This is the official Spring Synth Meet in Chicago presented by Trash_Audio and Xart. We've hosted 6 of these events before and they keep getting more attention so much so that we had to start turning people away last time.
We're having The Harvestman from Washington, Make Noise from North Carolina, STG from Illinois, and other guests that will be announced. There will also be new products making their debut from a few manufacturers including some from the aforementioned.
We'll have to put a limit on the amount of people this time around because while these events are a great place to network, Xart's studio is getting too packed! Also, if you're a modular/pedal/synth manufacturer, I highly suggest you get in touch to have your gear laid out so people can experience it. If you're interested in coming please e-mail: email@example.com
Here are some videos of the past events:
