I have been able to source all the parts at last and have ordered all the parts of the VCO.

I'd like to build a module every so often and would like to know what is the suggested build order for types and quantities.

ie: 3 VCO, so many of this and so many of that for full a function synth.

All the parts for 3 VCO's will be here next week, what is the logical next module and quantity please?

I think that depends entirely on what you want to do with your synth, that's the beauty of modular.

For me, a filter, ADSR and VCA are critical as I like to be able to "play" it with a keyboard. Others like to patch up modules to make crazy sounds which don't necessarily need a keyboard, ADSR or VCA.

Look at the menu of modules on the webpage, read the descriptions of what they do and use your imagination to decide what you think would be fun to play with next.

If you have a specific goal in mind that you could describe you might get better suggestions.

Although having a clear vision is good, I think that you should concentrate on having a funcional synth before concerning yourself with quantities. 1 Controller(sequencer, ribbon, keyboard, or joystick), 1 VCO, 1VCA, 1 Envelope Generator, 1 Filter. You can do alot with this combination.

Great, that seems to be what I'm looking for.

I'll be using this for control, anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks
