Dangerous Prototypes is having a competition based around building awesome projects using discrete logic components (7400, 4000) as a major part of the project. I had many ideas for submissions for this competition, for example, Pong (or another basic videogame), Game of Life, a real life color detector with readout to hex and an RGB LED. However, I decided on making a drum machine for this project.
I spent this weekend designing the overall project and constructing various parts of it. Currently I have the clock and Multiplexer both up and running and I am confident I can get the rest of the circuit running by October 21st.
Here is what the project currently looks like:
