Super Speak and Spell

A lot of people consider these 'unbendable' but I have been doing them for years, this layout being the pinnacle so far of what I can do with one. All manner of glitching can be generated, and all with the voice of Brian Cant!

Kawasaki keyboard

Kawasaki keyboard with pitch control and distortion body contacts. Some great sounds can be made with this deceptively simple keyboard. Have a listen here.

'Vortex' alt version

Another 'Vortex'! looks exactly the same as the one below but the bends sound very different. Soundclip here. As far as I can tell the 1st one uses 2 transistors for something whereas the 2nd one uses an IC. Not sure what they do but thats were the bends are linked to in each version.

"Vortex" Analog keyboard

This is my favourite out of all the things I have modified so far. The "Vortex" keyboard, a Circuit Bent Hing Hon EK-001. The original keyboard uses Analog square wave synthesis to create its sounds, and has a drum machine with a kick and snare better than the Roland tr-606 (I reckon!). This is what it sounds like.
Edit-Sold within hours!

Collapsing Star

Another 'Collapsing Star' finished. This one is the normal version (no dog or cat noises I'm afraid!), and is now up on Ebay.

The finished Companion Fuzz. In homage to the original I have kept the distinctive control/input/output positions.

Busy circuit!
