John Simonton RIP
John Simonton is overleden aan kanker.

Wie..............wel de man die diy synth bouw voor iedereen bereikbaar maakte, de man achter PAIA.
In zeer korte tijd is de synth wereld weer een held derde dit jaar.

Van de synt diy list:

It is with heavy heart that I report the passing of John "PAiA" Simonton,
sometime last week, following a battle with cancer.

John created PAiA something like over 30 years ago, and was a constant
source of inspiration, education, and affordable synthesizers to at least a couple
of generations of us. I know that I am immersed in my career today, in part, because of the
knowledge and skills I obtained from reading John's "Lab Notes" in Polyphony magazine
(ancestor to Electronic Musician) and building his synthesizer circuits.

I had a computer sequencer, D/A and multiplexed S/H outputs YEARS before
almost anyone else I knew because of his designs (mid-to-late '70s!), and my
early experiences with his 8700 computer/controller laid hugely valuable groundwork for my
subsequent involvement with computers and other hi-tech meldings of art and machines.

And, of course, my fond memories of solder fumes and analog circuitry
eventually led me right here to MOTM...

I never met him in person, but we shared some great emails over the last
few years--- I just had to thank him for affecting my life so positively--- he said he
always got a kick out of hearing about the success of his customers in their 30s who first
bought a kit from him back when they were teenagers (like me!)...

If I hear anything further about services, etc., I'll pass them on--- but
mainly, I just wanted to speak up in honor of this fine gentleman and genius--- I shall greatly
miss his presence in this world. My sincere condolences to his family and PAiA

Thank you, John!!!!! Rest well, my friend.
