circuitbending tutorial

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

thanks to experimental electronics group IGE*timer and maggie at mckeown’s books and difficult music a handful of new orleanians were able to get a crash course in circuit bending at loyola’s school of music’s electronics lab.

for those wanting to take this further, i just ran across some good resources at casper electronics for circuit benders.

i am also intrigued by their Drone Lab V2, which is a souped-up version of dan’s homebrew cigar-box oscillator box, aka the “ass tone.”

SoundHack is the venerable music processing platform; it’s been around as long as I’ve known you could make music on Macs. I had no idea it even still existed. The site is worth looking at, plus there’s some cool free delay plugins and the like. Thanks to proswell for the tip.
