Dot Matrix Printer Covers Foo Fighters Song in Amazing Video

Got an old Dot Matrix computer collecting dust? Got some free time on your hands?

If so, you might as well have some fun and convert it to play MIDI files like this one. Creater Dan Carroll explains how he converted the 24-pin printer into a MIDI compatible sound generator. It can play up to 21 notes at the same time with up to 16 channels, each with their own volume and pitch. ¬†Check out the video and let this fun version of the Foo Fighters’ “Everlong” take you back to the joys of tearing off those perforated edges.
