some old modular in my back shed

Some pics of a modular built in 2004-5. Originally it was to be a paper-faced Serge clone; all the 1st series of modules, which is what happened for the 1st eight panels. The 2nd eight got a bit of a mix with CGS, Patchell and a few other modules, plus some of the 2nd & 3rd gen Serge designs.

The pictures are a pretty mixed batch, some from movies, tv shows, photographers & artists that I like. Some from my own photos of favorite places or pets, others from Splendor Solis and other alchemical texts.

This synth simply wouldn't exist without all the help and kindness of Ken Stone.
Wish I had built it with bananas and in smaller cases so I could shift it without help.

  1. What a very cool synth this is Andrew. Love the paperface artwork.
