Circuit Benders Corner

I figured I would start a Circuit Benders Thread!

Feel free to share your Circuit Bent goodies and gadgets!

Here is the start to a hopefully fun adventure, the Casio SK-1!

My SK-1 currently has an LTC1799 installed along with front mounted A, B, & C Jumpers (/1, /10, /100) and 2x switchable Video Out!

I plan to follow the RG concept and utilize Image, Axis, and Skew, along with an Audition and Hold set up.
I have a few other ideas that will kind of stray away from the old SK-1 CONCERTODRONE unit.
Excited to get this on the bench!

Update on my SK-1 Build.

Panel is coming along, some specific parts are on order!

Here is the current panel, and on the back, it shows some spots that are just not drilled out yet, was in the process of planning what goes where lol.

This is definitely a fun build! :smiley:

Casio update - slowly but surely getting this thing done.

Taking my time because I’m in over my head BAHAHAHAHA.

But no seriously, I want it to be nice.
The port for the connection between the box and the Casio didn’t turn out as straight as I wanted, but here is how she looks!




Got the Case all Stained and figured out where the Power Supply will fit (bus board and transformer are not mounted yet)


And a little preview of what it will look like… :smiley:
(Lol, need to order the UMR2 and another midi jack)

Here’s an elementary article on pitch resistor bending:


For illustration he uses a voice changing megaphone toy nearly identical to one I and others of us have dealt with.
