Hi, I bought a few of the effects in the Craig Anderton range and mounted them in a fracrack. My experience with electronics is minimal, but if you just be careful and follow the instructions closely, it turns out OK. Its good to perhaps know a little fault finding or circuit tracing in case things don't work, but you can probably get by without. All in all, I think they are pretty good value. au$0.04 omjn -----Original Message----- From: Tom Ritchford [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Friday, 13 July 2001 12:57 PM To: Loopers-Delight@loopers-delight.com Subject: Re: Paia Electronic Kits etc. PA5CALIO@aol.com wrote: Hey Everyone, I recently started checking out Paia's stuff (www.paia.com) they have electronic kits to biuld lots of differnet electronic music equipment (modular synth, synth, effects). A couple of questions have come into my mind. 1) How difficult are these things to put together. I plan on building some effects and a modular synthesizer from paia. I have very little experience. Will this be impossible for me? Answer: no. The kits are easy, you just have to be careful. Less careful than a lot of stuff involving modern microprocessors, even, they aren't QUITE as sensitive to heat. 2) Are there places where I can get these kits for cheaper than paia? I jsut started looking and haven't been really successful. Paia appears to offer teh cheapest modular synth kit and their effects kits seem pretty cheap too. Thanks a lot every one! I'd be shocked if you could get decent quality any cheaper than Paia. They've been around forever, they're reputable, they started many a young tinkerer down a solitary road filled with breadboards and metal boxes... Their Theremin is supposed to be an amazing value, too! I'd give them my top recommendation. /t .......all legal games of chess <http://solveChess.com/chess?refresh=0>...... .....programmer's documentation <http://solveChess.com/doc>..................
