licking the touchscreen

Post by martin » Mon Feb 05, 2007 12:35 pm

has anyone tried this? i did, and i have to say, the touchscreen tastes yucky. but oddly, the method is quite expressive.

i wish there was some way to make it taste better. there should be stickers with different flavors. bagel supreme, belgian waffle, or perhaps fudge supreme.

i think you could slap some lox or choco spread on there.

egg-nog would be a cool flavor!

martin, the tongue expression pad is not a tongue expression pad.

And actually it was meant to taste this bad because leaquids are not allowed on synths and mos other electric equipment.

:) :roll:
keep on turning these Moog knobs

i am experimenting with techniques that allow for using the touchscreen effectively. my right hand plays a melody, my left hand modulates the sound with the wheels, and either my nose or tongue plays the touchscreen. it seems the most ergonomical way to go. how much further downhill could it go?

:wink:

The Voyager sound so much more warm and analog when you lick the touchscreen while standing barefoot in a puddle of water!

Its great to love your gear, but the day I make out with my Voyager is the day I seek professional help.

I also think that would be the last straw with my girlfriend....

another method

Post by nigeynige » Thu Feb 08, 2007 10:00 am

I @m going to train my dog Rufus to use the touchpad....his nose is wet and the will slide nicely across it. :arrow:
The only drawback is I'll have to clean it with a wetwipe afterwards JUST IN CASE I decide I want to taste the touchpad for myself...... :lol:

Possible alternative method maybe having a hat with a probe on it, with a prosthetic finger attached.....and then whilst nodding in a kind of rocking out fashion, you can operate the touchpad.....

HOW MORE SILLY CAN WE GET HERE?

it would have been cooler to have a ribbon controller under the keyboard. but no, it had to be right there where most people have their noses or tongue poking out.

:wink:

Of course, there are even MORE creative ways to play an instrument. I bet this technique would work well with the touchscreen:
