Anderton's EPFM book is still regarded by many to be the best method of
for do-it-yourselfer (diy'ers). The projects are basic and PAiA still
many of the kits. The CLM6000 opto-isolater is available from a number
of places
including PAiA and Midwest Analog Products. Midwest Analog Products
practice on EFPM kits before tackling their moderate complexity diy
synth and
effects kits.
