Modulating NAND gates


Three cascaded gated oscillators from NAND Gate Schmitt Trigger chip CD4093 from example in Nicolas Collins' book "Handmade Electronic Music - the art of hardware hacking". The variable resistors are one pot and one LDR and one digital potentiometer (DS1804) driven up and down with Basic Stamp. I experimented with different size caps here, from 0.01 to 1uF.
