2008 singing pumpkins

2509 18
So after getting the board last christmas and looking at a house full of pumpkins all year long it has finally all come together.


Now hopefully my neighbors won't shoot at me with all this craziness going on every night.

Looks great! :)


I have a pumpkin choir this year also, using my LOR. I want some ambient sound effects/music playing. Are you going to run your show constantly or have some "down time"?
I've got 5 different songs set up that will be running pretty much back to back on Halloween night. I'll put in a few second delay but not too much.

Right now I just pick one song and put in a 5 minute delay between loops so I don't drive everyone too crazy around here.

My wonderful girlfriend is to blame for this... she bought me a k47 board last year for christmas. Little did she know the can of worms she was opening up.

The software is VSA 3.0. It's kind of clunky at times but it gets the job done. I tried several methods to get the software to pick up the pulses but none came even close so I've done them all manually since then.

One big suggestion I can make is to start very early. I did most of the programming early on in the year so I wouldn't be all stressed out if it came down to crunch time. This also gave me plent of time to trouble shoot any problems at my own pace. If I had been doing this in October it there might have been a string of pumpkins flying out my front window.
