Random Video: Intro To Modular Synthesis by Somaa

Here's a nice modular basics tutorial by Somaa:

Modular Wild Presents TipTop Audio ZDSP - VC Digital Signal Processor

A new series by Raul Pena starts today.
This time it's all about the versatile Tiptop Audio ZDSP Voltage Controlled Digital Signal Processor, an open-source, cartridge-based digital sound-processing and generating platform for Eurorack

Tiptop Audio, together with some of the best known programmers in the music industry, are working to bring programs to the Z-DSP platform.

SiteTip: PatchPierre's Feedfest

Last weekend i started a new side-project that has all the analog modular synthesizer news you ever wanted in the form of RSS-feeds.
This is currently still a work in progress, new links will be added during the coming weeks/months.

This will probably eventually replace the sidebar on the right side of my PatchPierre.Net blog, and that will hopefully make loading my page a lot faster in the near future...
Enjoy!
