PAiA Hall of Fame

Probably the coolest thing about PAiA is the people who build our designs - but with a twist. They tweak and mod; their creativity and resourcefulness are truly amazing. Here are some photos and site links of PAiA-philes who have made our products their own. For more updated photos, check out the photos from members on our PAiATalk community forum.

We are always looking for new creative submissions to PAiA's Hall of Fame. Click on the Contact link above and let us know you'd like to send us a submission. We'll respond with an email that will accept attachments.

From the bottom: Submixer, Mixer, Dual "Electronics Projects for Musicians" Noise Gates 1U rack, 1U "Hot Rod" analog synth using the old Ek-xx series analog synth modules -- 2 VCO's, 1 ADSR, 1VCA for those raw "Gary Numan"-type sounds, a 1U GM Midi module using a soundblaster daughterboard (only non-PAIA related thing in the picture), Midi Drum Brain, my Pygmy-on-Steroids, Midi2CV8, Thumpa Thump Box, and on top, my retro-looking Tubehead.  The Midi2CV8 drives the "Hot Rod" module.Lonnie P

Best Testimonial



When I was designing products in the 70's and 80's I never thought that more than 20 years later these products would become classics and mean as much to DIY Builders as they have. On the next page are some restored products, sometimes found in attics or rummage sales or on eBay, sometimes still used by the orignal owner. To all those supporters from so long ago, THANKS and here's a tribute to you. ~ John Simonton
