...typing for peace, democracy, and the glory of the Typosphere
I have a direct drive, but I'd never heard that specifically as a reason why to get one. I am relieved that I have not committed the offence that is a belt-driven turntable.I dearly hope the spiral gods of music will spare you.
DJs like direct drive because they permit scratching, while audiophiles typically prefer belt drive because the belt isolates the platter from the motor, reducing noise.It's interesting how you get stereo audio from a single stylus. They use quadrature modulation, where the up/down motion of the stylus is left+right (ie monaural) while the lateral motion encodes left minus right. The two are summed together in a simple passive circuit in the cartridge to produce left and right stereo outputs.
I had the same thought!
I was able to read this by opening the file in Photoshop and rotating the image as I read. Otherwise it would have busted my cerebellum!
I ipadded it!
Now that I am dizzy from cartwheeling around my monitor --- That is quite a typespiralcast!I love it.
very clever typecast and a lot of work! easy to read though - very neatly done.
Reading this on an iPhone which automatically rotates the image makes you want to smash it into 1000 pieces. Damn you 'smart' technology! I am going to print this at work tomorrow and read it the way it should be read. Olivetti would be proud of you
And there I was thinking that you could turn auto-rotate off. Apologies for the brain-ache - well, not really :-)
I did something similar in 2011: see my post at http://cameronkopf.blogspot.com/2011/09/typing-gone-wild.htmlLots of fun!
Hi Cameron, NOW I remember. We have trod the same path and come out the other side. An adventure in typewriting!
Finally read the whole story. Love the way you pulled this off! And compared typewriters to spinning tables. Really enjoyed it.
