My HP Scanjet 5P performs Ode to Joy

If you set the Scanjet to SCSI ID 0, then hold down the green ‘scan’ button on the front whilst powering on the scanner, a stepper motor test routine will activiate. The test moves the motor back and forth to create the « notes » of the song.

Mario Theme played on Stepper Motors with an Arduino

The sound you’re hearing is coming entirely from the motors. The song information is taken from a MIDI file that I composed. An Arduino provides the necessary commands to spin the motors at the required frequencies.

Visa made a program that converts notes from a .txt file into G-code, which makes the milling machine play the music.
