Circuit Bent Yamaha RX7 demo

"Some flat out chewing the furniture lunacy from a circuit bent Yamaha RX7.

The RX7 is very difficult to operate when using the circuit bent mods, but its well worth the effort as you can't get this kind of madness from any other machine, other than the RX7's big brother, the RX5.

20 way main patchbay: More information and details of our patchbay mods can be found HERE. The RX7 patchbay responds a little differently to most circuit bent drum machines. When patchbay connections are made on the RX7 you find that at least 60% of the sounds are disabled, but the ones that remain are transformed into alien effects like we've never heard before on a bent drum machine. Make a different connection on the patchbay and a different set of sounds are disabled but again, the remaining sounds morph into bizarre digital shimmers and cold percussive hits that are both totally unexpected and unique. Remove all the patch cables and the machine responds as normal again."
