WHAT MAKES A MODULAR ICON?
Many of the most influential electronic music pioneers of the last 60 years provided the source audio for this diverse collection of preset patches: Jean-Michel Jarre, Steve Porcaro, Mark Isham, Michael Boddicker, Jeff Rona, Benge, and others. And the audio was made with some of the rarest modular systems: Keith Emerson’s custom Moog modular synths, an ARP 2500, Roland System 700, a Buchla modular, TONTO (made famous by Stevie Wonder and reported to be the most expensive modular synth system in the world), and other rare vintage hardware.
