Circuit Bending: Casio PT-80

There are, however, a number of interesting percussion effects available with some exploration. I added three switches which each effect the percussion in a different way, plus a pot to allow a sort of filter sweep, as well as a pot to rapidly alter the tempo. A fun circuit to bend, despite its limitations.
