Synth Glossary

A modular synthesizer is one where the structure of the synthesizer isn't fixed. There are a variety of modules available which can be plugged into each other. Tradionally these modules were physical boxes, but they can now be emulated with software and patched with on-screen cables....


This is one of the classic pieces in analogue synth history. Brian Eno still caries one around and Klaus Schule Schulze still uses his on every recording. The pin-block patching is a little strange at first, but the versatility is like that of a modular unit. You can patch anything into anything and the built-in reverb, while a little cheezy, can be anywhere in the signal chain.
