Synth Saturday at OSMM!


 Saturday, March 25, 2017 from 1:00 PM until 6:00 PM

Ocean State Maker Mill is happy to host the first Synth Saturday meetup at our newly-expanded makerspace in Pawtucket, RI. Whether you’re an experienced knob-twiddler, or are just curious about what this whole ‘modular synthesis’ thing is about, this is the perfect chance to gather with fellow New England synth nerds. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own synths, modules and racks. Headphones are encouraged, but we’ll also have a PA system available for a wider audio experience.
