ILAB Report: 4ms Pedals Bend Matrix

Recently I met up with Dan Green of 4msPedals and I got a demonstration of his
"Joy Toy," The Bend Matrix, which is an analogue, MIDI-capable
box that sends MIDI note numbers to trigger sounds made by old children's toys.

I had never seen anything like it, but if you watch the interview he'll tell you that it's not technically a circuit bent device. Everything, as he says, is working as it's should, but the step sequencer is just making it do things in a crazy way. If any one out there uses it in proper compostions, I'd love to hear audio examples or see videos as I think it's a very interesting sound and can impart a certain flavour in certain genres of music. Here's the video.
