As the most iconic synthesizer company from New England, ARP has a storied history of making music in the Northeast. The ARP Foundation, led by Dina Pearlman (daughter of Alan R. Pearlman), strives to give students access to legendary ARP synthesizers. We achieve this through events, installations, and programs such as “ARPs For All”, a collaboration between the Foundation and Boston’s own The Record Co. Our next “Synthposium” event, celebrating 50 years of the ARP Odyssey, goes live on November 5th with an impressive collection of performances, interviews, and more.


Circuit Happy was founded in 2017 by Ed Guild to find ways to make connecting musical systems more effortless. First he released The Missing Link Desktop: a clock generator with Ableton Link integration, packaged up in a shiny little desktop box. After many requests, Circuit Happy released a Eurorack version, ML:2. With these two devices, drum machines, modular synthesizers, iOS music apps, and desktop music programs can all be synched together over a local WiFi network. You can spend less time figuring out how to sync everything and get jamming faster!
