Will this be all electronic, or would it include cigar box guitar type stuff, too? (Sounds dang cool!)

E. All of the above.

When I get motivated, I will write up some of my ideas. Cigar box guitars was one of the first things I thought of as well.

There will certainly be lots of electronics, because that's what I'm currently interested in, but it will not be limited to that.

I have two or three SN76477 chips that are great as a foundation for a synthesizer.

HERE is the wikipedia information.

HERE is the datasheet.

I also have some quad switch ICs, which I thought were quad analog bilateral switches, that I planned on using with this to switch various caps and resistors in and out using digital control.

If anyone has further ideas on building around the SN76477, please post.

I would just get it setup for prototyping, figure out how to drive it, perhaps from an arduino.

From there we can just tinker with it to see what fun stuff we can make it do.

Actual speech synthesis is not required, if it can generate some glitchy goodness then all the better.

Actually this chip is only a sound generator and not a speech synthesizer. I do though also have two or three speech synth chips, the SP0256A-AL2, which was used I think in the old Speak n' Spell. A very lo-fi speech synth.

I see, that's cool though too. The lo-fi speech synth would be fun too.

I was just at the Bloomington Goodwill last night (~Lyndale & American Blvd.) and they had a bunch of First Act 5 Pad digital drum sets for ~$30 - $35 each. I dunno if they'd be useful for circuit bending or even just playing, but they had several, and it looked like they would retail for more than the price they had.
