Tiptop Audio and Lattex Plus join together to host MEFF, a two-day modular synthesizer exhibition in the artistically vibrant city of Florence, Italy. MEFF celebrates the manufacturers of Modular Synthesizers and electronic music technology entrepreneurs. It takes place from March 24-25 2018.
To help celebrate MEFF 2018 we partnered up with TipTop (the modular synth company behind the event) and ran some super short, punchy interviews with some of the top modular synth companies.
Here's what GRP Synthesizer told us:
1. Why did you decide to create a modular synthesizer brand and when did it first happen?
The decision to go into the production of modular systems was born in response to the great demand nowadays for these products.
2. Name a song you would like to hear re-created using your modular system?
Thursday afternoon (Brian Eno).
3. Which module you've made took you the most effort or time to make and why?
The module that has required more effort than the others, both for the quantity of materials used and for the practical realization, has certainly been the FIXED FILTER. The density of the electronic components and the number of controls on the panel required many hours of work both for the design of the active filters and for the placement of the materials.
4. Tell us about a module made by another brand you are most excited about?
I am always very fascinated by all those modules from other brands where digital synthesis is used.
5. Would you be able to send us a cool one minute video demonstrating your modular system?
This one-minute clip is of the Grp A2 and Grp R24 connected together. At the moment I am not able to produce a EuroRack module because my system is off-site for review.
