Forget knitting: gather together with your mates and build your own modular synthesizer!

Via CDM designer Nat, we’ve learned that a DIY Modular Synth Group is getting started in Melbourne. Check out their growing forum here:


(You’ll likely see some useful information even if you’re not anywhere near Melbourne.) So here’s the next question: could this idea spread across the globe, with DIY makers building modular (and non-modular) synths and sound gear? I like that idea quite a lot; we’d just need a studio space here in New York, for instance. Let’s put together our heads and help the revolution spread. And if you already have such a group, let us know about it!
