This is Beyond the Patch: the podcast about synthesizers: modular and otherwise! 

Welcome to the first episode! This week we give a general overview of modular synthesizers. We know we can't cover everything in one episode, so we start by discussing some basics. There is so much we just could not cover in this overview. Don't worry, we will expand in great detail in future episodes.
