In the halls of the monster synths, a special place should be reserved for Siegfried Brückner’s Monster Formant Modular.
For the record, here’s our definition of a monster synth:
We don’t know if Brückner’s monster formant modular synthesizer has a name, but we’re giving it the benefit of the doubt.
The Elektor Formant modular synthesizer is a DIY synth project, in the style of a Moog modular, that was documented as a series of articles in Elektor magazine, starting in 1977.
This is the mega big DIY Formant Mudular Synthesizer of my friend Siegfried Brückner from Duesseldorf/Germany.
Many Modules are prepatched on the rear into 3 systems. The red one for the Sequencer, the yellow one for the Basspedal and the green one for the melody solo. Everything is reconfigurable on the front.
