History

There isn’t much history to tell yet, but the little there is you will find that here.

In early 2019, it might have been around January/February 2019, a very good friend visited me showing his OP-1 synthesizer from Teenage Engineering. I didn’t know at that time but the bug was planted in me…

Early March 2019 I couldn’t take it any longer, I had to finally get started with synthesizers, which I wanted unconsciously already since a late teenager but it never really happened. So I got myself a workstation Roland FA-06, great workstation!

But that bug that had been planted in me wanted more…

So it didn’t took me long that I started to get that kind of weird feeling that modular synthesizers might be just the right thing for me but I wasn’t for 100% sure yet. So by end of March I bought the Behringer Neutron that hybrid modular thingy. Lovely device and it kind of hyper-spaced me into the real modular synthesizers. From March 2019, till now (July 2021) I haven’t got much of a night sleep, always busy with (modular) synthesizers, checking, reading, playing with it and recently focussing more on kind of reviewing the Eurorack modules; though the idea of reviewing came around early 2020.

By almost exactly mid May 2019 I became member of modulargrid.net forum where you can find me on a regularly basis.

After heavy investigations, reading and checking stuff from about end of March 2019 onwards, barely sleeping at all, finally, my first module I got it by mid June 2019, continuing spending tons of time in further investigating and my first rack I got it by early July 2019, finally! Since then my modular-synthesizer-adventure broke loose 😀 Modular synthesizers started to overtake my life in a way and well yeah, I just love it 🙂

Since 18th of June 2020 this website exists. In this existing version it is since Tuesday, the 29th of December 2020.
