To operate, simply load the required raw materials into the two mouth-shaped hoppers at the front, and press the ‘MIX’ button. After a few moments, music will begin to pour out of the dispensing slot. Collect the music in a large jar or beaker, making sure not to spill any of the delicious sub-bass, and enjoy at your leisure.
