A kind of larger brother to the BuzzBird. Salvaged
from a dumpster at the local recycling centre. 4-note polyphony,
6 rhythms with tempo +/, 8 instruments, autochords with rhythmsynch,
pitchbend wheel (ca. ½ tone), volume wheel, demotune and
a microphone input.
Tempo/pitch potentiometers: coarse and fine, adjustable
from fast to ultra slow.
Bodycontacts: speed- and pitchbend downwards when
touched one at a time, one moderate the other variable with max.
range at lowest speed. When touched together you get speed- and
pithbend upwards, or to the average of the two, according to the
current setting of speed/pitch.
LDR (photoresistor): placed in parallel with the
speed/pitch potentiometres. Gives speed- and pitchbend. Modulationdepth
depends on the setting of the pitch/speed potentiometers.
Tone control: three position selector for normal or
distorted sound with two different levels of crunchy lo-fi distortion.
Glitch buttons: the four yellow buttons gives an arpeggio-like
effect in different toneheights. One of them only works when autochords
are not synched with rhythm. One blue button makes arpeggio only
when rhythm is running. The last two blue buttons makes glitches
when held down, and affects rhythmspeed and demotune when pressed
Line out: added a line-out
mini-jack with a speaker/line-out select switch.
