Furrtek is clearly into advanced electronics options for multiplying the capabilities of existing gear. His article on creating a MIDI-input option for the Korg Kaossilator shows the kind of dedicated experimenting you can do by learning some electronics and programming. MAKE-ish. [ via Hack-A-Day]

Back in 1981 I was the first one on my block to use a PC (8080), assembler and a breadboarded circuit (VFC chip … like the LM2917) to drive the CV (pitch) input of a Moog console oscillator. It made a little melody! (Luckily I didn’t have to write-up that little project.) Always good to see the flame thriving out there.
