Circuit Bent Modified Casio Sk-1
via this auction
"This auction is for a Bentstruments.com, circuit-bent Casio Sk-1.
If you want to truly enjoy the benefits of a circuit bent instrument, the Casio Sk-1 is the most versatile of all machines in the genre.
This one is ready to apply endless layers of textures, pads, and innumerable freshly morphed original sounds into your music.
Circuit-bent SK-1's create incredibly strange sounds and beats.
Ive added a seperate LFO circuit that animates the sounds and sampled sounds for modulation.
Also, an opto cell that allows for theremin type of pitch work and total chaos in other patches.
Another mod is an led with ON/OFF switch that adds a modulating envelope glitch.
In addition, it has 9 bend switches that add strange modulations, algorithmic brain wave oscillations, insect emulations, whacked out drum beats, chaotic bass, syncopated rhythms, flanging, echoing, looping, the effects go on and on for incredible combinations only limited by your imagination.
Ive added a control knob on the front that allows you to dial out the drums. The ability to eliminate some sounds is invaluable to say the least.
It also comes with an ATARI joystick port (joystick NOT included) that renders INCREDIBLE effects in each direction the joystick is moved as well as the button for cool effects that mimic some vintage Atari video game sounds.
Also, theres a pitch control knob with switch that allows you to choose between the original clock or a precission oscillator . This pitch knob greatly effects pitch several octaves. Im using the getlofi ltc1799..."
