    Wow - quite a site, quite a group. FASCinating - above is a preview - go there and say, "!"

    Thanks, Raymond - But I don't want to go home and forget everything I've learned, I want to run away from home and join them!

    I got this site when searching for a picture of a "windmachine". Never seen one (or heard, except here in GPO).

    That really is a very interesting site - They have huge mechanical instruments they've built which are triggered via MIDI. Pipe Organs et al.

    But did you find a picture of the Wind Machine you were looking for?

    I first saw one of those when I was a kid, because they're still standard equipment in good sized theatres. Big barrel lying horizontally, covered with coarse canvas, hand cranked so the barrel turns and the fabric scrapes against an edge of wood - Great wind sound which changes depending on how fast you crank. Very old theatrical machinery, also used in orchestral settings.

    In making the GarageBand Icons for GPO, I looked high and low for a good representation of a wind machine. Finally found one. My link above shows you how to make your own.

    Cool, schneb - Thanks for the link.

    I'm glad I looked - this one is built exactly the Opposite of what I described. In this, the barrel has the bare wood, and the canvas is laying over that. Interesting! Now that I'm thinking about it, I realize I've seen them built both ways, most recently in the way I described-it was used in a stage production here awhile back.

    Gonna build one, Raymond?
