Who We Are
Our company's main aim is to distribute modular systems and synth modules in Europe and the whole world. Apart from that we consider it important to have the most popular analog synths in stock, and also to have the rare, almost legendary pieces as well. Our goal is to distribute analog (modular and semi-modular) systems, at the same time though, a wide range of quality studio equipment is also available from us.
Another important part of our work is to contribute to the analog and modular synthesizer community by means of gaining popularity and raising awareness. Apart from distribution, we are happy to dedicate time and effort to keep the discourse alive between experienced users and newcomers in the community. We regularly take part in events, workshops and we also organize them. You can check out our next event on our Facebook page. We are eager to provide informative and entertaining videos of our products on our Youtube channel.
As representatives of the manufacturers distributed by our company we are able to keep our customers up to date with information about any distributed product in question.
Building a professional recording studio above the showroom was a continuous effort from our side. Having installed and distributed the best tools from Manley Labs, Dangerous Music and Universal Audio and a pair of massive ATC speakers, we started offering solutions for independent labels, musicians and our customers to test and get the best out of their music projects. The studio has been slowly becoming a small hub for local and international artists. We have also started focusing on helping customers to sell their used gear on Studio Gear Exchange. This year we also debuted with our international meet named CV Fest Budapest: a hub for producers and composers, synth manufacturers and distributors along with the organisers of the most well-known festivals and venues... all in one event. This year, we also took a key role in the development of the first Hungarian eurorack module: the Kasleder Acid Fuzz.
It was always our dream to bring manufacturers close to our community in Central and Eastern Europe, so after the 3rd participation of Budapest Music Expo where we have already demonstrated Keith McMillen products as official distributors among eurorack modules and analog synthesizers, we hosted almost a dozen manufacturers with their new and custom products. It happened so quickly: at one point we counted more than 35 manufacturers whose products we sell, and also more than 1000 eurorack modules are available directly from stock!
We made a lot of friends at NAMM and brought live coverage directly to our audience. It was also unforgettable to meet the new manufacturers and the pioneers with their latest creations. Lasting partnerships with Tiptop Audio, 4ms Company, and also Make Noise was formed around that time in California. It has always been our mission to bring the latest and the best acommpanied with the most open-minded and educational workshops and presentations, while being both product- and synthesis-specific at the same time. Our workshops have already covered a wide range of areas in modular synthesis including, drum sequencing, clock signals, the Buchla Music Easel, and so on.
Our showroom was opened in Budapest - a place where all customers, let them be beginners or professionals can interact, enquire and have fun with us while enjoying our continuous support. After organising a few synth meets - one of the first few in Hungary and Central Europe - we started to expand our media sections with full-blown and exclusive blogposts on Modularsynth.hu, articles and video content on our Youtube-channel. We had to listen to these wonderful synths on something, so we chose a speaker family with value for money and top-notch build-quality: we are proud dealers of Monkey Banana speakers ever since!
Starting out as hobby musicians, we were dreaming about managing our own store. At that time there had only been a few now cultic stores based around modular synths. We also started out slowly with 5-6 manufacturers, among them we were happy to deal with Expert Sleepers, Metasonix and Bubblesound.
