DIY Eurorack Synth Module Kit ‘The Easiest On The Market’

The synthesizer heads take it even further; they can completely build their own instruments from scratch – and you can’t say the same thing about a mixer. Synth companies have taken notice to this trend, and have even begun offering build-your-own kits instead of a constructed object. It saves money on both ends, but if gives you the chance to create something of your own.
