A short guide to help you get began making experimental music/mayhem together with your Coleco Speaking Teacher.
With all of switches within the off position (lower in order to the outdoors) and also the pitch control completely counterclockwise, turn the system on, once the screen reads alphabet or count, hit the important thing,
it'll either start saying the alphabet or prompt you for level. If level is motivated simply press a, b, c, or d. after which press .
Your unit will begin speaking and you may then start flipping switches, modifying the pitch control, working the loop to produce some very strange and fascinating new sounds.
The switch on the top over the photo-cell may be the opto-pitch on/off. It’s ON when set in your direction.
The switch on the top near the pushbutton may be the LOOP, its ON when set in your direction. Switch it on after which make use of the button to succeed through the potential loop sounds.
The switches around the left hands from the face are Beat Loop, Fuzz, Glitch 1, Glitch 2.
Try flipping on the glitch and pressing different keys around the membrane touchpad for strange random sounds.
The metal contact left from the screen is pitch control touch it vary the pitch.
The button over the pitch knob the best side is seem mute when pressed in.
The knob near the output jack is volume control.
Use other modes of play for various glitches.
There isn’t any wrong or right method to play, only have fun finding new experimental sounds.
This can be a quite simple introduction regarding the new controls, experimentation and a few experience can help you master the Bent Speaking Teacher.
