Marble Loop Completed - Marble Machine X #85

Wintergatan - 5 dagar sedan
Hey all! I am still working intensively on getting the drums to play a beat for the first time, that will be a milestone, the first real proof of concept. Meanwhile I thought I´d show you the latest marble path additions, the loop is now closed. Also in this video you can see the double marble release on the kick drum, and a new lower marble gate that allows the drums to repeat notes faster.
The funnel in the video is temporary, we are building the real funnels in the US right now, this funnel spits out marbles from time to time. So I have spent a lot of time picking marbles again :) It looks very animusic though.

By the way - the marbles are not stuck inside the demagnetiser, the design is made to make the marbles slower through that section. I always see comments around that, Have a great day everyone and HUGE thanks for following the project. I am having really fun building right now, and things are moving faster than before at least for the moment. Take care!/ Martin

Wintergatan hey love your work. You should film at 60 fps video to prevent motion blur. Would also be a much better viewing experience to see the gears spinning and not blurred. 🍻

From an engineering POV the only concern I would have is the rate at which the marbles are traversing through the demagnitizer/acrylic 5-way and back to the top. At present, intention or not, when all 38 channels open and play rapidly, it would seem likely to me that it may be difficult to resupply the "magazines." With only the drum channels live there are moments where stock is heavily depleted. I think for better or worse it is valuable to consider increasing throughput in the acrylic 5 way splitter / demagnitizer. Otherwise it looks like you've done it. Hats off, sir.

Amazing works. Maybe to achieve something you really like is the meaning of life. Thank you for sharing all the design details and music.

I love how it can't do much yet, but it can already do some things the original marble machine couldn't

Have you ever thought of making a vlog channel going through the life of wintergatan? It would allow us to see what else you are working on and what you do. The channel could keep you and your viewers connected and help with fundraising as well.

I am getting concerned what if the stage is not perfectly leveled when you take the MMX on a tour the marbles could fall on floor you might want to pack a adjustible stand for MMX with you when this beautifull instrument does its first live debut

A truly fantastic feat of engineering and innovation. I cannot believe the shear number of man-hours invested in this project. I feel like have been part of the project just because I have watched almost all of the videos.I can hardly wait to hear the completed machine...Waiting.....Waiting... :-)

Looking on Martin, remembered....
The Professor calls the student to the chalkboard and asks him to draw a circle. Student, takes chalk and in one motion, draws a perfect circle.
Professor: Are you an artist?
Student: No, I was in the army and for 2 years twisted meat grinder there.

looks as though you need a slightly deeper, or larger capture cone for the marbles, as some are bouncing back out due to the trajectory difference when they hit the drum after several successive hits.
