SynthCube Acquires and Continues Music From Outer Space
As many of you know, Ray Wilson of Music From Outer Space passed away on July 21. There has been some speculation as to what would happen to MFOS. Ray Wilson's projects and website have been an incredible resource to the DIY community, and those looking to introduce themselves to the world of synth DIY. Well, I am happy to announce that SynthCube will be keeping the world of MFOS alive.
"SynthCube is delighted to announce the acquisition of Music From Outer Space. In cooperation with Ray Wilson's surviving spouse Debra, the 'Maiden of MFOS,' we are developing plans to extend Ray's work indefinitely. The MFOS website will remain in place, with all of its great content, humor and documentation. Plans are underway to continue to make the MFOS pcbs, panels etc available via our synthCube webstore, as well as other authorized MFOS stores and websites who choose to stock those items. Not only will the website and product line continue, plans are to extend it. Full kits, panel mount pcbs, reduced size euro-friendly boards, panels, pre-built products... all possibilities are on the table. More details to follow!
In honor of Ray Wilson, we will be establishing a memorial scholarship fund to support education in the areas of electrical engineering, audio, electronic music etc. We are also exploring avenues to use Ray's designs to supplement STEM teaching and training in a number of venues.
Existing MFOS inventory is available now via www.synthcube.com/cart. Plans are underway to restock any unavailable items.
Please refer any questions to us via the synthCube contact form or email."
