I'd love this! :D Hopefully you can get each letter directly, and then take "requests."
I'd like to ask how you're doing this. Does it have a speaker out? Or did you solder one on? And what's your recording chain, in this case?
(Also, I've heard that Speak and Spells can be LOTS of fun to circuit bend...)
Believe it or not, the speak and spell has a line out ;D
As for the recording chain...probably just the speak and spell, into my mackie desk, then into my Digi 001. Clean and simple :)
The speak and spell is indeed fun to circuit bend. Old school 1970's microprocessor technology. Fucking with the control lines on a 4 bit cpu is child's play ;D. I'm not circuit bending this one though...I have a slight aversion to destroying vintage electronics :P
The speak and spell itself can't actually spell out words that you put into it (which is what I bought it for in the first place), hence this little project I'm doing. I'm going to butcher all the words up into individual phonemes (eventually), then see if I can come up with some way of gluing them back together into other words. Considering the amount of words that it comes pre-loaded with, I might even have some leeway as far as introducing inflection goes ;D
