        You evil person.

        Yeah, I've messed about with different things, mostly for control
and MIDI, but I've fooled around with digital sound sources as well.  I got
interested in DSP a couple years ago, but the cost was prohibitive, the
cheapest development board I could find was around $600 with the software,
and that's a bit much for an experimentor..  I would still like to fool
around with digital filters, I used to have an EMAX II and I really loved
the sound of those.

        Mostly, though, I am interested in building small MIDI projects
when it comes to digital.  MIDI>CV converters, Channel filters, CV>MIDI,
things like that.  In fact, the last one is of particular interest to me
right now.

        I'd like to have a box that took the inputs of several CV sources,
LFOs for instance, and could be routed to different MIDI continuous
controllers.  Send those CCs to filter cutoff, PWM, resonance, ring mod
amount, etc.  VOILA!  The ultimate random ambient machine.
