For February’s event we’re introducing a new theme called “Short Circuit Presentations“. The goal is a variation on our long form talks theme but offering a snappier multi-segment set of shorter talks with multiple presenters. This new theme and some format tweaks are based some great feedback from attendees at the December event along with some brainstorming with Eddie Corcoran, Michael O’Bannon, and Victoria Lundy. Thanks to Eddie for the theme name.
To attend you must register first. No Zoom account is required to attend, just the link you’ll receive via email after registration.

If you are in the market for a Deluge, now might be the time…
Back in December 2019 member Matthew Yost gave a great talk and performance on the Synthstrom Audible Deluge which piqued my interest. I just bought mine because the price is about to go up and they are about to add new features coming are a new wavetable synth; MPE support; and Euclidean sequencing, individual row lengths, moving kit steps horizontally and new playback directions – reverse and ping-pong.
So heads up, just saw this in their newsletter.
Those who may have been sitting on the fence about grabbing a Deluge that in less than a week’s time we’ll be adding $100 USD to the sale price, respecting how it’s now a completely different product to when we first put on sale, increased production costs and reflecting our commitment to continuing to update our baby.
You can read about the price increase here: https://synthstrom.com/why/
You have until Jan 31st 11:59pm (US ET) to order at the current $899 USD price.
