ARK-ADE rhythm machine

Originally a sound toy in the shape of Noah's Ark bought in a flea market for 50cents, the circuit displayed animal sounds and melodies. It has been re-boxed in a VHS case and bent so as to trigger its internal sounds by mini-jack connectors. There is an additional pitch control and CV input. It has been especially constructed to integrate with modular synths. The following video demonstrates the synchronization of "Ark-ade" with an analogue synthesizer/sequencer.
