Note: This project is current a work in progress. This page is likely to change as I progress.


The goal of this project is to build a set of “musical” floppy disk drives. That is, to be able to use a floppy disk drive as an instrument that plays notes via MIDI. Using a few of these drives I can even play entire songs.




The software that drives the musical floppy drives is Moppy by SammyIAm. You can find the GitHub repository here.

Note: As of May 18, 2017 this project has stalled and I’ve moved on to other things. That doesn’t mean it won’t ever get finished, but I am not actively working on completing it at the moment. Sorry!
