I'll 2nd that book, though it is EXTREMELY difficult to locate a copy.
And the author is nowhere to be found.

I did. I play bass and built a full modular system - minus accurate VCOs
and a hand keyboard. I did build a foot board but mostly it is used to
switch to a pre-patched channel, however the footboard actual just
outputs a switch pressed signal that is decoded to which switch pressed
by another module.
I figure using my bass, I didn't need a good VCO. To make a VCO useful,
I would need a pitch to control voltage converter.
