Plastic Player 2

An open-source analog interface for digital music

A follow up to the original Plastic Player – my device for fusing the best of analogue and digital music – this time made smaller, with a 3D printed enclosure, completely new electronics and published as open-source.

When I published the original I got a lot of emails asking if it would ever be made as a commercial product. Whilst I'm sure it might sell a few units, the journey going from a prototype to full product, complete with back-end system not to mention all the support that would be needed is a big one, so instead I decided to redesign it and publish all the details on Github , where anyone can go along and make their own and of course improve on it.

I use mine every single day and it's as real joy to do so. I'm looking forward to seeing what people do and how they make it their own.
