It feels like its fake...

How come the floppy reader can make such good sounds ?

its a combination of the Reader-head position and the speed and direction of the Magnetic-disc turning. i think..

in the bad old days, they used a voice coil to position the head on a hard disk drive. looks as if it is making a comeback

It's absolutely possible, you just have to think like a geek (and like electronics)..
You know? Ask the question 'why not?' instead of asking 'why?!?!' 8-)

Back in the days there several programs that could make music come out of the 1541 floppy drive for the commodore 64.
It could be bad for the drives head alignment though :|
