Buying Choices

Its Friday, so that must mean its time for Knobcon, fast becoming the daddy of synth meets, held at the Itasca Westin Northwest Hotel over this weekend (Sept 11th-1th). Its the brain-child of Suit & Tie Guy - he's also Mr STG Soundlabs - who make a variety of Modules for 500 and Eurorack format. He talks about it in Sonic TALK 416

We'll be posting all we find from Twitter and Instagram, Youtube for you to get a flavour of the show.
