Circuit Bent Kaossilator – KAOSS BOX

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEnpG0FMarc[/youtube] Our friend Freeform Delusion has shared this awesome video of a modified Kaossilator. Complete with a break-out box that contains switches used to circuit bend the memory rom chip thus creating distortion and glitches in the synthesizer playback. Also inside the break-out box is an LTC Precision Oscillator Kit used to speed up and … Continue reading Circuit Bent Kaossilator – KAOSS BOX

Kaossilator CV Modification with 4017 Sequencer

Our friend Nathan Phelps has been working hard to cram as much stuff into the Kaossilator as possible. Based on this original pitch modification, his latest attempt features 555 Timer and LTC Precision kits with internal potentiometer controls and CV input. Synth Video Example: [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CnzNIw3UEs[/youtube] To make room for all of this the RCA board had to go, … Continue reading Kaossilator CV Modification with 4017 Sequencer

Circuit Bent Kaossilator with Photo Resistor

Nathan who runs ElectroExistence posted a couple of nice Kaossilator Pad jams. The device was modified using the GetLoFi LTC Kit and instructions. He also added a switchable Photo Resistor to control the LTC module with light and warble with a pulsating LED. The videos also demonstrate loop length change function, which is a great effect for making your … Continue reading Circuit Bent Kaossilator with Photo Resistor

Circuit Bending the Kaossilator

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yv00Imz7ym8[/youtube] Sometimes newer devices get overlooked for purposes of circuit bending.  Two main reasons are price and abundant use of SMT components almost too  small to work on. The Kaosillator is one such device. However once the novelty of the factory sounds wears off it is necessary to explore other possibilities and Kaosillator is no … Continue reading Circuit Bending the Kaossilator

Kaoss Pad Pitch Modification w/Internal Controls

David M. just sent us useful information on how to add internal pitch controls for both Kaossilator and the Kaoss Pad, below are his words of wisdom… After reading about the GetLoFi Tutorial for 1799 oscillator circuit mod on the KORG Mini KP/KO and with a few of the LTC Modules on hand I decided to give it a go … Continue reading Kaoss Pad Pitch Modification w/Internal Controls

LTC1799 Precision Oscillator

The Precision Oscillator is made with the LTC 1799 chip to provide ultra stable clock frequencies from 1Khz to about 30Mhz. The LTC Module can be used to control the speed of all digital circuits, thus providing speed adjust-ability for many toys and devices otherwise un-bendable. Only 3 wires to connect; +5 Volts for power, … Continue reading LTC1799 Precision Oscillator
