DIY Synthesizer - An up close look

Published on Aug 19, 2016 Trance Zero Space

"This is an up close look at what the home-made synthesizer, the 'ESL i-Lander,' can do. The synth is a combination of purposely short-circuited electronics from a toy keyboard and parts from a MIDI keyboard that utilize iPad effects applied to the short-circuited sounds. iPad programs used in this video were Turnado by Sugar Bytes (the effects

Circuitbenders Harmonic Engine PCB - Clone E&MM Harmony Generator Kit From 1981

"Clone of the E&MM Harmony Generator kit from 1981.

The board generates a squarewave at harmonic intervals related to the frequency of the input signal. Its quite tedious and predictable with a monophonic basic waveform as an input, but when you start using more complex sounds and percussion things start getting very strange and nasty. This is

A Look Inside & Live Bending of the SR-16

"In this video, I open up my Circuit Bent Alesis SR-16 in order to not only see the circuit board, but also my circuit bending modification. Afterwards I will show you the circuit bending technique I used to find the best bends. Finally I will show you two different versions of the SR-16 circuit board, one bend friendly and one not. Of coarse I will show

Offset Organism (Circuit, Bent SR-16 & Retroverb)

"Download the audio track for FREE here-
Having fun playing with some odd, off set rhythms. Circuit is going strait to the mixer which is then feeding Logic. The circuit bent SR-16 is going into the Retroverb then into the mixer feeding Logic. The track was then treated with some more verb, EQ & compression."

Watch your volume levels on this one to start.

"Casiotone industrial.

Playing the Pt-80 via midi from reason. An A/R generator is hooked up to the CV input to apply an envelope to the filter cutoff. This comes into play more prominently as the video progresses. The circuit bent aspect isn't really used here and the video focuses on the midi, delay

"Casiotone trance.

Audio is slightly out of sync with the video, but the sun will still rise in the morning.

Playing the Pt-80 via midi from reason. Under pinned with a 4/4 sequence. An A/R generator is being triggered on 16th notes on my eurorack, also via midi. The attack/release is connected to the CV input on the casio, spiking the filter cutoff
