Modular synthesis is back! In this panel locally owned and internationally recognized brand Pittsburgh Modular discusses why this old technology is resurfacing and how it is changing the way music creators work. Joining them on the panel are representatives from Roland, creators of the legendary TR-808, TR-909, TB-303 and many more classics. These companies are responsible for the technology that's not only made much of modern music possible, but have inspired generations of musicians to push the boundaries. Joined by  guest artists King Britt and producer/music technologist Nate Mars, the panel will discuss creative approaches for working with modular synths in studio or live performance and what about workflow with modular gear inspires creativity in new directions.
