To make things straight, I did study electronics at the University, more than 20 years ago. But I spent most of my professional career programming computers. This part of my life seems a century ago.
What decided me to come back to electronics after all this time ? A simple electronic layout on a musical web site showed me how easy it was to make a booster pedal for guitar.
So I bought a bit of hardware, built the thing and it worked.
There I was, with my first DIY electronic device in hand…
This blog will not only be about building a synthesizer, I intend to write a little to document my journey in gaining enough knowledge and confidence to tell myself I can make my own synthesizer.
Of course, you will see my progress as they happen… if they happen.
And if these articles encourage you to start your own projects, my job here is done.
