Synth DIY UK 2010

Post by Godric » Sun Feb 21, 2010 2:30 pm

I've booked my room for this event, so I look forward to meeting some of you there, with the Jubilee. Maybe Tony will cast an ear over my filters, not quite sure I have the tuning set quite right.

I expect to be there as usual, having attended the last however many years. And I'm also hoping to be able to build something new for this year, having missed doing so last!

Details/room booking for those who don't know them are here:

Some photos from last years event (and previous years):

It might also be better to move this to 'Music Tech DIY', it will probably get a bigger audience there... (any moderators watching, Paul, Sandy?)

With respect Sandy I'd rather it wasn't moved - my target audience is the Oakley mob :bang:

i was just checking through and noticed the picture of Tom Wiltshire's modules. Are they his own or bought? They look a lot like modcan. Does he design for modcan?

Any chance you could put it back where I originally posted - the essence of the message is to say that my oakley will be at the event - this is primarily of interest to the Oakley forum.

Sorry Godric, I didn't mean to steal your thunder :oops:. But I'm certain you'll get greater coverage in the DIY thread, and if you bring that beauty to Cambridge, you're going to need to plasticoat it or something, as there will be people aplenty drooling all over it! (You could link to this thread from the one with all the pictures in it?)

No, they are Paul Maddox's - he is another regular at the event, and indeed I think he helps Neil Johnson out with some of the organisation.

I think they are probably his own design - here is his website, but I couldn't find them on there after a quick scan:

Lots of like-minded synth geeks shooting the breeze, checking out the fruits of each other's labours, tweaking knobs, patching and poking around, and generally making all manner of weird noises. Personally I'm amazed that some people achieve so much: it often makes me wish I could do more throughout the year, and it always inspires and fires me up to try harder for next year!

Yes, Tom does some of the digital design work for Bruce. Nice modules.

I should be at Cambridge too - I haven't missed one yet - and it was due to the very first Synth-DIY all those years ago that I started doing all this modular malarkey.

Looking forward to this. I'll be bringing a few of the new modules for people to have a look at.

:bananaguitar:

Colin Fraser will be coming along too and no doubt he will be bringing along a Cirklon sequencer.

:banana:

And I am seriously thinking about not having a curry on both nights this year.

Am I heck... :emt:

Curry??

Post by Godric » Thu May 20, 2010 4:32 pm

No one mentioned curry.

I'll have a tarka dhal, brinjal bhaji and mushroom biriyany.

Next night I'll have tarka dhal, bhindi bhaji and chana masala

Godric

BTW is there any beer available?
