Howdy, I’m Brett Buddin, 👋

I’m a software engineer in New York City, and focus mostly on distributed systems in Go. I spend my free time making music with modular synthesizers and writing music-related software.

Recent Work


As part of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, I’ve been hard at work with KamranV and dublab to build a free DAW plugin for mixing/mastering quadraphonic content called QUARK. It aims to provide a workflow for musicians to create quadraphonic mixes that can be distributed through normal stereo mediums. The project just entered beta so you should check it out. 🤘

Eurorack Stand

This was designed and printed for my Make Noise 7U case in collaboration with my friend JP Powers. We’ve published the files on Thingiverse.

Shaden at GopherCon 2018

I gave a short demonstration about my quirky modular synthesizer, Shaden, at GopherCon 2018.
