100+  that Sampleso designed or create and save your own presets.
Filter your preset search by sections, tags, and category.
The preset menu also lets you preview each preset while loading it.
BEATS
This exclusive feature lets you sync the floppy engine cycles to your host’s tempo.
This gives the instrument such an amazing rhythmic effect, you won’t want to turn it off!
