About the Synth Geekery Show
Synth Geekery is a weekly podcast/live stream (YouTube) show about everything synthesizers, drum machines, samplers, sequencers, eurorack and music technology. We take the “one of the masses” viewpoint, where we are also users of gear just like you (read: we’re not influenced by commercial product placement).
The show relies on the generous contributions of the synth community. You can contribute in many ways including supporting us via our YouTube Channel Membership or Patreon. We also have regular and special video guests: if you would like to take part in future shows – please contact me via email on the about page here.
This week’s video guests are:
Daren T. Housse

Daren resides in the UK and is one of the first video guests on the show since 2019. He has a large amount of tracks on his youtube channel plus a great album collection over on BandCamp.
Andy is a musician and technologist from the bay area in California. He has an amazing collection of music tech gadgets and a large knowledge of synthesizers.
Ian J. Cole
Ian is a musician, composer, sound designer and producer currently producing solo ambient electronic music. He also runs Sinners Music which is a Record Company and Online Music Retailer in East Yorkshire, England

News from the Geekery
This week we have a big list of new synths and gear:
For those who are after that authentic retro digital synth sound.
Price: $2499 USD
Black Corporation Inenin
Looks good – a Eurorack voice for a Jupiter 8 sound. However, I feel it is missing connectivity for CV. It could do with similar to what they did with Deckard’s Voice – as seen below:
Price: TBA (est $699)
Akai Pro – Force 3.2 Firmware Update
Brings you all the cool new features they recently put into the MPC hardware into your Force. If not anything else, the update does allow for the track re-ordering, a much needed change.
This week – we visited a number of auctions, here are the screen grabs:
Ever thought about getting a vintage Roland System-100m synthesizer? Well – this is just for one module:
This week’s Saturday Sonority we were talking about synths! 182 Sequencer from Roland System-100m is a sensible relation to the show’s episode number!
Stay subscribed for episode 185 (3 episodes away) – there’s going to be some cool things related to this!
We also tried out the MI Marbles (for the first time) – lots to learn, so much fun to have!
