East Coast vs West Coast Synthesis

There is two types of Synthesis Methods that grew from the Robert Moog (east) and Don Buchla(west).

Here is an explanation from the creator of the Wiard 300 Grant Richter.

Fundamentals in Synthesis

There are three basic building blocks in sound production

1.Pitch (Frequency)


3. Loudness


We will explore in detail how these elements are used to sculpt your sounds. We will also give various patches with popular Eurorack and other format modulars.

These is the basic building blocks.

My Modular Grid


Hi my journey into Eurorack was a TipTop Happy Ending Rack and Power Supply Mutable Instruments Clouds, Sputnik Oscillator and Richter Wogglebug.

After a short time and watching Frank Murder’s You Can Never Have Too Many VCAs I bought Intellijel uVCA.

Many experiments not enough time.

Possible next modules: Wiard Envelator and Dual Borg by Malekko .
