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.

Looking for a Gristleism Mod?

Yes? Well if you are then look no further. A.S.M.O. is offering Gristleism Mods for £75 + shipping.

“These are modified Gristleism which I made for Throbbing Gristle, they were used by the band at their final show as TG at the Village Underground, Hackney in October 2010. They have an added LFO circuit which modulates the pitch and cycles through the 9 loops, the 3 knobs control LFO speed, wave shape and depth, the 2 push buttons on the front engage the LFO and trigger the 9 loops in sequence.”
