Founder: Rocky Mountain Synthesizer Meetup


The Rocky Mountain Synthesizer Meetup which I founded in 2012 is the home of 840+ Denver & Boulder Front Range synth synthesists. I have hosted over 75+ free events.

Synth enthusiasts of all levels meet to share there passion for synths, network, learn and get inspired, get hands-on with gear, tell people about projects, and find collaborators. It is synth technology agnostic and features broad variety of rotating presentation topics and experiences each meetup – most presentations given by members themselves. Many meetups feature a performance by a meetup member.

Each meetup typically features a presentation selected from a broad variety of topics ranging from reviews of new synths, overviews of synth technology, how-to lectures on synthesis and performance technique, and fun community events like Synth Petting Zoos, and Modular Synth Lightning Patch Walk-throughs. This is followed by socializing and often a performance by a meetup member.

Meetup Reviews

 Very positive experience, very interesting mix of people, I try to go as often as my location and schedule allows. 

 Great vibe and you can meet a lot of awesome musicians and creative people here. Seems like there’s something for everybody here. Check it out! 

 I really like this group and what it represents for supporting the artist community. I’m looking forward to meeting more of you at the next event.

History

The meetup, which started as the “Boulder Synthesizer Meetup”,  has grown to over 840+ members all across the front-range. This necessitated a name change and we are now the Rocky Mountain Synthesizer Meetup (RockyMountainSynth.com). Typical attendance is usually between 35-60+ people depending on the time of year, weather, and the theme.

Our biggest Event was over 110 people when Ableton chose our meetup as the launch-point in Denver for Live 9.5 and Push 2.

Our members come from diverse backgrounds and interests and include synthesists, musicians (pro & hobbyists), educators, industry folks, producers, performers, engineers…
