Synthesizers have been a major interest of mine since age 9 when my brother bought the Switched-On-Bach album. The cover had an amazing picture of a synthesizer and the music was captivating. Sadly, these costly machines were not accessible to mere mortals.
So, in 1977 at age 16 I built my first synthesizer from RadioShack parts and connected it to my home-brew CP/M computer.
Then in 1995 after a career in computers and robotics my interest reignited with Synthesizers.com to make modular synthesizers available to the masses. Here are some pieces of that story.
