Circuit Bent Yamaha SHS-10

"***CIRCUIT BENT ***
YAMAHA SHS-10 KEYTAR

These machines on their own are amazing workhorses that sound amazing....

Circuit Bent they are INCREDIBLE!!!

These are bent ala' Rheed Ghazala style with a GetLoFi -style LTC1799 precision oscillator for pitch.

The bends are:

- 8 on/off switches that tap the ROM chip and create viking-style Beserker glitches and synth noise....drones/noise/experimental *BLISS*
- 1 Pot/knob that allows the mixing of the sonics

- 3 Glitch fit on/off switches that send the keytar into harsh sonic excitement

- 1 on/off switch for VIBRATO
- 1 on/off switch for PORTAMENTO
- 1 on/off switch for SUSTAIN

- 6 on/off switches that allow the flow or disruption of data to the FM SYNTH chip allowing for some HEAVILY MUTATED alien world synth sounds.

- 1 on/off switch to the LTC1799 precision oscillator to allow the unit to be 'normally' pitch or turned on to go high or low pitched realms....

- 1 knob for pitch control

- 1 Bright Blue LED for oscillator "ON" notification" eBay Link

Custom LSDJ Keytar

"I've built numerous custom game boys, circuit bent keyboards, drum machines, etc. so I make quality modifications. The combo for sale here is one of my favorite! Very one-of-a-kind, great for performance. I only performed with it a few times live, it was super fun! Other than that, it just sat in storage while I track in LSDJ on other gameboys. Here's what you need to know, although all this stuff is pretty self-explanatory from the pictures:" eBay Link

Commodore 64 Keytar

"In this auction we have one of the most tricked out, one-of-a-kind, nothing else like it Commodore 64 computers in existence! I hand built this fully functional mod over the course of 5 months +/- years in stress. So much research, development, time, design and money went into this project and I can honestly say I am super proud of what I built. I am currently in a bit of a bind and my priorities are completely shifted. In short, I am selling off the majority of my studio to be with my son.

Here is a list of all the mods, hacks and work I put into this thing. Please read all of this to understand exactly what it is that I am selling. There are links for you to further research and see more pictures of this build in the text below.

Circuit Bent Yamaha SHS-10

"You are bidding on a Yamaha SHS-10 keytar circuit bent and in complete working order, original and bent. The stock keyboard functions include: Midi out, about thirty preset rhythms and tones, has multiple midi channel outputs, pitch, tuning, basically all the basics of Yamaha's eighties FM keyboards. Circuit bends include: 24 point patch bay (I use bolts because they are really cheap and really durable), 5 glitch push buttons, and 6 data-line cut switches.

MIDI!!! The patch bay affects the midi and will send circuit bent midi data!! Circuit bend your favorite synth! I have used it with the following instruments with amazing results: Blofeld synth module, tr 505 drum machine, Electribe er-1, Alesis Hr-16 drum machine, Yamaha PSS-480, Casiotone MT 240, Akai ax-60 (analog synth), MPC-500, and a DX-7. The SHS-10 will make other instruments produce impossible glitch patterns, drones, and self generating rhythms.

Some things to take note of: This keyboard is really glitch heavy, many combinations of things will make it crash or freeze. This is normal, it is very durable (As far as circuit bending goes) and will last a long time. Note every combination on the patch bay will produce a result, but it is important to have all the options available. This keyboard is not suited for reproduction of sounds, the only thing you can be sure of is that it will be random, for experimenters only. Keyboard functions 100% normal and has a few minor wear and tear scratches but is in overall good cosmetic shape. " eBay Link
