Hell Yeah! Get one! There $40 on amazon. The workbooks are really well done! Forest M. Mimms III is the coolest. What are you waiting for?
With the help of Expert Sleepers Silent Way and its calibration loop, I was able to get a decent range out of this really simple circuit. A little flash light trickery goes along way with this light sensitive lo-fi oscillator.
Yes this bread board is the lead synth in this track. Silent way + motu ultralite gives the osc voltage and gate voltage to make the 74C14 osc circuit change pitch and turn on and off. The black tube blob is a homemade opto-coupler(an led super-glued to a photoresistor with heat shrink tubing around it). Most of the ideas came from this book and a bunch of other books and tools. It suprises me how few components were necessary to get something to happen.
The DUBBOX for my adventures with Ted Sirota’s Heavyweight Dub!
Contains arcade style punch in buttons and a light controlled noise synth for extra dubtastic atmosphere.
Who cares what it sounds like…my laptop is telling it what to do and noise is coming out on the beat. Yay!
120Bread.mp3 In case you DO care.
So all the albums have a .ZIP package now for easier downloading. YAY!
Here is a nice set of all original K-rAd tracks. The intro features a vocal by the late Terry Callier. He gave me a lo-fi digital voice recorder with tons of song sketches on it. Enjoy

This mix is for all the dub masters that have been so influential to K-rAd since the beginning. King Tubby, Scientist, Mad Professor, Lee Perry … The Dub heroes of K-rAd.
Our good friend Johnny Armstrong came over to the pAd for dinner. We fed him chopped salad, squash, fish sandwiches and curried potatoes. Then he fed us this sweet all vinyl set from his crate of tasty wax. Thanks Johnny.

Check out the K-rAd_RTS.FM_080911 set. Broadcasted from pAdK-rAd.
This set came out nicely. I played slower 116-120 BPM. Since I was at home I could use all my stuff at the same time. There are a few moments when there are two Ableton machines and one Impulse Tracker machine all going at once plus moog and turntable ahhhh! Yes…all the tracks are originals.
Here is the .WAV of the set: K-rAd_RTSFM_080911.wav
Tune in to K-rAd’s broadcast live on RTS.FM August 9th 2011 3PM CST.

Signals Treats is now available on the Classic page. We made this CD as a demo for a record label in New York. They strung us along for a bit then never put anything out. They were upset because we were putting our music out independently.
qqqq is now available on the Classic page. This record is hilarious. If you don’t like it, four Q man!
