Clever device. It's a lot of fun to go out in the garden with a pair of headphones and setup shop next to a pumpkin for an hour. I can't really tell what the plants respond to (other than interference from human touch), but I would compare the randomness to wind chimes, not the sound, that could be anything that you want to connect, but the gentle clamoring of notes in no particular order. I'm already interested in purchasing a second kit to try some different soundscapes and I would purchase from this seller again.
This product was exactly what I was looking for, something to generate random MIDI notes under a scale with the input from natural environment. It arrived with all the items needed to start, all I needed to do was plug in my MIDI cable and attach the sensors to something and then out poured all the notes.
I had a little bit of an initial problem in that my MIDI cable was a bit wider than the hole in the 3-D printed box. Additionally I couldn't seem to set a new MIDI-channel (which defaults to 1). So I msg'ed Manuel and he said to ship it back and he would do an update. I got the box back and he had 3-D printed a new one with a wider hole as well as updated the firmware and printed a new manual with easier ability to set the MIDI-channel. Super smooth and very helpful! Now everything works beautifully.
Well worth the price and really satisfied with the purchase as well as the whole transaction. Thank you!
I need entropy for my small headless servers - previously I've been using ubld.it TrueRNG, but I couldn't properly reboot my servers when I left them in the USB-port (I had to unplug them, reboot and then during/after startup I could re-insert them to have them start properly).
This is not a problem with the Infinite Noise TRNG + they provides entropy a bit faster! Installation/compiling was pretty straightforward on Gentoo Linux.
I will certainly choose again if I decide to expand my serverrack :)

I Believe This Is A Better Version Of A Midi Sprout. Its Very Well Made & Easy To Use. Ive Had Alot Of Fun With It Since I Received It Two Weeks Ago. Shipping Took About Two Week From Germany To California . I Would Definitely Recommend This Device To Anyone Looking For A New Experience With Sound & Plants!
All around a great experience. Manuel shipped quickly, the product worked as described and came with good directions. Furthermore, Manuel was a great communicator and very helpful. I sent him a message and he responded right away with help. Recommend!!!
Manuel was great from the beginning of the purchase to the end. He also was generous with his time to work through the troubles of Christmas shipping challenges. The device looks great. well made, and comes with everything he said it would.
