Monotron Duo arrived in the mail. It's smaller than I expected. Runs on 2 AAA batteries. It has to "warm up" for 30-60 seconds after you turn it on! But it makes some sick noises. I need to trim my fingernails.
I'm not sure how I'm going to be able to follow that fingering chart. That little ribbon is soooo teeny-tiny!
There's a button that toggles through 4 keyboard "modes": chromatic -> major -> natural minor -> fretless. So you'd have to use the pitch knob to get a leading tone with the minor key mode, I think.

A: Instruments that challenge your ear

leftaroundaboutThere are of course plenty of strange electronic instrument that are played completely unlike anything mechanical. More than the Theremin and ondes Martenot, the Monotron matches your quest for something with a non-obvious geometric layout: while there is a standard keyboard depicted on its ribbo...

How the hell did he put that chart in a code block??!
Oh, some crazy Unicode $#!%.

Anyone alive?
 
@ReinaldyRafli hi
 
@cjfaure hi there!
 
:D
 
@cjfaure new member?
 
@ReinaldyRafli yeah
 
1:47 PM
I haven't been here for a while
 
@ReinaldyRafli so, what's up (besides generic objects placed higher than you)? :P
 
@cjfaure Have you ask any question or not?
 
@ReinaldyRafli I haven't asked anything yet, but I probably will :P
 
I'm good.. fine.. and quite sleepy :D
 
feels good to stop lurking ;)
has epic epiphany does music.se have an official multiplayerpiano room? xD
 
1:52 PM
I think, no
 
it'd be interesting to have
 
Have you support the MusicFans.se yet?
 
@ReinaldyRafli i have not :c
i've only ever asked 1 question on the network xD
 
@cjfaure Support it, then. Here
 
@ReinaldyRafli I'm a bit scared of the 10 questions requirement. :P
I'm not very into music, like, at all
 
1:57 PM
@cjfaure you don't need to submit 10 question.
I know, because you have like 2k rep in CodeGolf :p
 
@ReinaldyRafli your answers and questions together need to be at least 10...?
 
@ReinaldyRafli I got 1200 of that from just one question, so
 
"I commit to participate actively in Music Fans for at least three months, especially during the private beta, and to ask or answer at least ten questions."
 
1:58 PM
Just click "Commit" and you're in. Just as simple as that.
Just ask any question that you wonder you can ask. Like "What's ed sheeran guitar" or "why did jim morrison blablablaaaaa"
@cjfaure Of course, you got 86 upvote.
@RoryAlsop you there?
 
I don't think it's a site that I would participate in, so I don't want to commit to it...is that a problem? :P
 
Haven't seen any Rorys on the chat yet :/
@cjfaure Nah.. but I just encourage so it'll get to the next phase faster :p
 
@ReinaldyRafli meh :P
 
@cjfaure so, you took programming on college?
 
@ReinaldyRafli I'm 14 xD
no college yet
though i plan to ;3
 
2:04 PM
@cjfaure so HOW THE HELL YOU GOT 2K REP ON PCG????
 
@ReinaldyRafli I've been programming since I was 6 :D
 
Don't tell me it was HTML and PHP..
 
@ReinaldyRafli It was HTML and JS. I didn't have access to the Internet so I taught myself from the few pages that dad had saved to his laptop.
hah, it was funny because the example pages didn't use variables so I didn't know they existed, and tried to use anchor codes in the URL instead. xD
 
I was 11 when I met HTML, JS, CSS, and PHP for the first time.
 
i started with Python at 11 :D
PHP a bit later but around the same time
 
2:08 PM
It was 2010 when I'm 11 :p
That's when I started hacking some games :D
 
nice :D I usually go around patching up Java code now :c
 
It was JS and XML hacking with an app called Fiddler.
So, I hacked Pet Society (if you do use facebook) with help of some of my friends.
 
I've never tried stuff like that, I probably should :P
 
@cjfaure Don't, just don't. You can't hack stuffs like that easily these days.
 
@ReinaldyRafli k :P brb
returns dramatically
my left hand is so close to being able to stretch a 12th
