Receiving a CD from the Modified Toy Orchestra

If you like circuit bent music then I can thoroughly recommend Plastic Planet by the Modified Toy Orchestra. I ordered this a while back as I loved their first album and I’ve seen them live, which is completely amazing I have to say. I’d forgottent that I’d ordered it, and then as you can see from the pictures above, it arrived together with a note saying sorry, and a variety of bits and pieces as extras.

The ablum itself is great and as for the packaging, well, it’s a work of art in my view.

Finder Drum Pads Circuit Bent Speak And Spell

I like the idea of this app, in fact I’m all for circuit bent stuff on iOS. Here’s what the app has to say for itself.

Transform your phone into a circuit bent Speak and Spell!

Play the kit’s pads and enjoy the glitchy sounds, or modify it to the max in real time with the multiple effects!


  • 8 Pads, and an assignable ribbon controller.
  • 3 Audio effects:
    • Pitch Bend, Low Pass Filter, Bit Crusher.
  • The effects can be assigned to Ribbon Controller and both axis of the device’s Accelerometer.
  • Midi IN: trigger the sounds externally
  • Midi OUT: control other synths with FDP’s pads!

The app is priced at $0.99.
