Control Voltage is a musical synth store. You can try instruments in ear person. You can't do that at Amazon or the synth warehouse! They are one of the nodes of Portland synth community and well worth meeting up with, including at their free events. And you can stop by anytime to try and learn about synths.

This afternoon they give a free introduction to two things you would do with modular synthesizers. They will give an introduction to voltage controlled oscillators and frequency modulation. If you don't know what that means, you should come. If you do know what that means, you should come. And bring your ears. Because at the end of the talk, and some hands-on experimentation yourself, your ears will understand too!

Patching your musical ear vision at Control Voltage 3742 NE Mississippi. All ages. 1PM-2 Free
