  1. You know, showing people how to more easily enter the world of modular synthesis is about on the same ethical level as Walter White explaining how to make extra money with nothing more than a few bits of laboratory glassware and a basic knowledge of chemistry.

      1. Too true.

        GAS is awful one you are into modular , as there is always one more thing to you “have” to get. The fact that most of the little addons are 150 or so bucks really adds up.

        Luckily, it is pretty easy to sell the modules off for close to what you paid if they are still in good shape. Can’t say that about most new gear.

  2. These vids helped me a lot in understanding modular synthesis and choosing my first system. Great stuff!
