SYNTHESIS TECHNOLOGY IS NO LONGER MANUFACTURING EURO MODULES
We have ceased production of our line of Euro modules. There still may be a few modules remaining at dealers. Check Perfect Circuit, Patchwerks, Analogue Haven, Signal Sounds, and Schneidersladen.
Synthesis Technology has authorized Field Services in Phoenix, AZ USA to be our repair service.
IMPORTANT: REPAIRS ARE NO LONGER COVERED UNDER A WARRANTY. PLEASE CONTACT FIELD SERVICES FOR ANY REPAIR NEEDS.
Field Servies is run by Matthew Averill, who at one time assembled modules for us when we were located in Arizona (2011-2015). His company repairs 100s of MI gear each year.
Here is an introduction:
I started my audio electronics career at a music store in Massachusetts before moving to Phoenix, 24 years ago. I started to do repairs full time here at Field Services (founded 1989 by Jim Field) in 1999 and took ownership of the shop in 2018.
We're authorized service for major brands (Harman Professional, Yamaha, Yamaha Guitar Group, Roland, Korg, Fender, and QSC, to name a few).
As far as modular synthesis goes, this is where the hobby/career are married. I've been working on the never-ending project that is my own modular since 2001.
We're proud to be supporting Synthesis Technology users going forward into the future.

Open Source Release - E951 Circuit Bent VCO Expander
We have released the source files (in C, targeted to a specific ST ARM chip), front panel drawings, schematics, and Gerber files,
This documentation is released under the following conditions
- NO TECHNICAL SUPPORT. This is NOT a DIY kit.
- The point of the exercise is to have people figure it out, and then SHARE your efforts.
- The original display used was some random OLED off eBay. Let's just say it is not what I would use today. HINT
There is NO REASON to 100% clone the mechanicals of this module. I did it based on what was available at the time. Port it to Arduino? Sure! FPGA? FINE! Better display? PLEASE I BEG YOU.Get your files from Eric's GitHub by clicking here
