Play-a-Synth is a new crowdsourced website which lets you test synths out before you buy them. Doesn’t even matter if they’re in another country, you can still give them a whirl.
There’s always a big risk involved in buying a new hardware synth. All the pre-release videos or patch demos in the world can’t replace the feeling of playing a synth for yourself, which is the gap this tool aims to bridge.
Ever wanted to test synths out before you buy them? Play-a-Synth wants to let you, but they need your help first.
The site is currently in a beta testing phase, so you can expect a few glitches and crashes here and there, not to mention some downtime. This also means the user base is still quite small, so if you’re a synth owner… jump on board.
Personally, the thought of being able to play a Minilogue in Finland with my MIDI keyboard is too damn exciting for words. Can’t wait to see where this one will go.
