    hehe j/k martine... but check this one out....

    Ran across this the other day.... thought you might
    find it interesting. There will probably be a Xmas
    album coming soon....

    Here is a musical engine.

    http://astro.temple.edu/~kmr/Chauffe2.mp3

    The write-up explaining it all: First you'll hear a
    10-cylinder, 750
    horsepower Asiatech F1 engine being warmed up. Then it

    performs a
    rousing version of "When The Saints Come Marching In",

    to the delight of
    assembled pit staff and journalists.

    Here's how the magic was achieved (technical/musical
    details via F1
    Racing magazine):

    As we all know, a V10 engine produces five combustions

    per revolution at
    a frequency per second of 60/(5 x revs per minute),
    which equals 12/rpm.
    Therefore, to work out the revs you need to hit a
    particular musical
    note, you multiply the note's frequency by 12. To play

    a 440Hz 'A', for
    example, you need 5,280rpm. For 'C', use 3,139rpm, for

    'F' 4,191rpm, and
    so on.

    Asiatech's French technicians (the engine, despite its

    name, is derived
    from a Peugeot design) simply programmed their engine
    to run through the
    various rev/note ranges in the correct sequence. The
    result is delightful.

    Great link B! Thanks! :D

    I have a new soft spot for Peugeots now. Not only because they make those great rally hatches but also because they are nicknamed "pugs" over in England... and I love pug dogs. And the engines in the Mi16's are also known for being torqueless. lol.

    Chris- The old Ampeg still needs some TLC. *sigh* And I still need to buy a bass. :( Car parts first though...
