Synthetic Sound Labs



SteamSynth – Personal project of SSL’s owner Doug Slocum, this large modular synth was inpired by the SteamPunk art movement and his love of old technologies. It’s also the inspiration for this web-site’s name.

The panels use black printed circuit board material, allowing real copper foil lettering. Standard knobs are decorated with buttons from a fabric store. Patch cords were hand made with cloth covered wire to complete the illusion.

The electronics behind the scenes are a combination of SSL custom designs, and those from YuSynth (Yves Usson)MFOS (Music From Outer Space)PAiA ElectronicsKen “Cat Girl” StoneMarc Bareille – Papareil Synth Labs.
