Well the fact that modulars often work by filtering signals with high 
amounts of harmonics is not an argument against that being synthesis.
Heck, there's even a commonly accepted name for this type of synthesis, 
which is subtractive synthesis

I've come across people arguing that the person using the modular is the 
synthesizer, rather than the modular itself, but i don't think that that 
is what gordon meant, yet i have no clue what it is that he did mean
