DIY MIDI Controller from Pennies and Popsicle Sticks

“It’s kinda ghetto”, notes creator Cousin Throckmorton, but a series of pennies becomes a touch interface for Ableton Live and drums in Battery. Apologies if you’ve seen this; I hadn’t. (That or else I had, and they didn’t push the whole “pennies and popsicles” angle.) The $.08 Ableton Live Controller His MySpace blog, 13unluckysongsaboutlove, is filled with more video goodies like this. And we thought MySpace had no redeeming qualities. Ableton Live scene control after the jump.
