Finished Pieces

Space S&M

    casperelectronics Speak and Spell: Space S&M

    This one is still sitting on my “unfinished” shelf. If anyone out there is interested, I could easily be talked into finishing it. I wanted to make a Speak&Math with a large keyboard on it for controlling the pitch, so I had to build a new housing to accommodate the keys. I moved the circuit board from the S&M body and mounted it in
    the new housing, but I left the original touch pad for accessing the regular functions of the S&M.

      this is the most ingenious speak and math bend i have ever ever seen!

      i want it! lol

      have u got any help on bends for a speak and maths i ahve 2 that i wish to butcher! ive done a speak and spell with a handfull of bends but im struggling with more advanced bends!

      I’ve put up a bunch of schematics on the Speak&Spell Bending page:

      Hoo-WEE! This looks gorgeous! The rehousing looks both super spiffy and comfortable! Casper’s take on the classic double keyboard home organ entertainment system! The most excited aspect of this piece is that the keys control the pitch! I adore the reality of a circuit bent device being hard to control musically, but sometimes playing with control is also wonderful!

      I implore you to finish this up, sir!

      I have a speak and math with a fried transitor in the power section.

      I cant find the transistor by the number writen on it. do you have any idea what type it is, or a sutible replacement?

      Sorry. no idea. Most likely there is a replacement available. TI designs are top quality and it is unlikely they would use a super specialized component that cant be replaced. The trick is figuring out what writing on the transistor is important. There are often 2 or 3 lines of letters and numbers written on old transistors. The part number is hidden somewhere in one of those lines, or part of one of those lines. AND even then the numbers can be misleading. It may be something like a “NT540CL5” (i made that up). The part may be an NT450 NPN transistor, the “CL5” may imply that it has a higher operating range than the “CL6” or something. but all that matters is that its an NT450. AND it may only really matter that its an NPN… meaning you may be able to replace it with any old NPN transistor. this stuff can make you crazy. good luck!

      I have a s+m kicking around with a transistor burned out in the power supply board. the part is burned in a way i cant read the model. any idea what kind of tranny i need to replace in there?

      This is incredible. Would you be interested in a commission of some sort to finish it? I’d love to get my hands on this!

      @ Jed. This piece is packed away back in the US. so I wont have access to it for another year or so. BUT once I get back I would be happy to finish and sell it. Sooooo if you think of it and are still interested in a year drop me a line 🙂

      I’ll be following your progress on finally getting this into someone’s hands. Live long and prosper.
