This page, like most pages on my website, is a work in progress. If you have questions you'd like answered here, comment below, or write a question on your own website and send me a webmention! Philosophy Why did you build a modular synthesizer? At first I was just curious to see if I could… Read more...

quick lunch break patch: using boolean logic (AND) to generate funky rhythms. master clock goes into the AND module with various stuff (lfos, jk flip flop, clock divider) to generate sort-of random but in-time triggers. bassline sequenced using a shift register going into an r/2r ladder (great lunetta trick!). figured out how to make a pretty good kick sound with my resonant low pass filter.. thump thump! #analog #drummachine #synthjam #synthdiy

Between getting dinner, baby time, and cleaning food out of our dying fridge, I built a thing! I’ve been learning about Serge modular synthesizers and this one is inspired by them. Amazing what you can make with a $.60 chip (lm324 quad op amp), some resistors, and some passive components. Also: just started using stripboard instead of perfboard and it is amazing #synthdiy #serge #slope #analog

It is refreshingly imperfect, stunningly raw, and absolutely chock-full of character. It is the perfect antidote to digital computer-based music production. I am certain there is no other synthesizer quite like it. I am certain because I built it. Read more...
