On May 19 and 20, San Francisco’s music production school, Robotspeak, will be offering the first in an ongoing series of Modular Synth Building Workshops that will be led by a variety of master modular synth designers.
The first session on May 19 sold out within eight hours of the announcement. For those interested, there is still a spot or two left for the May 20 workshop at noon.
“You may be building an oscillator one month and filter the next, using each class to build all of the different elements of a Modular Synthesizer,” Steve Taormina of RobotSpeak said. “Each session will be overseen and advised by a different synth designer/builder, who will offer their expertise and time to bring back the communal modular synth building mind set from the past.”
The workshop will cost $150 per session and all PCB and supplies are included to build one module. Participants will be able to take their module home.
“We will build one every month,” Taormina said. “This is more than a product-based workshop; We want to build a monthly group where we can hang out and solder, and learn and share SDIY.”
