A few pictures from the 2007 Japan Synth DIY Summit held yesterday.
As usual, lots of beautifully made synths to see and try.

actually I don`t know anything much about it, I didn`t notice it until the end when people were packing up and snapped a quick photo.
I will ask around and let you know

I think the module with the green LED puts out CV and gate signals....and the third might be a VCF??
I think this is a pic of the PCB, might be totally wrong tho -

Thank you, Andrew, for introducing articles of the tiny modular (and nice to meet you in the summit).

Yes, the green one is VCO and the blue one is CV/Gate generator. The third one is also VCO. I have not started VCF yet but hope it can be out soon.

All of that is excellent! I especially like RJB's black-faced modular, with the large knobs for the most important functions, and the rounded-corner boxes to deliniate functions and modules. What a difference that makes...

I hope that the Japanese enthusiasts will become regular posters here! Outstanding work!

Edit: Thanks for the pics!

Hi Gan
I`m sorry I didn`t get to hear your tiny modular - Sad - next time.
The idea of a modular you can keep in your pocket is brilliant.
(&nice to meet you too)
