    Is there group talking about the various pickups and/or micing and associated wiring? Are there any groups or dialog going on about how to strategically place all the pickup vs micing of elements.

    Hello Martin - this is Don Falk in Los Angeles. I am addicted to your videos and the progress of the Marble Machine X. I am beyond impressed with your skills - flawless musicianship, "zen" engineering, learning software, speaking multiple languages, maximizing the resources of NO-clip, making videos, and working tirelessly. I have nothing to contribute to your efforts but admiration and the hope that you don't burn out. I saw how grinding that organ at Speelklok Museum kind of kicked your ass a little bit, so please Martin take good care of yourself physically and mentally and know that many others are cheering you on. I hope you will play Los Angeles on your tour and I would love to come see you. Best wishes!

    Hi, Im Dylan, I Live in Cape Town South Africa, I am a fellow maker and thinker, If there is anything, and I mean anything that you need some eyes or hands on, I am willing to put in as much effort as I can towards helping you in any way possible. You are a visionary, and I would be honored to be even an unnamed uncredited contributor, I just want to help bring your vision to life.

    at the end of this video you mention trying to implement a 'Ketchup effect' on the project to make it go faster.
    Ketchup is a newtonian fluid, meaning, if you hit it, or jar it, the substance becomes more fluid at that location, and pours faster.
    this is why you tap the bottle at the opening, not the base.
    so if you want to apply a ketchup effect to the project, perhaps you might try applying some kinetic energy to thee portion which you wish to become more fluid.

    Am I the only one that does get how the guitar works cuz if the vibra phone goes on the left in the middle and the drum stuff is in the middle is and the guitar goes through the middle when it spins wouldn’t it cut it in half? (Of course that could be just where he set it down for the video but if it doesn’t go there then idk where the space is to put it in the first place)

    You are complaining about small problems popping up - thats improvement compared to your concert at Victoriateatern a year ago, where you complained about big problems with your first marble machine (the door and the precision, mainly)
    keep going, and small problems are way better than big problems

    It's inspiring to see all these people unite behind such a beautiful project. You showed us how beautiful humans can be.
    So take some time for yourself. Enjoy winter and don't worry about us.

    Sorry, Martin, for stealing your energy and motivation! D: :D
    Your videos - all that creativity and all these ideas you have, how you enjoy small details and how you put jokes into things which other people would just look at as rubbish, how you keep working on big projects - is extremley inspiring for me. In the last weeks I got so many ideas from your videos for things which I could make and I spent my whole Christmas holidays in the workshop to handcraft something and in making music.
    I remembered in what you said about talent and hard work - not only in context of learning basic skills but also in context of creativity - and that gave me an immense motivation to just start projects. I kind of feel "alive" like the first time in my life xD

    • Vindfjallaey
      Vindfjallaey 12 dager siden

      So: first I want to say thank you, for making the world a better place ^-^
      And second: Don't be so strict with yourself. Everyone needs holidays - breaks from the daily work - and some time in the year without any plans of things which have to be done as soon as possible. You are working on the MMX every day for nearly 2 full years now and therefore you don't see the big progress that clearly anymore, which you are making.
      I hope you had a wonderful time in Sweden where you could let your thoughts free without any stress. So bear up, take your camera out to a private walk in the nature, take some time to make new spontaneous music and delight in all the many great people who support you. Then look back at the machine and see all the improvements compared to the first machine! ;)

    When MMX gets finished, could you play the Marble Machine Prime's original tune and then do a remaster for MMX? I am going to college for engineering science and I have always enjoyed your videos, and I think what you are doing is amazing. How you go into detail on things is astonishing, and how you make your videos something that everyone can learn from is admirable. You have truly inspired me and my goal of engineering. I can see that you will have a very bright future. Love the videos, love the drive, love the involvement of other NO-clip creators, and I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT'S IN STORE FOR YOU FOR 2019! GO MMX!

    No matter what happens, all your subscribers want to be there for it. Your mind is amazing, and your will that has drawn so many people to help and support this project is just as awe-inspiring as the machine itself, if not more so. These are the most important stages in development and we understand. Not only have you been able to resolve the setbacks that have come your way, but a number of them were issues in design rather than pure mechanical failure. In the face of something that worked but didn’t feel right, you took a deep breath and tackled it again until every single detail is not just functional but until it conveys the character of the marble machine and properly contributes to the beauty of the whole. This takes time and causes frustration but it is so worth it to see you ecstatic when you present new pieces. I will always look forward to the next episode, and to the world tour at the end of the tunnel. I wish you the success you have worked so hard for.

    Projects like this has a natural tendency to overwhelm one with small problems all over the place. It's normal.
    It is a healthy thing, and a sign that everything is about to come together.
    Try not to solve every single tiny little problem that surfaces. Instead concentrate on what matters, and set the mind to accept some unsolved minor problems on the end result.
    My boss usually say this: "If something works flawlessly the first time, you have put way too much time on it."
