I’ll admit: this video isn’t as easy to dive right into as the one above, but building your own EDM isn’t exactly for everybody. For MEs who enjoy the occasional dabble in EE for fun, this one’s for you! Word of warning: this isn’t as simple as Macgyver-ingyour uncle’s drill press into a knee mill!
