Learn How to Play Music with Your NMR Spectrometer

I always thought this site by Walter Bauer was a lot of fun. The difference frequency between an NMR resonance and the carrier frequency is used creatively to make music. Listen to your spectrometer!

In fact we used to plug in a computer speaker to the spectrometer and listen to it for shimming: if the FID sounded like static on a radio then you had a lot of shimming to do. Once you get a nice FID it sounds like ringing a bell! Very cool.
