James’ Circuit Bent Library
Here is a Collection of samples from a few of my own circuit bent toys. I’ve made a quick couple of videos that will show you the method of how I captured these samples. I edited them in Protools at 16bit 441khz as mono WAV files. Feel free to comment or request any more. Enjoy.

Here’s a video of my toy car, it has 8 samples and two sensors, a light sensor and a potentiometer to control the sensitivity of that light sensor.
Here is a video of my drum machine it has a tone bend and an on of switch for that tone bend.
This is my speak and spell it has 2 momentary push buttons on it. One of them plays a random letter from the alphabet, (at one time i had this connected to a blinking led so it would trigger at each blink) The other button loops a few millisecond sample of the letter being spoken until you let go. You can create cool sounding pad sounds sending this into various effects.
The toy above is my Phonics Board. It has a light sensor on the top left near the speaker and a control switch to that sensor also a tone bending potentiometer .
Here is my Musini, I have added a glitch button and a tone bend. I really enjoy this toy because it has such a vast variety of sounds with a really large frequency range, and most of the glitches are FULL of harmonics so filtering them can make some dope instruments!
I will be updating the Library frequently so watch for updates!
