Pics and Build Notes on the Knob Laden noystoise YAMAHA PS3 V2

You might remember the knob laden Yamaha PS3 V2 video posted here. For those interested on how it was done, noystoise just posted some pics and build notes here. Beautiful work. It's hard to believe there is a Yamaha PS3 under there. It looks like a Roland JD-Xi on steroids.
