  1. Good thing we didn’t listen to the guy who suggested we should finish the film on a gas-money budget.

    • Then there will be the people griping about all the stuff you couldn’t cover!

      Looks like this is coming together nicely. Must be tough editing all the footage down to standard film length.

  2. If you want to support the film, you can get a special edition of the batteryACID eurorack module (something like a modular version of the classic MXR distortion+ stompbox) made by hexinverter.net and designed by me.

    • Synth meetup = sausage fest.

      It’s not the documentary’s fault – the audience for modular synths is mostly middle aged white guys.

      • RE “It’s not the documentary’s fault – the audience for modular synths is mostly middle aged white guys.” – Thank you – that’s it exactly, we’re just reporting on what’s there. I find that Carl Craig comment pretty offensive BTW – Carl Craig isn’t a token anything – he’s one of the world’s most enduring and respected techno artists, and a modular user.
