I've written some articles as a follow-up to my monthly column that appeared in German Keyboard magazine. I hope you find it a fun and fascinating look into the synthesizer design process, and perhaps inspire some of you to take your own adventure exploring and creating with the SCOPE design software. First we start with a bit of background information...

The Frankfurt Musik Messe 2009 is over!

Now that Musik Messe 2009 is over, I'm looking forward to getting the final v1.0 of Solaris completed. We had quite a few visitors from Germany, Russia, Poland, France, Switzerland, Italy, and even Brazil (!), although overall, attendance seemed down at this year's show. Many other respected companies (Digidesign, Native Instruments, Access, DSI, G-Force) were not in attendance, and most felt that the current economic climate was the main reason behind the lowered attendance from both manufacturers and their customers.

Synthwire - "A Weekend Visitor..."

Monday, July 14, 2008: I have a neighbor who is very active in the synthesizer community. He goes on most forums by the name of 'Carbon111' and has previously had a chance to get hands on with one of my prototypes. I recently again decided to take the prototype over to his house to give him more hands on time, and he's put his impressions up on Synthwire.
