4ms Company has been designing and building innovative audio electronics for musicians since 1996. 4ms Company offers alternatives to traditional instruments with our poly-rhythmic clock modules that create evolving complex mathematical beat patterns, a resonator that can cast pop music into micro-tonal keys, a chaos generator that confounds attempts to make the same sound twice, a routing matrix that's played like an instrument, and many more innovative devices. Rather than replicate concepts from the past, we strive to turn unique ideas into playable musical tools that expand the possibilities of music. We also offer Do-it-yourself kits, and many of our designs are open-source. Hack away!
AJHSynth is headed up by Allan "J" Hall, who has been involved with synths, electronics and music for more years than he cares to remember! He started by building a guitar fuzz box at the tender age of 12 and an interest in synthesisers and electronic music soon followed, fuelled by an unhealthy overexposure to early Tangerine Dream, Pink Floyd, Vangelis and Kitaro. For the last 15 years he has been building and modding synth systems both for himself and other electronic musicians, as well as spending some time as a semi-pro musician playing keyboards in several rock and tribute bands. Allan spent five years as a service technician repairing and modifying Moog, Arp, Korg, Roland and other analogue synthesisers along with some Pro Audio design work, previous to this he spent two years designing and building "boutique" valve (tube) guitar amplifiers. AJHSynth are based near Bournemouth, on the South coast of England, where this small but enthusiastic bunch of synth heads now indulge their passion for all things modular!

Dave Solursh is the owner of Art For The Ears Ltd. He is a passionate music lover and holds a Bachelor of Fine Art in Electro-Acoustic Music from Concordia University. Dave got interested in the hobby of synth building about 6 years ago and has become an active member of many online synth communities & forums. The idea to build custom handcrafted skiffs & amp cases was born out of necessity as he was slowly amassing a huge collection of modules and had no cases to store them in. Dave has worked the last 15 years in the chalet/cottage building industry with a focus on fabricating hand crafted precast architectural concrete. During many of his concrete installations he would often incorporate reclaimed wood as an element in the overall working design of the build. Although concrete was the original idea for a business, working with wood ultimately became the passion.
We started Audio Damage in 2002 to bring creative and experimental tools to musicians, built and coded in the United States, with the highest quality workmanship.
Audiophile Circuits League
Audiophile Circuits League
Welcome to the Audiophile Circuits League. We are a group of musicians and engineers based in Berlin. We are in the very fortunate position of being able to design and build our own equipment, the kind of equipment we want to use. Of course, there are many other excellent companies making fantastic equipment – much of which we own and love – and so rather than trying to reinvent wheels, we go beyond classic designs. First we build devices that avoid problems we’ve encountered – everything from irregular performance to awkward connection placements. And we ensure consistent quality, using only carefully selected component, and assembling our equipment here in Germany.
A 100% analog self-sufficient, musical instrument that can be integrated into any configuration – be it in a standalone or modular fashion.

That Vintage Sound While many people love the sound of vintage gear, much of the new crop of gear promising to recreate the full, rich sound of synths of the 60's and 70's has tried to do it with contemporary components and modern replacement parts. This may lead to a lower price and easier sourcing on the production side, but often at the cost of compromised sound quality and functionality.
The story begins in the 1970s when we developed our first analogue synth. It was made to order for a musician and given the name SYNTHRA. When digital synthesizers hit the market, we believed that the day of the analogue synthesizer was over. As a result, it was to be many years before we built another synthesizer. In the meanwhile, we devoted ourselves to developing industrial electronics.

what makes sense to us Designing something that should only be our version of or our alternative of something else: well, no, this doesn’t make sense to us at all. We focus on small details, high quality materials and components, great design, ease of use. And mostly, because we have a defined need. When thinking about a new product, if these criteria are matched, we go on developing it and finalizing it. Filling that need with the best solution possible: this makes sense to us.

Kenton Electronics was formed in 1986 by UK musician John Price. "I was a professional keyboard player with a background in electronics and a keen interest in computing. I owned an Oberheim OBX synth, which I very much wanted to get MIDIed. Unfortunately, the only interface on offer cost a fortune, and did very little, so I decided to do make my own. This was not quite the big step it might seem, as I had already built my own digital interface to enable me to play the OBX from the keyboard of my Hammond Organ.

Make Noise was founded in 2008 by Tony Rolando, a self-taught electronic musical instrument designer who got started by obsessively reading amateur radio books at the public library, building electronics for artists, such as the light controlled mixer for Simon Lee's "Bus Obscura," working for Moog Music, and playing in bands for many years. After 3 years of isolation on a mountain top he founded Make Noise.

Øur ørigin is messy: a tiny, høt, stinky røøm scattered with resistør clippings and cables. Øut øf this synth cøttage came pøørly drilled cigar bøxes crammed tø the brim with a rats nest øf wires, half-dead batteries, and recycled cømpønents. They had labels that peeled øff in mild humidity and hinges that were held tøgether with høt glue, gaffer tape, and craft nails. Hand søldering was døne by a støned, øverwørked, and dehydrated art student, and if yøu were lucky yøur unit wøuld stay wørking a year after yøu’d purchased it. We’ve since stepped up øur game and learned a thing ør twø. Nøw øur prøducts are løøked øver by the watchful eyes øf experienced engineers and øur units are filled with søulless røbøts.
