A virtual radio module for Eurorack

Image from matcsat, Muffwiggler forum

This is not a radio. It is a sample player that behaves like a radio.

A digital way to simulate the radio-powered compositions of John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen as well as Don Buchla's voltage-controlled radio experiments. It uses a Teensy 3.1/3.2 to play files from an SD card to simulate a voltage controlled AM/FM/Shortwave/Time Travel radio.
