Matrix Synth

Matrixsynth is a website/blog dedicated to anything and everything about synths.

Matrix, who runs the site, is active on many synth-related lists and forums, and when he sees something of interest, he posts it on Matrixsynth. As a result, the site covers everything synth, from the serious to the humorous; the trivial to the items that wow us.

When asked why he put the site up he stated, “I previously created http://matrixsynth.com/old back in October 97 as my personal portal into the world of synths. The site was just a bunch of links to all of the sites I used to go to – basically my favorite lists. Over time I found that the number of items to keep track of was just too much and a lot of the interesting bits to me were hard to find. I’d have to try and remember where I found the item of interest, and a lot of the time, these items where lost forever. A classic example are ebay auctions with rare photos and bits of information on synths. Once the auction expires, that info is basically lost. So, I decided to start tracking this stuff with a blog. If see something interesting, I put up a post so I can find it later.”

“What’s interesting is that every now and then I’ll put something up that I second guess and it actually ends up getting more traction in the comments than something I thought might get more. I’ve had people thank me for putting up a post on a show or synth gathering that they might have otherwise missed. There’s also lot’s of synth shots with Cats out there for whatever reason!” : ) Take a look yourself and see if you find something you like. And as the site is a blog, it supports RSS out of the box, so feel free to subscribe with your favorite reader and see what trickles in.”
