Are any of the talks going to be videoed for later enjoyment - I'm likely to miss them... again :(

Hi, have folks clocked this? Will Gregory Moog Ensemble

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/will-gre ... map-target

About 10-15 minutes walk from the Octagon, same date as SynthFest (not a coincidence, methinks) 19:00 - 21:00.

Another vote for videos most especially if the RW do an encore presentation of deconstruction of the Dr. Who theme. I cannot attend but would gladly pay a synthfest membership fee or something similar for access to video documentation.

...speaking at length about something is no guarantee that understanding is advanced.

Really looking forward to seeing you guys here in Sheffield on 6th Oct.

The show is even bigger yet again, and we've broken out into a larger, separate area for the seminars. Hopefully now even *I* will be able to see the Dr Who theme presentation this year! I'll be the one queueing up with an ARP Odyssey under my arm! :lol:

Some amazing exhibits, including a 3-oscillator analogue synth on a USB stick - that one intrigues me! Loads of modular kit and built systems, with a chance to speak to the makers and users. The big hitters are here too, including Yamaha, Roland, Korg and the like. Great chance to see some of the new Moog gear too. We've got people coming from all over the world. Nice to see software getting a foot in the door too, with the likes of Ableton, Bitwig and Yoshimi having a presence.

Yes, that huge Moog modular system is back too... ;)

I'll be looking after the main hall, and that will keep me on my toes, so apologies if I'm hard to track down on the day. I'll do my best to say 'hi' to anyone that manages to tackle me to the ground.

Please, this year, somebody grab a few of those bargains before my credit card sees them...

I won't be able to make it due to a family crisis, but I wish a great synth-nerdy day to all. Maybe next year!

Best wishes

Decided against a table this year so I can wander and enjoy more things. Looking forward to the Dr Who theme talk and Novation's history of the polysynth presentation.

Also getting there early to secure myself a mug. Last year's is wearing well, but surely one day these will be valuable antiques...

You can buy a mug. And a t shirt. When you do, introduce yourself to the nice lady who sells them and you will get a pleasant surprise.. :)

Sorry I missed some of you on the saturday evening, by the time we'd done the load out, and then realised I'd left my car keys back at the hotel, and then walked back across town to pick it up, and etc. etc. etc.
Still, top day out, and I may even now be the owner of a synth. Or at least, bits of one... ;)
