hi,

this guy managed it to write a script, to let your scanner-sounds play some music. :hysterical:

I had a similar hack working on my Amiga 500 disk drive. This was fun, too. But you where adviced not to use it too often because it would wreck the drive...

I think this is probably an homage by the creators of the ScanJet, to earlier such hacks...

In 1961, the 7094 became the first computer to sing, singing the song Daisy Bell. Vocals were programmed by John Kelly and Carol Lockbaum and the accompanyment was programmed by Max Mathews. This performance was the inspiration for a similar scene in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

see this link about it on the wiki

There was another such hack, making a dot matrix printer to sing (I think it was on a DEC PDP-1 in the 70's). I can't seem to find it, but I will add it here if I do...
