MEFF Modular Synthesizer Exhibition
Come and try our last news of the Eurorack world at MEFF Modular synthesizer Exhibition in Florence.
The access to the event will be #FREE for Visitors.
Tiptop Audio and Lattex Plus in collaboration with BUH Circolo culturale urbano & IED Firenze are joining together to host a modular synthesizer event in the heart of Italy, featuring the artistically vibrant city of Florence. This event is open to all manufactures of Modular Synthesizers and electronic music technology entrepreneurs.
This is a two-day event at March 24-25th 2018 which will take place at theImpact Hub Florence.
Impact HUB Florence has chosen to requalify the 1000 sq.m. building, once owned by the Italian Customs, and where initially there were warehouse to storage goods, close to the railway station of Firenze Rifredi.
Exhibitor Space: Impact Hub Florence has a dual spirit: during the day it is a coworking space for hundreds of professionals who use workstations and offices; during the weekend it becomes BUH Circolo culturale urbano, with a rich time-table of concerts, book presentations, debates, dinners, and DJ sets. With its spaces, Impact Hub Florence becomes the perfect venue for events, parties, conventions, meetings, courses, exhibitions, press conferences, workshops and team building/networking available to companies, associations, private and public entities.
Performance Space: This space was designed by Architect Donato Masci through the installation of acoustic treatments in order to make best sound performances.
Every brand is welcome to manage mini live sets and/or presentations by performing the sounds of their systems in BUH’s main room.
Please, contact us if you would like to be included in this area’s program. No extra fees will be required for this area.

Modular synthesis in Eurorack format changes the world of music production.
Davide Ricci from KillingToys Roma
May, 5 2017 – 10:30 am – Tor Vergata University – Rome
Sound design, composition and live music have undergone a radical change thanks to the return of modular synthesis and the use of eurorack synthesizers, which we find today in most production studios.
Appeared in Italy for some years now with revisions of old systems (eg Buchla, Moog) today bring the musician to enter into symbiosis with the synthesizer himself by letting it be carried by infinite sound possibilities.
Together we will discover:
- The evolution of eurorack systems
- How to assemble an eurorack synthesizer
- The components of an analog synthesizer
- The path of the audio signal
- Testing and listening to some eurorack modules
The last part of the seminar on modular synthesizers will allow you to touch the synths brought to the event with your hand.

Killing Toys Roma and Fonderie Sonore present a series of appointments dedicated to the world of analog and modular synthesizers of eurorack format.
The Eurorack systems, which have been in Italy for some years now with revisions of the old systems (eg Buchla, Moog), today bring the musician into symbiosis with the synthesizer himself, leaving him with infinite sound possibilities.
3:00 pm – Fonderie Sonore – Roma
SEQUENCER is one of the most important elements of the modular system, choosing the right one according to your needs can be difficult because of the many brands availables.
