There was one you could play with at the Expolratorium here in San 
Francisco <http://www.exploratorium.edu/>. It may still be there. It 
is a rotating cylinder with several gears with different ratios of 
teeth on it. You had three little levers, each of which was riding on 
one gear. Two of the levers were sort of click sounds, and the other 
one was a ding.

A software equivalent would be pretty easy to cobble up in Max.
