Music inspired by floppy drives using Sam Archer’s Moppy software

Floppy drives, though nearly extinct now, once ruled portable storage. In addition to their capacity to store well over a megabyte of data in some cases, the drives made a unique and possibly annoying sound that any experienced geek will recognize. Application engineer and former college-band member Sam Archer decided to take this sound to the next level and programmed a drive to actually play music. You can do the same, using his “Moppy” (short for musical floppy controller) software.
