It would really be a big mistake to get involved in modular synths anyway...
From what I can tell:
they will make my brain explode with wiring schematics
it might be the equivalent of wiring the crystal structure of a folded molecular helix
i already have enough things that make things sound like other things
they are wayyyyy out of my league with less than no money in my pocket
i will officially be a crazy person: i think of modular synth people as the Trekkie Cosplay of music, the type who talk to you about their collection of figurines and their manuscript of Episode 232 they had signed by Uhura. Sorry.
kinda really want to know what the world of modular effects is all about.
Polivoks filters? Harvestman? WMD? Flame? So many tempting things...
My big questions:
How do you / can you have a system that runs exclusively effects? What would I need to get audio into the modular system? Any dangers / problems?
What's up with powering them up? How does that work? EXPLAINITLIKEIMFIVE.
What are the modules that offer the most complexities? The really bizarre ones? The necessities?
Share pics and any links if you have them... Thanks in advance.
I'll be twisting Uhura's knobs while I wait for a reply...
