Thanks!

Just wait till I get that Casio SK-5 (the RadioShack rebrand model, actually) and the Yamaha PSS-680 all circuitbent. Funny, I've been sitting on them for the last 25 years or so and suddenly I get this urge to modify them. I'm gonna rewire that Casio Mt-240 as well, I feel there are sound possibilities as yet unreached. I'll midi them allll together and stand back while I hit the play button.

Finally got the switches from Amazon. It seems they came from China and that's kind of a trick these days. Plus I didn't want to pay for shipping so it was a two week delay, but I'm in no hurry.

Each of the black knobs are five way switches, actually they are dual five ways but i probably won't use all of them. I used to have three switches on the thing, this is like putting in twenty switches. I don't have time to wire it up right now, life is getting in the way. Stay tuned to this bat channel...

This is the Radio Shack rebranding of the Casio SK-5. That's 10 switches on the side of that thing. It made some really whacked out noises when I did a test bend with alligator clips a couple weeks ago. I have high hopes for this, hope I don't brick it.

This is the Yamaha PSS-680 Music Station, circa 1984. I usually only use it to midi thru and play stuff on my full size keyboard. there's five switch units left and they're all going in here if I can manage it.

But can you do something simple, like a straight playback of either The Washington Post march or A Whiter Shade of Pale?

I rewired the Casio a couple days ago, just because. Here's more oddness for you...
