To keep all my patch cords from looking the same, I have taken to putting heat shrink tubing in thin strips on them so I can find the matching ends in a big patch. I can also tell how long they are by my little length code, so I don’t grab one that’s way too shot. Here they in a nifty cable rack from Koma Elektronik.
Some guy was liquidating his system on Ebay and it was cheap and I had room. A Synthesis Technology E560 Deflector Shield.
It seemed like it would be a natural for smashing sound that comes out of the Qubit Nebulae and some sound loaded up on a flash drive. After the Deflector Shield shifts and decimates the sound that’s been resampled and majorly screwed-with, the output goes into the TipTop Z5000 Reverb, which does more than just reverb.
With some editing to make it palatable, here’s “Santorum.”
Fabricio Carvalho has created quite a few podcasts honoring old electronic music pioneers.

I like this a lot. Quirky, oddball and catchy. I’m diggin’ the little random filtery sounds.
This is a Future Retro Zillion algorithmic sequencer. A few settings cause the Zillion to generate sequences of notes via Midi.
It’s based on the Triadex Muse, a musical toy from the 1970’s.
Here’s a Zillion with a bunch of other Eurorack stuff.
The Muse was designed by Marvin Minsky and Edward Fredkin, both MIT professors with an interest in artificial intelligence, Intended as a compositional aid.
Here’s a vid with the Triadex Muse, Amplifier and LIght Show.
An algorithmic music generator, the Muse uses digital logic circuits to produce a sequence of notes based on the settings of various parameters. It has four small sliders that control Volume, Tempo, Pitch, and Fine Pitch.
Extremely rare. I wish I woulda gotten one back in 1972.
This live electronic performance by Oneohtrix Point Never is worth settling down and listening to.http://boilerroom.tv/recording/oneohtrix-point-never/
