Customer Review

on 2 July 2013
I've occasionally glanced at the 'Music From Outer Space' website, but I've never been tempted to make any of the projects on offer as everything seems a bit old school in terms of circuit design and end appearance. Olivier Gillet's Mutable Instruments is considerably more cutting edge and the kits produced are refined. But coming back to modular synths after many years in the VST wilderness, I thought I'd buy Ray Wilson's book and see whether it helped me get back into the mindset of circuit design. Sadly, I found the book rather limited. An awful lot of space is devoted to MFOS's own 'Noise Toaster', which doesn't interest me and there's nothing I learnt about analogue synthesizer design either. Another chapter bizarrely becomes an instruction manual for the freeware 'Audacity' sound editor. I waited for some mention about eurorack modules but there's nothing in the book about this or even the US frac-rack standard. Overall, the book felt very bitty without a clear narrative driving the chapters forward and a haphazard structure.
