"Thanks to the latest update for #musikraken app, you can integrate game controllers into your musical life. Here a ps4 controller stick is sending midi notes and cc from musikraken to AUM loaded with #fractalbits and #koalafx. The stick is configured to send midi notes by changing its y-position (from low to higher notes) while the x-axis is controlling filter, comb filter and crush of koalafx."

CIRCUIT BENT PS2 - LSD: Dream Emulator / B.L.U.E. / GTA VC - Soft Modded, Internal SSD (FMCB)


video upload by LoFiFuture

"Taking on a limited number of these circuit bent PS2s for 2022! https://www.lofifuture.com/storefac96...

And for all the DIYers out there, I'm currently editing the tutorial one how to circuit bend your own PlayStation 2!

This modification starts with a full disassembly and deep clean of the PS2, the optical drive is removed in favour of an internal HDD and a memory card running Free McBoot. (Free McBoot is a custom firmware that runs on a memory card that resides in memory card slot two of the console. It introduces various features to the PS2, the main one being the ability to run game backup ISOs from an internal HDD, via ethernet or from a USB pen drive)

Once the optical drive is removed 23 toggle switches are mounted on the top of the console to control the circuit bends a long with a RCA video out and 3.5mm stereo audio out omitting the need for the original Sony AV cable. 14 of the toggle switches are wired into the traces between the Emotion Engine (EE) and Graphics Synthesizer (GS) chips on the PlayStation motherboard. These corrupt the 3D data running into the GS before they are sent to the video output encoder.

9 of the toggle switches are wired into the Sound Processing Unit (SPU) RAM for some circuit bent audio effects. all 23 of these switches are wired to the same "bend bus" meaning that when two or more switches are in the "on" position they are connected together. Connecting the audio data bends to video data bends results in chaotic and mesmerising cross modulation.

Every game is effected differently by the toggle switches. Some are easy to crash with certain switches. Some games will take everything you throw at it and then some! It all depends on how the game you are trying to glitch out was programmed and how it utilises the hardware we are mercilessly forcing into a corrupted state. It helps to make a "switch map" for any game that like to crash when things get to glitchy, this was you can easily rule out what does and does not work for a particular game.

For example, running the PS1 copy of LSD: Dream Emulator produces some incredible effects but likes to crash when I flick one particular section of switches into action. On the other hand, GTA: Vice city will run with every single toggle switch on and revert back to completely normal visuals.

Includes:

-Circuit Bent PS2 Console (PAL or NTSC, select from the dropdown)

- Aftermarket PS2 controller

-Internal 120GB HDD + Network/HDD card"

1982 Sony CFS-C7 Chord Machine Ad


Another find via @deejayiwan, via @nightliquid_retro

Videos further below.

"In the early 80s, the portable consumer electronics market was still in its infancy; many companies were still testing the waters with incredibly innovative products. Here’s a perfect example: What you see above is an analog drum machine, a chord generator, a cassette recorder, a AM / FM radio and a boombox, all in one device - Sony's CFS-C7 Chord Machine. Connect a guitar or a microphone, select a drum pattern, program some chords, hit record & make musical history. 😎🎢"

Beaterator PSP Synth Only - Dark Sci-Fi Cinematic Soundtrack


Published on Mar 10, 2020 ChrisLody

"I think maybe tonight's upload has been inspired by the continual bombardment of Covid-19 news because it turned out pretty damn dark and very dark sci-fi soundtrack score sort of thing.

So everything here is coming from the synthesizer in Beaterator on PSP including the reverb. It's pretty damn good, I don't use it enough really. Beaterator can play 8 channels of 3 oscillator monophonic synths at once with plenty of editing. It also has some pretty decent effects with automation including a decent reverb.

I've tried to create some string/orchestra/modern score type of sounds from scratch so they're all my own patches."

Music 2000 For Playstation 150bpm DnB PS1 Eboot on PSP


Published on Dec 8, 2018 ChrisLody

"I've been wanting to get back into Music 2000 (or MTV music generator outside of Europe) on Playstation for years as I learned a ton from it back in the day but I never managed to finish a single thing on it. I still have the original PS1 disc but no PS1 so I made this Eboot which to my surprise runs almost perfectly on a PSP.

So I now have a nice portable music making device and built this old school drum and bass track over the last few days, only about 19 years too late. It's made from internal sounds apart from the second break that kicks in about half way through, this was from a 2003 Computer Music sample CD as I wanted to try out the sampling feature. I did this on PS3 and transferred the save over. It doesn't run properly on PS3 but at least this is possible."

"The program I use is called Beats Trellis. It's a sampler basically with only few samples included and there is no option to load additional samples, so it's very limited. However it fits for some techno."
