Look Mum No Computer Shows How To Build A Korg MS20-Style LP Filter

Brace yourself for a tornado of synth-based advice as Sam Battle runs you - quite literally - through building your own low pass filter in hardware.  

If you've not come across the Look Mum No Computer YouTube channel, you're in for a treat. Sam Battle, who describes himself as a "musician and inventor", takes a high-energy approach to his videos in which he shows you how to create synths and other instruments entirely from scratch. In his latest video below, he's demonstrating how to make a Korg MS20-style low pass filter - so strap yourself in and check it out!

In amongst the manic presentation is some great advice on how to prep and build your own synth hardware - you might want to pause for breath if you're actually following along with your soldering iron - but in the end, it really works! There's more modular madness on his channel page too.

If you want to learn DIY, modular and eurorack synth design and build skills at a slightly more manageable pace, be sure to check out the pro video courses in the Ask.Audio Academy: https://ask.audio/academy?nleloc=category/audio/topic/eurorackmodular
