This Modular Synthesizer Is Made For Kids
In this video from DivKidVideo, we get acquainted with the child-friendly Eurorack modular synthesizer that intends to aid in introducing children to using synthesizers to create music.
From information provided in the video’s description:
I recently worked alongside Mylar Melodies showcasing and exhibiting modular synths (specifically Eurorack) to children (and some adults / parents) in the Science Tent at Deer Shed festival. Deer Shed is a family friendly festival with a large number of kids and parents and the Science Tent gives them a chance to come and try soldering, make slime, chemistry workshops, build raspberry pi units and come and make music and play on euro rack synthesisers or try out making music on a Ableton with guys from a local Ableton group.
For the event I tried to put together the best Eurorack synthesiser that I could that was a mean little groove box of beats, melodies, bass, FX and some more out there fun stuff. So here’s what I used, how I patched it and how it went.
Given that children are typically very hands-on, its easy to see how effective this modular synthesizer can be in stimulating music creation among youngsters. Of course, this Eurorack would be great fun for anyone and not just children.
