I bought my first wiard module - one of the first-run Borg filters modules in 1999, so yeah, 23 years. Kind of horrifying really!

Wiard 300 was my intro to modular in 2019.

Had been euro curious for years, kept seeing the wiard malekko. At some point I happened across the WaveForm City podcast by Darwin, learned of the 300 series. A few months later stumbled upon a system with Sequantizer, CVCO, WFC, Dual Mixolator, Envelators, Woggle bug, and Borg Filters.

No Instrument I've used hits me the way the 300 does.
Thanks Grant and Cary

For the sounds of the Wiard, I wonder what other synths it look like?

Bums me out these used to be made about an hour from where I currently live. Great for people in the UK though. LOL

How is the rev D different? I actually didn't know there were different versions - I wonder which one I have. Apart from the 300 series Borg 1 I have a blue Frac Borg 2.

Hopefully the bugs were fixed.

no interaction between LFO and Filter.

Two LFO's is 1V/oct

Resonance of Filter is very different, Auto-oscillation and saturation.
