Music Machine 8 uses
the short speech that Neil Armstrong made when stepping on to the
surface of the moon.
‘That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind’
The music machine takes each word of this sentence, along with both the
pause that Armstrong left in the middle of the sentence
and the beep sound that was a feature of the communications between the
earth and the astronauts, and plays them in a random order.
In one shot mode the machine plays each event only once (there is
therefore, an extremely small chance
that the sentence will be played as it was originally spoken).
Looped 1 mode is the same as one shot mode with two variations.
Firstly, the program plays indefinitely until stopped by the user and
secondly the beep only sounds at the end of each cycle rather than at
any point within it.
It is looped 1 mode that you are currently listening to.
In looped 2 mode the machine plays indefinitely until stopped by the
user and has no restrictions on when any event can sound,
so it can repeat the same word rather than allowing each word to appear
once before resounding.
