Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

First project! Gotta start basic or I'll give up way to quick. I bought this little guy at the thrift store for 2 bucks, figured I'd give this circuit bendery a gander. After messing with the circuit for a couple hours, I gave up out of dissatisfaction with sounds I got. I got some good seemingly aleatronic tones, and some random piecings of various phrases, and even some streams of chip confusion, but none of them were reproducable. Today, I did a search and saw on sailormouth (a CB blog) that someone has bent this toy before.

Anybody got some ideas of what I could do with this? Even if it's one bend with some bypass switches and and 1/4" output, I want to make a project of this. I just need to get my brain thinking and figured maybe you had tips or suggestions.

I look forward to posting more on this boards, mostly just in the circuit bending forum.

I don't even know what a battery starve pot is, just what a pot is. I guess I'll try to research it.

For future reference, you can read about battery starve pots here:

You can place a pot inline with the + voltage to also starve the circuit.
