X1L3 – circuit bent – synth mod – Roland TR 505
Cauldron born! Another dirge disco relic of the 80’s risen from it’s grave to do what it does best in the hell of the living. Juicy analogue filter mods on a retro 80’s machine. Even if the glitch switches weren’t fitted it would still sound good. The filter/delay combination i favour works nicely with drum machines and the tr505 is a fine example.
Upon completion the psu pcb had a few free terminals left so i decided to liven up under the front panel with a series of leds that shift through the RGB spectrum. So i guess as well as a nice drum machine it’s also a moody lamp in a dark place for when you just want to lay back and and drift for a while.
