“Up for grabs is a super ultra rare bend by the infamous Tablebeast.
To my knowledge he only did twp bends on this particular Casio model and the other keyboard went to Trent Reznor’s studio during the With Teeth sessions, or at least that is the story Jesse Savage told me. He sent this to me as part reparations for a custom amp project that went seriously wrong (ie never delivered).
Own one of these rare gems, its got glitch soul for days, nothing like it.”
Sadly, the auction is long over. But many other opportunities for glitchiness await…
Dino steals the show in this video from Ok Housecat. Lots of fun circuit-bending in this one, and Dino seems to be enjoying it.

Just modded and bent the classic M1/M1r wavetable with 6 switches on the back of the machine. 5 sounds demo with circuit bent options.
First 3 demo with normal Midi keyboard, In 2 others, the Mi1r is driven by an algorithmic generator module ‘Turing machine’. Generated patterns are midi converted with a D
oepfera-162 cv to MIDI module.
Very interesting to see a Korg M1 and M1R “bent” this way. And if that feline portrait looks familiar, it’s probably because you’ve seen it before. Eric of Polynominal.com and his cat Marcel are good friends of ours at CatSynth, and we have featured many of Marcel’s pictures.

Charlotte the cat contemplates the horror that is a circuit-bent Big Mouth Billy Bass. From Ok Housecat on YouTube.
I was often sardonically amused by this fishy contraption since the commercials in the 1990s. But now I am genuinely intrigued by its circuit-bending possibilities. At the very least, it could make for a fun CatSynth TV episode. I found at least one set of instructions here, but it might be even more fun to just take it aport and just explore with alligator cables.
The Horror…The Horror…
