A CUSTOM BUILT ANALOG SYNTH ON THE WAY
We’re excited to soon receive a custom built analog synthesizer currently under construction by friend, electronic performer, circuit bender and solder-er extraordinaire – Charles Seeholzer. It’s being built exclusively for Carlos Grasso for live performances. The basic module is a SoundLab MkII monophonic analog synthesizer kit modified with some extra goodies by Charles including an envelope follower, a modified Buchla keyboard and other custom touches. He and Carlos worked closely together with Mr. Grasso designing the front panel graphics and layout. The photos are the first stage of construction. We’ll post more photos and audio samples when it’s finished.
