just learning about this from synthcube email about porting stock to their site (i haven't been on muffs in some time).

i learned more about electronics and snythesis from building his modules than any other place - he was committed not only to creating a really fun, unique and playable system for creative musicians, but also to helping people learn about electronics and more affordable access ala diy. his module/build manuals were complete, instructive and dedicated to sharing information. it was a totally immersive and fun way to learn. he was always helpful and made time to answer all my dumb inquiries and questions over the years.

sad i missed the original announcement - i owe a lot of my artistic development to the spirit of blacet research.

thank you!

I remember Mr. Blacet as a very decent friendly guy. I'm happy I had the opportunity to buy some of his modules. The VCO still impresses me a lot. Thanks you John!
