<< PAiA. Oh yeah, isn't there some guy in Texas making synth stuff
too? You might want to check out some of his stuff. >>

my first synth, circa 1974 ( ? ) was a paia, before they even had a keyboard,
it used odd wires for contacts with buttons ( literally shirt buttons ) as
the part you fingered. third was a used paia with a keyboard. before that, i
was just test oscillators, mono tube tape recorders from pawnshops and odd
junk it built from circuits inspired from my ham radio days.
do you have a url for the gentleman from texas ?
one thing that has amazed me is this resurgence in analog modulars. i`d swear
there are more available now ( and better and less expensive in some cases by
far, motm would seem to be an example of that ) than in the "glory days" of
the 70`s.
i`m reworking my "future plans / wish list" and the motm triple filter module
has moved up to near the top based on the enthusiastic things i`ve read from
folks on the list. what a great time to be able to rejoin the analog
movement. would never have left except for money troubles due to health/ life
crisises. i`m glad to be back!
