I'm an "old-school patcher".
I'm the prophet of MINIMALISM, the prophet of Single VCO Configurations / Patches.
And for some good reasons.
*- VCO modules aren't cheap, usually.
*- Often they don't offer all the desired waveforms (most of the times the sine wave is missing).
*- Sometimes, they do. But, most likely, not simultaneously. So you can't make a multi-wave sound.
*- Or they do, and simultaneously, but the module is too deep for most of the racks or skiffs
(i.e.: Deopfer A-110) can't fit the Moog 104 HP skiff, nor the cheaper skiff clone from Behringer
*- More often than not, your dream module has been D-I-S-C-O-N-T-I-N-U-E-D (i.e.: 2HP OSC, Doepfer A-147, ALL MODULES by Mutable Instruments, ...)
My aim is to encourage the use of "simple", analog (or "digitanalog" *) modules,
which retain the taste of the original modules of the 60s and 70s classical vintage synths.
I'm often focusing on minimal setups, to help beginners build a physical starter synth even with a limited amount of modules.
Coming from the software programming world, I'm loyal to the KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid!) principle.
But sometimes I'm (b)eaten by my inner demons.
* Meaning discrete logic integrated circuits - not based on the nowadays' horrible tendency of using microcontrollers (often, Arduino or Teensy based).
