Portland Synth Library

Did you know there was a "synth library" in Portland, OR? Well, there is. Some details on it follow, but before that, they are seeking funding on GoFundMe here. This one is in via lord zool.

"S1, in partnership with 4MS Company, is home to the Synth Library, a publicly-accessible resource in Portland, Oregon. Since spring 2016, the Synth Library has hosted regular workshops to educate and empower new people and communities to engage with modular synthesis.

After attending a sliding-scale introductory workshop, participants can sign up for open library hours to access any of the modular rows and other gear available in the space. A facilitator will always be in the room to help answer any questions that come up during your exploration.

The Intro to Synthesis course (or an equivalent competency exam) is required before gaining access to the Synth Library; this course costs $25 and includes one month of membership. Monthly membership is $15. Scholarship opportunities are available for those unable to pay.

We’re committed to representing and empowering all types of people and providing the opportunity to learn comfortably from and alongside peers. To this end, we offer female/non-binary-only courses, as well as open enrollment courses available to all.

Artists-in-Residence at S1 will have the opportunity to check out gear from the library to compose and perform pieces. We will begin accepting applications for our residency program soon.

Sponsors: Control Voltage

Donors: 4MS, Ableton, ADDAC System, AI Synthesis, Anti-Matter, Bastl, Befaco, Bird Kids, Ciat-Lonbarde, Control, Erica Synths, Glow Worm Cables, Hexinverter Électronique, Koma Electronik, Ieaskul F.

Free Control Voltage 'Getting Into Modular' Series Workshops in Portland, OR

via Control Voltage

"Session 1: Next Wednesday, September 6th, 6-7pm, Free

We're super psyched to be restarting our basic synth classes this fall! This series is called Getting Into Modular, and is a set of recurring casual presentations that answers the questions we hear in the shop often "How do I get into modular synthesis?" or "Where do I even start!?!?". Each session is an hour in length with ample time for questions, meant to de-mystify the modular synthesizer module by module using the eurorack systems we have set up in our shop.

This is a great way to learn the basics of patching a modular synth, and to see if you're into the workflow and flexibility that an open-architecture synthesizer provides.
This first session is all about Sound Sources, and here’s an outline of the topics we’ll be discussing:

Generating Sound
Oscillators - Shape designer
Noise - Every frequency
Filters - Feedback loops

Sync 02 Synth Event in Portland Set for March 4th

via Analog Industries, where you'll find additional details:

"Sync02 is the second in what is apparently going to be a yearly 1st-Saturday-Of-March affair. Last year's event went off well enough that we decided to do it again, despite the torential rain. As you may remember if you attended, Sync01 took place at JWZ's excellent CodeWord venue in San Francisco.

My goal is to never do the event in the same place twice, so this year's event is in Portland, on Saturday, March 4th at Holocene. It is over twice as big as last year's, so we got a partner. Audio Damage is doing it in partnership with Control Voltage. The manufacturers that will be exhibiting include:
