Re: modded EDP/bending

i know that much
i wasnt about to start arbitrarily shorting things out
i just figured there mightve been a relatively simple mod
like sending the feedback amount to ground, or shorting the ram(to make it 
play back randomly or whatnot)
its a wonderful machine, and i personally wouldnt have the gall(or teh 
budget)to fry one
itd just be nice to have a looper with some pinache

or at worst, if i fry the thing(which im not even going to open the thing 
until i get some good suggestions(if any))i can always make it onto a 
"dont end up like this jackass"


<< Circuit bending's generally much more productive on a device with a chip
 that's deeper than the interface would appear, that is, in order to cut
 production costs, there are fewer features than the IC supports [e.g.
 low-end Casios; the SK-1 is the archetypal circuit-bending guinea pig], or
 in a device which wasn't designed for strictly musical purposes [like a
 Speak & Spell], but uses a similar chip. This is often because the same
 chip could be used in several different devices, and it would be cheaper
 than designing a different one for each model. More sophisticated 
 usually has more features/controls/parameters already occupying those
 pin-outs, or software that really doesn't like encountering alternate
 circuit paths, so you'd probably get your most dramatic and rewarding
 results bending the cheap stuff, and you wouldn't be risking destroying
 something valuable. >>
