Casio SA-38 Bending
« on: January 13, 2017, 11:24:01 AM »

Hi guys. I am attempting to bend my Casio SA-38 synth, and so far I have got more accurate volume control and a weird random glitch sound. However I am having trouble finding more bends on the synth. I have looked around on the web and found information on other earlier SA models but not the 38. I was just wondering, if anyone had any advice on good bends for this particular model, or ones with similar architecture.

Here is a picture of my work so far: http://imgur.com/gallery/bxelp

Thanks

Hey! Thanks for the reply.

Yeah I managed to add a voltage drop by sticking a 100ohm pot between the positive battery terminal and the board. Also found a few places on the larger chip that if you add a momentary push button between, it creates some really weird loops/glitches.

For now though i'm going to focus on bending my Yamaha PSS-270.
