Synth Builder's Prayer

Our Moog, which ARP in waveform,
Filter be thy Gain.
Thy waveshape be square.
Thy cutoff be 24dB,
As it is in Oberheim.
Give us this VCA our board of bread.
And solder together our circuits,
As we forgive those
Who think analogue is dead.
And lead us not into unwanted oscillation,
But decouple our supplies:
For sine is the pure tone,
And the power supply, and the modulation,
Forever and ever.

A shorter version:

In the name of the Fader, the Synth and the Holy Groove.
