Circuit Bent Korg Kaossilator KAOSS BOX

July 12, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Circuit Bent Korg Kaossilator – KAOSS BOX. Complete with a break-out box that contains switches used to circuit bend the memory rom chip thus creating distortion and glitches in the synthesizer playback. Also inside the break out box is an LTC precision oscillator used to speed up and slow down the fixed frequency crystal, this allowing for analog pitch control via a knob. It is also possible to use a Photo-resistor instead of the potentiometer this allowing for theremin like operation of the unit.
The mods are:

Full Kaossilator Bolted onto box

Pitch Down

Switchable Pitch down LDR

LFO with Rate Control Knob and Rainbow LED indicator

Two Types of LFO on three way switch

4x Ring Mods switches

3x Glitch Switches (the unit does need to be switched off/on when your finished with these bends to get everything back to normal)

The Switch in the middle of Glitch switches gives a nice double up thing on the sounds!

1/4″ Jack to hook up to Homemade sequence

I’ve been struggling to come up with a video for this, so I decided to just go for it and do a simple jam to show what the unit can do. It starts of a bit slow but gradually gets better. The glitch bends can do alot more but I think you get the idea. I will do another vid with it hooked up to my sequencer soon.
