Circuit Bending The Yamaha DD-5

LMNC live streams his modifications      16/10/21

Those who love circuit bending know it can be a dark art to start off in - but seasoned modifier Look Mum No Computer has new starters covered with a recent live stream of him bending the Yamaha DD-5 Drum machine. In the stream, he goes over what to look out for, how to add an LTC pitch changing module, and explains his process throughout - with minimal electric shocks! There is also some live ebay bidding and discussion of e-auction best practices. 

See part 1 of the live stream below:

 

And here is part 2, where he finishes the job:

 

Always take care when circuit bending as it can be dangerous - and as Sam mentions, only bend a piece of gear you can accept may never function (at least in the same way) again. Many of us have learnt this the hard way!
