Here’s a video of the CD machine in action. Playing/pausing of the CD is done using the normal buttons on the CD player.
Sorry about the player stopping suddenly at the end. That happened because I was making the one “dangerous connection” on the machine. When connecting the first and second pins on the bottom row, the CD player crashes. This can be easily fixed by turning the anti skip feature off, then back on, as shown:
It’s also a handy way to quickly get out of “ridiculous” sound mode quickly to start manipulating the sound from its normal state again.
And there you have it, the Sony Discbitch – a circuit bent CD player. I hope you all enjoy and have fun if you choose to build your own!
Until next time!
