If you'd asked me 3 months ago what Expert Sleepers might release next I would have never have guessed an analog module. Yet, Andrew Ostler, the designer and engineer behind Expert Sleepers, did just that -3 analog modules in one week. In this conversation, I learn about Andrew's vision and what drives him to work on a certain module.

This recent analog exploration started with a resonant 2-pole filter (yep! not 4-pole). This lead to the two additional modules - a sine core VCO and a phaser.

Side note - my video is slowly going out of sync during this recording. This is because I tried to used Andrew's local recording in an attempt for better sound. His sound is great. That's what's important!
