We love synths and there is nothing quite like the flexibility and aural variance that you can get from a synth, even with the small 25 key synths (such as the Novation Bass Station and the Arturia MicroBrute), right upto the classic Moogs. We are also big fans of the Roland AIRA. Many of these Synths are available to try out in our store, where you can also talk to one of our experts.
As mentioned above, the majority of the synths on these pages are available to buy in our music superstore (between Poole and Bournemouth in Dorset, UK). They are also ready to buy online, right here on this website, which is a Google Certified Shop with a huge pile of glowing Feefo reviews.

The synthesizer has been forging new sounds, enabling ground-breaking music, and even creating entire genres since the 1960s and 70s when Bob Moog first brought the compact synthesizer to the masses and inspired musicians to experiment with new electronic sounds. Since then, instrument pioneers and advances in technology have brought us a whole host of weird and wonderful instruments, but during that time the fundamentals of synthesis have not really changed, and despite the many advances in digital technology things have gone full circle and the basic synthesizer is making a resurgence.
This article takes a look at the fundamentals of synthesis, and aims to point the reader in the right direction when it comes to choosing your first synth.
