It’s sad that most Radio Shack stores are closing. I could go into the details of this but it has already been much talked about. You can read about why it failed here.

While looking through my local store, I came across some very cheap MIDI couplers and the littleBits Korg Synth Kit. With a savings of about $50 on the kit, I had to pick one up. Let the synth building begin!
