LAST BENT, SCHEMAS AND TIPS
What is Circuit Bending ? 
Matriciel SK-1 A-REV.3.1
I put a LTC1799 oscillator to control the pitch of the processor at the best possible. Really amazing !
Note that I change the front panel of the rotaries encoder ( you can see this encoder working in the older video ).
Soon a demo of the MIDI module of this SK1...

French S&S

I've install the MidiSpeak2 kit from Highly Liquid in a ROM mode ( 2 modes in the same box ).
See on
On the Speak and Spell, I put a pitch  & two disto. I note that in rom mode some glitch don't work anymore, I've to find some other.
I'm working on it actually.

Keyboarded French S&S REV.2

I've install a MidiSpeak2 kit from Highly Liquid in a Keypad mode.
The kit is in a box it plug to the speak & Spell with a 25 pin printer D-sub.

Matriciel SK-1 A-REV.3

I build a midi module SKM2 from Highly Liquid into a little box (opened in the picture).
The module is connected to the SK1 with a 25 pin D-sub (an old serial printer port).
 It can play note and it can control sound bank of the SK1 by using midi in your favorite tracker soft  (I actually try it with Linux Music Studio, a freeware open source clone of FL Studio )

Note that I've removed the 4 ohm speacker because it was scratched.

I'm going to bend the same keyboard, and easily syncronize it, then I could choose to mix them or control them with the computer !

VIDEO Matriciel SK-1 A-REV.2
Wait a little for audio in the video !

I put some really light VST to spacialize the 3 mono line output (Phase, Chorus, Reverb...).















Matriciel SK-1 A-REV.2

I've removed the matrix, because this system cause to much problem. It takes to much time to plug the littles cables, and it always get unplug when I put my casio in a transport bag. So I've decided to solder the 12 Out of each rotary switch directly to 12 glitches/pins of the SK1.
RED rotary = YELLOW rotary, Blue = Green...
I've also soldered Yellow rotary switch and RED one to the "Assignable Pot", to explore the frontier between two or three glitches.
I've just try it and :))))) !
This is a really fun instrument !
So I bought another SK-1 to repeat the same tranformation. Then I'll be able to use both to mix some stranges glitchies loops.

Delysid Dynamike...
It's this red and black fallic designed thing ; it's a very rare microphone voice transformer from Ohio Art 1982, with a lot of differents tonalities and 1 robotizer effect
( a kind of reverb/delay in fact ).
I've put on it :
. 2 fader pitch ( on the back side ),
. 2 body-contact,
. 2 buzzer-glitch lateral pot,
. 1 disto/1 compression pot.

2. Casio Rapman Schema,

I searched a long time and found some really nice glitch, but anyway, I've sold it because of the ceramic resonator pitch* ( too difficult to bend for me at this time ), and to get money in order to buy some other stuff better and easier for circuit bending.

*Now, I know that you can replace the resonator pitch with a stable oscillator LTC1799 !
I've just buy two here and I'm going to try it soon on the "Chaos French Super S&S".

1. Chaos French Super S&S...

An instrument to explore the Chaos...
- Glich A to Glich B pot,
- 18 switch connected to 18 differents glitch,
- 3 differents reset switch,
- Glich C to Glich D pot,
- Cut off Disto pot.
- I'm soldering
an oscillator to change the pitch !
Note that there's no analog pitch because of the ceramic resonator ( a strange blue blob on the circuitboard ).
