Do you Circuit-bend ?
I am very embarrassed with circuit-bending :

As an electronic musician, I think that all bending instruments sound very bad and are not serious for making music, glitches and other ugly sounds hurt my ears and that the one and only interesting bending toy is so far the TI Speak&Spell (I own two).

But as a experimental musician I like so much the weird design of this amazing and tortured toys...

Here are two beautiful projects which I assume it's better to see than to listen to :)

Cool Indexing Rings for download

Thomas Edward Green recently purchased a Moog Etherwave Standard theremin and have created some cool indexing rings for the knobs.

Of course you can use them for any synth or diy projects : a very clever and useful idea.
