Talking How cool is this!

ever wondered what an F1 engine would sound like as a musical instrument?

check this out, the engineers at Asiatech programmed their warmup sequence to play a tune. Brilliant!

when the saints go marching in

Wow. At first I was wondering what you were talking about, then suddenly the song starts. What do they say - Life begins at 17,000 rpm, right?

Hey, if the Asiatech engineers spent some time to make the car faster instead of making a song with the motor they might do something.

Just kidding, that was cool. Would've loved some video of that though.

from another forum:

According to Tim Blair in Oz, the Asiatech folks have programmed
their F-1 engine to play music. I quote:

Load the link and press play.

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

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. And think of the
possibilities - BMW's F1 engine, which howls all the way to
19,050rpm, could rip through the entire Hendrix songbook.

Even better: imagine a massed NASCAR choir performing "The
Star Spangled Banner"! Being eight-cylinder engines, the
frequency per second would be 60/(4 x revs), which means
you'd multiply the note frequencies by 15 instead of 12: 'A'
would arrive at 6,600rpm, 'C' at 3,923rpm, 'F' at 5,238rpm,
etc.

Mark my words, someone will be getting rich at Daytona next
year selling a CD of NASCAR patriotic anthems. Send some of
the royalties my way.
