Electronic composer and music tech journalist Jim Aikin is an icon in the synth community, having been a longtime editor at Keyboard magazine, a contributor to Electronic Musician, Mix, and other popular magazines. In this video, he gives us an overview of the modular synth he's been building and demonstrates a four-part multi-timbral patch. In the upcoming parts 2 and 3, we'll take a closer look at the individual modules used in this patch. Incidentally, he's also an award-winning science fiction author. We think this patch and his rig is pretty sci-fi too!
