 The randomness of the Music Thing Modular Turing Machine,  shrunk down to 6HP.  Alan retains all of the same functionality as the original including the connectors for the expanders.

While this module has little to do with the original Turing Machine (by Alan Turing), it is a shift register based sequencer.  You cannot program this sequencer, instead it builds random sequences that can be locked in.

Alan comes tested, calibrated and ready to bring random voltages.


Three good resources for getting started with Alan:

  1. DivKid’s video on the Turing Machine
  2. David’s video on the Alan
  3. Turing Machine manual
