Call the Synthbulance!

Got twisted patch cables? Are your LFOs terminally desynced? Who you gonna call? 

You could try Synthbulance, Zetsumetsu's mobile response to any modular emergency, which rocked up to Knobcon 22 this weekend. Designed to 'deliver art with a sense of urgency', it's a complete mobile modular set-up housed in a lovingly overhauled and converted 1986 ambulance.

Now in its 10th year, Knobcon is an annual US gathering of modular freaks and manufacturers, featuring electronic music performances and workshops, as well as showcasing new and just plain cool synth tech from a range of uber-DIYers and pro outfits.

The Synthbulance was a star attraction even before bug-eyed conventioneers made it into the venue, lugging that massive modular rig and a less-than-soothing lighting set-up to complete the experience.

Check it out above and in the video from Synth Diy Guy below. For more details and future chances to see it in the flesh get over to zetsumetsu.com now.

I'm lucky enough to be MusicRadar's Editor-in-chief while being, by some considerable distance, the least proficient musician on the editorial team. An undeniably ropey but occasionally enthusiastic drummer, I've worked on the world's greatest music making website in one capacity or another since its launch in 2007. I hope you enjoy the site - we do.
