Since the beginning of 2011, we've had an ongoing, cliffhanger adventure running in the form of David C. Lovelace's comic strip, The Packrat. If you're familiar with the synth-collecting rodent from previous issues of Keyboard, you know that he can't pass up a deal on a vintage synth, much to the chagrin of his spouse and friends, who have to live with his ever-growing collection.
Since January though, he's been at large, thanks to having built a time-traveling keytar. But wait--the stresses of time travel have fried some of the oscillators, stranding our hero in the past. Will he ever get back home, even with the help of synth geniuses like Bob Moog? Scroll down to catch up on the story, and get the latest issue of Keyboard for the latest installment! We'll also update this page once a month after the latest issue has hit newsstands.
