Yeah, ASCII is big into that stuff. And Cyrricky, although he never visits here anymore. There are a few others, and they'll probably join the thread any time now.

4thImpulse does the DIY synth stuff too, I think, but yeah, Abby (ASCII) is pretty much our resident Synthesizer Fanatic

does flashing a gameboy cart to run lsdj count as circuit bending/diy synth?

Does it generate noise and work as a synthesizer? Then yes, haha.

Scarab does this sort of thing as well, although he rarely graces us with his presence ..

It's easily misread as Ascii because its a fairly commonly found thing if you've ever been on the Internet or around computers. the mind will make the connection and do a mental autocorrect. It's also meant to be capitalised because its an abbreviation.

I've designed a number of synthesizers, a couple of drum machines and a keyboard, as well as recycling some old PCB's from a TV into some rad effect/distortion boxes. Though, as I'm too poor to start buying parts to start prototyping, my designs are limited to untested schematics and hand/mouse drawn layouts. And lots of notes & bookmarks.

Of course, I'd love to get into circuit bending as well.
10/15/2014 - I finally return to ponies? Maybe.

Actually it was more like 10/12/2015

My current SoundCloud, pony & non-pony things found here.

I have 4 EP's under this alias!

Somepony talk to me, I are the lonelies. :c
