Closing track from my modular set at the Tokyo Modular Festival 2014, visuals by BR-laser from Richard Devine on Vimeo.

Last track of my live modular set at Tokyo Modular Festival 2014. Mesmerizing laser visuals by BR-Laser. The module used is a creation from BR laser, and makes a laser projector work in the fashion of an analog oscilloscope in X/Y mode. The signal flow from the interface module to the laser is fully analogue, because of this the visuals are extremely responsive, and the module can connect to RGB laser projectors.

TRASH_AUDIO & Muffwiggler Synth Meet 14

We hope you had a great time at the TRASH_AUDIO & Muffwiggler Synth meet 14. Thanks to the manufacturers that came, the community that participated, the artists that performed and Muffwiggler for hosting. We’ve been fortunate enough to have these events bring us to both coasts multiple times and bring out the best people.

Matrix summed up the experience best, “I was planning to check out the gear and take some direct audio video but I ended up spending the entire time chatting with people. I do have to say, that actually is the best part of events like these for me. You get to meet people you only know online face to face. You get to talk shop and just about life in general with like minded individuals. The gear is great, but it’s the people that actually make the event. If you ever have a chance to go to a synth meet, do it. You won’t regret it.” Again, thank you for coming and thank you even more for leaving. Until next time!

This 2 minute video has less than 10 seconds of the actual Synth Meet. I’m certain more photos and video will pop up and this post will be continually updated. If you have photos and/or videos you’d like to share please e-mail

Muffwiggler Store

We’re the utmost excited to announce that Muffwiggler now has a store and that TRASH_AUDIO’s Synth Meet 14 is part of it’s storefront grand opening in Portland, OR on May 24th.

From Mike McGrath:

Well this is one exciting post for me to be making :)

I have partnered up with Cyrus Rex, and together we have created a company, Muffwiggler, LLC. We have invested a significant amount of cash and will be opening the MuffWiggler Store today.

Initially a webstore, we will be opening a physical storefront as well later this month manned by Steve ‘ignatius’ Westbrook, Ned Wahl, and Rico Loverde. We have a building in Portland, Oregon (that’s right Cali and other out-of-state Americans, HUGE TAX ADVANTAGES!), fulltime staff to check, test, carefully package and quickly ship your order, and an absolutely astounding inventory of some of the very best gear ready to ship immediately.
