Be the next big DJ, Turntable

Using SAM Labs' Bluetooth powered blocks and awesome app, SAM Space, you can make your own turntables! Using the pieces and hooking them up to Midi (a popular music editing software) within SAM Space, you can warp, twist, remix or compose music as you please!

Made with SAM Blocks

You will need: Cardboard , Scissors, Glue, 2x Light Sensors, Dimmer, 2x Sliders, 2x Buttons, 2x Pressure Sensors.
  1. Create the turntable by cutting cardboard pieces into the shape of a turntable, leaving spaces for the SAM Blocks to live (to mimic the controls). You should end up with basically a rectangular, shallow box and a 'disc' on top.

  2. Insert the Blocks in the spaces so they're secure.

  3. Next, program Your SAM Blocks! In SAM Space, turn on and drag all the blocks onto the interface. Connect them to a midi out SoftSAM by connecting the dots. Then, open a music program, Ableton for example, and program each block with a different sound effect.
