Art + Music + Technology

Sometimes you can't plan a good thing - you have to let it come to you. I wanted to talk to another 'maker' in the modular synth area, and reached out to Andrew Kilpatrick of Kilpatrick Audio; he was enthusiastic about it, and a call was scheduled.

A few days later I saw a posting on Synthtopia for a new Kilpatrick synthesizer - the Phenol. What luck! So our chat includes discussions about his Euro modular creations, the development of his own format (the Kilpatrick Modular format, a 4U variant), and the design decisions behind this new device: the Phenol patchable synth. While talking about this, we learn a lot about Andrew's background and his design process when creating new devices.

This was an awesome talk, and I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed doing it!
