Developer Mayank Sanganeria has released bent.fm – a full FM model of a circuit-bent synthesizer.

bent.fm allows the user to tweak classic circuit bending modifications like fine and octave-decimated clock bends, and experiment with more esoteric bends.

Sanganeria says that bent.fm is ‘for anyone interested in circuit bending, glitch sounds, industrial music, and post-procedural art.’

Circuit-bent distortions and algorithmic sequences can be created by (im)proper connections on the bend matrix. Reroute digital serial information through the base chip set (a numerically controlled oscillator) and extra logic gates (NAND and XOR, binary counters), and experience architecture-level bit crushing.

Audiobus and IAA are supported, but the app store specs make no mention of MIDI.

bent.fm is available for US $3.99 in the App Store.
