The Scrempler is an instrument for live sampling and manipulation – meant for improvisation with other musicians.

The Scrempler was designed using OpenSCAD, Inkscape, and MakerWare, using a lasercutter and 3D printer to make the parts:

lasercut plexi, triplex, 3D printed feet. Piezo microphones pick up the sound made on the top wooden plate. Sensors are home-made pressure sensors from conductive foil and foam – their data is transfered using a Sense/Stage MiniBee. Livesampling is done with SuperCollider – additional controls are currently coming from a Novation Nocturn midi controller.
