In the latest episode of the Art + Music + Technology podcast, synthesist Darwin Grosse talks with Paul Schreiber, creator of the MOTM synthesizer modular synthesizer.
“At what point does the electronic reality stop and the voodoo start?” asks Schreiber – who goes on to offer his perspective on the question and how it applies to the modular world.
Paul Schreiber has seen it all, from building his own Heathkit gear, to designing automotive stereo systems, to designing cell phones to creating modular synthesizer systems. I was, of course, mostly interested in the latter, but I was also interested in how modular systems were informed by his earlier experiences. In this interview, Paul shares how he learned electronics, how he designed the MOTM modular system, and also shares his advice for anyone interested in digging into it themselves.
