Roland TR-606 sync with circuit bent bliptronic 5000

"Little improvised thing with the 606 and the bliptronic. You can run the trigger outputs on the 606 to the "link" input port on the 5000 to trigger it." - thanks to frostedminipete

Nicest video I've seen showing off the 50$ ThinkGeek Bliptronic 5000. It's a pretty trippy melodious affair until about 3.50 when some massive distortion starts screaming from the little plastic box. Tasty!
