"John L Rice Goes Over his 5U Modular System at the PNW Synth Gathering 2010.  Note this is a module overview, not a music demo. There is some brief modular audio at the end of Part 2 and in Part 3.  See John's YouTube channel for what he creates with his modular systems. BTW, I spoke to John at the gathering and he only had one and a half hours of sleep prepping his system before the event. Crazy man! LOVE THE T! :)"

 "This is a just for fun bug music patch. Just testing what happens when feeding a lot of FM stuff into an STG Mankato filter that is self oscillation. No demo and no trick this time so if you don't like noise or bug music, skip this one :)" MATRIXSYNTH T at 4:11

  1. sending t shirts only to US or world?

  2. The shirts are great quality. Mine has been washed at least a dozen times and the logo is still as bright as ever.

  3. Get a Matrixsynth Tee. It improves your mixes, makes your ground loops go away, fixes your room acoustics, and they just plain look cool.

  4. The 2009 AHNE shots are me (just left of center) and UMOP Dave (far right) in the top photo, and a somewhat blurry me holding the Thingamagoop in the bottom one.

  5. Thanks Seth. I updated the title/caption.

  6. Matrixsynth -

    Are you running the DSI Prophet5/'08 forum? We're trying to track down the owner. Thanks.

    - The Analog Organist

  7. The guy in Five-G wins :D that shop is amazing..
