Well, it's just being a fan of hardware, I've seen a lot of circuit bending videos on youtube where a perfectly decent machine has been wrecked to make the same fuzzy glitch/crunch nonsense. I just see it as lacking character.

Anyway, each to their own.



There's definitely a "less is more" approach to it.
I've put variable resistors as well as on/off switches so that the mods can be adjusted and even turned off all together.

When done thoughtfully, you can get some good effects and it's definitely more widespread than a few artists in the extremes of electronica like Aphex Twin. Artists like the Chemical Brothers have used circuit bent sounds in some of their tracks and lets not forget that Laurie Inmersion (aka Pounding Grooves) used (and possibly still uses) a hacked 303 heavily. Obviously I'm going a lot more down-market with my starting "synths", but for the cost of the hardware, it's a cheap and fun distraction if nothing else (which to be fair you did state yourself)

Anyhow, I'll try and get some samples online later and you can be teh judge yourselves.

Original post updated with images and below are the samples:
http://laumars.homedns.org/upload/circuitbend01/drums.mp3
^ a simple drum loop
http://laumars.homedns.org/upload/circuitbend01/demo.mp3
^ the "demo" button on the keyboard

Both samples start with on effects (to give you an idea of the pre-moding sound) and then pan between a combination of the different effects. I can get a few other effects with slight variations not demonstrated here, but those are the most of them.
