Copying articles from other wikis

Where the licencing permits copying such as on Wikipedia or the Electronic Music Wiki. Insert an attribution template as the last item of text on the destination article, piping the name of the article on the remote wiki and substituting underscore for any spaces in the name. This can be just above the == References == heading or == See also == heading if there is one.

For example in article Patch (from Wikipedia:Synthesizer#Patch) insert {{From Wikipedia|Synthesizer}} or in article Modular synthesizer insert {{From Wikipedia|Modular_synthesizer}}
