Music Thing reader Kelan Champagne read this post about building a DIY synth for £70, and was inspired: "After some looking around I settled on the Paia Fatman. I started this weekend, and so far, so good. It was only $180 for the parts and rack-mount panel." He's just sent me some pictures: This is his keyboard-filled apartment. This is the kit as it arrived. Step one: resistors (I love that picture!). A lot of soldering and a moderate amount of Mountain Dew (too much gives you the shakes, not good for soldering) and he had this. Stay tuned for more Kelan & Fatman updates!
