"Mods (via circuit bent interface):
1x program selector rotary switch
3x program rotary switches (3x bend points each) with LED Indicators.
2x program connector switches (to link program rotaries) with LED Indicators.
1x A/B switch (with momentary or lockable option).
3x additional rotary banks (10x bend points each)
2x rotary bank connector switches.
Only the patches in Bank B are subject to the circuit bent interface. Bank A has been filled with gorgeous analog synth sounds via sysex patching. Bank C is the domain of the external memory card (not demonstrated).
In this demo I am sending a single unit of MIDI (mostly an arpeggiated sequence) through several different preset patches, which are then manipulated via the circuit bent interface. The D-110 is a multi-timbral unit but having demonstared several D-110's multi-timbrally in previous demo's, I chose to operate just a single MIDI channel this time around.
The Circuit Bent Interface Design:
Select one of three programs (indivated by yellow, red and green LED's). This selection activates the first rotary bank (which can be extended to three via connector switches).
In addition, programs can be linked via two connecting switches to further deepen the synthesis. The A/B switch will over-ride any existing bend configuration and is offered as either a momentary or lockable option.There are a few other little circuit tricks too, resulting in countless circuit bent configurations.
The overall interface design encourages intuitive bend to bend manipulation and allows the user to relocate favourite bend points with relative ease."
