Rubber Band Guitar Meets Modular Synth (DIY instrument)

Earlier this week I posted a video of this rubber band instrument I made. In this video, I plug it into my modular synthesizer. It can not only be used to make audio, but also control voltages.

Intro - 0:00
Patch 1 - 0:51
Patch 2 - 1:18
Patch 3 - 2:30
Patch 4 - 4:08

See the build video here:

And see me plugging it into FX here:

Just when I thought it couldn't get any weirder, you've taken it one step further, one can only imagine what you'll come up with in the future. ;-D
