Modular "Computerized Arcade" Sequencer

“Computerized Arcade” is a vintage sound & light toy from the ‘80s made by Radio Shack (my favorite toys and electronics manufacturer). This prehistoric Monome-type device has got some huge color buttons and one of the simple games featured in the box is a wonderful step sequence capable of composing your own melody riffs.
That’s exactly where I focused my mods; adding a pitch fader and a Trigger out this toy became a super alternative sequencer to control my modular synth…plus it’s soooo nice to watch these buttons running!
