"Modifications:

10x Point Patch Bay.

Fantastic Sampler. The patch bay is bolted and re-enforced to the base of the unit to facilitate rack use.

The sample was recorded on my Juno 60 synth.. The circuit bent sounds are fairly intense, highly digital and tonally aggressive (at least in this demo).

The possibilities are endless."

Although a DD-10 won't yield to rom glitching, a number of features have been added to it to bring it up to spec with some of the more unruly machines listed in the shop. It takes on it's own unique character and is now unlike any of the others. Two oscillators



Circuit Bent Kawai K1 demos

Watch your volume levels on this one. Starts out loud! Some cool sounds though.

"Demos from a circuit bent Kawai K1 synth. Mods include a 24 way ROM destruction patchbay, and a LTC1799 based clock speed/pitch knob.

Surprisingly the modded K1 is incredibly good at BBC Radiophonic Workshop style sci-fi atmospheres. The kind of drones and 'sounds of the future' you'd hear in the background on
