Turning off *both* motors at the end of a note, to get rid of those clicks...! Nice one, Linus.

What pulse width(s) are you using? Also, looking at the video, the head is positioned on one of the outer tracks?

Anytime Mike :)

I wonder when I'm in bash and erasing text with backspace what stops me from erasing the bash prompt at the beginning of the line?

Eventhough it is a bit more complex (because bash works with a builtin readline library that handles backspaces) it basically boils down to this: the prompt is a simple string that gets printed before reading in your input. If for example you'd run in bash:

while true:
printf "my prompt $ "

you'd get the same situation. I guess you would not expect the 'read' command to erase the printf output string. In other words: the prompt is not part of the input buffer but a simple string that gets printed before each read call.

Just a plain 50% pulse width.

Yes, I'm starting from track five. I have to start from a known track to get consistent timbres, and it's easy to reset to a low track number.

Also, during the free coasting that occurs after every note, the head tends to drift towards higher track numbers (for some unknown reason). So I need some margin in that direction.
