Oh wow. RIP! Great little docos on him here and here. Fascinating guy that made a lot of incredible equipment. Another great vid of him with the SYNTRX here.

On a personal note, spending a semester with the Synthi at VUW was probably the most fun I’ve ever had in the studio. It’s such a fantastic instrument and one of the few pieces of gear I’ve played that has the kind of subtleties that really make it feel like an ‘instrument’. Love that machine and huge respect to it’s creator :heart:
