What’s on offer:

Build a phonic Taxidermist 47.2b:
designed by
The Phonic Taxidermist 47.2b is a clone of the Maplin voice vandal. It consists of a grungy 10 bit digital delay based around a HT8955A ‚Voice Echo‘ chip, and a high speed audio chopper that strobes incoming audio on and off at four separate frequency bands. The chopping circuit produces effects that sounds similar to a kind of nasty cross modulation or filthy frequency based distortion.
I have 6 boards left, including all the needed parts, so you can build the whole thing and also include some extra mods that I found while building it!

A/V circuit bending:
Bring your toys, we make noise.
You bring some of your gear and I show you all the tricks how you can make it into something all new just by poking around on the circuit board!. So go and hit the fleamarket or your attic/basement for all those things that have been collecting dust for years!
Examples: old Casio Keyboards, Kids Toys, Drum Machines, Video enhancers/processors, Delay pedals, etc…

Answerphone hacking:
I still have a few answering machines lying around that are desperately waiting to be made into superwhack Samplers. Monsterfuuuuun!

40106 Mini Synth
