Yeah right. Stay away from this one guys, it's got "FBI" written all over
it. One sign that you know anything about synth building, and in a matter
of days you'll have the local District Attorney and a S.W.A.T. team
esorting all of your schematics and carefully built secret weapons out your
front door - to the delight of those trash hungry net-slagging journalists.

...Oh sorry, net paranoia's got me down...
...too much time on alt.drugs.hemp .....

Start at the archive;

Look for anything in there on "Electronotes Preferred
Circuit Collection" by Bernie Hutchins, "Electronic Music Circuits"
by Barry Klien and order them.

If you don't study electronics in school and want to get more electronics
info, get "The Art of Electronics" by Horowitz and Hill.

...but... uhhhh, this is all just hearsay ya understand - I don't know
nothin' about it...
