I've not been to Cambridge before and therefore not attended the Synth DIY UK (a gathering of synth builders and modifiers) show either. But both were a pleasant surprise, the city is a wonderfully picturesque place with punts on the river, students on bikes and the feel of a place of learning. The show, now in it's sixth year at Robinsons College brought many makers from all over the country and some from overseas. The austere brick complex of the college is not unlike being inside a level of a classic shoot'em up like Quake or Doom, as organizer Neil Johnson put it. On display were several Oakley Modular systems, Maplin, E&MM, Doefper, EMS, Chameleon and many more. We spoke to Neil, the event organizer and creator of a souped-up Jen SX1000 in the first of a few short pieces from the show that celebrates it’s 10th year next year... Thanks to all at the show for being so welcoming. Nick Batt
