The first edition of the Soundmit - International Sound Summit, the natural evolution of the Torino Synth Meeting, which has proved to be up to expectations, involving more than 180 industry operators, 800 visitors, over 100 workshop participants and a soldout for the talk held by the 3 sponsoring Universities, ended on Novembre 5th 2017.

FOREIGN VISITORS 16%

With over 90 brands on display and exhibitors from all over Europe and beyond, Soundmit is confirmed as the only Italian event highly specialized in electronic musical instruments. A fertile ground for the exchange of ideas and for the birth of new collaborations as well as new friendships.
Numerous foreign exhibitors with participation from Spain, Poland, Germany, Switzerland, and France.
The Soundmit has aroused great interest in the academic world for the high cultural content of the initiative, decisive the contribution of the Politecnico di Torino, the DAMS of the University of Turin and the University of Roma Tor Vergata that, thanks to the contribution of teachers Marco Masoero, Marco Re, Andrea Valle and Enzo De Sena, have packed a talk that has sold out with a strong presence (obviously) of students and future students interested in a course of study strongly linked to the entertainment world, the music industry and of course to electronic musical instruments.
As tradition inherited from the Synth Meeting, there were demos and workshops. We talked about Mastering (Gianni Vallino), Sound Synthesis with Pure Data (Giorgio Sancristoforo) and with VCV Rack (Enrico Cosimi), Arranging and Production with Steinberg (Franco Fraccastoro) and Sound Design (Gianni Proietti) with analysis of the sounds that made the history of music.
The companies then presented their instruments, we witnessed a curious and fascinating performance for Harps and Modular Synthesizers proposed by the company Salvi Harps world leader in the field of Harps, Moog and Arturia with Enrico Cosimi, Novation with Chris Calcutt, the new Roland production with Gianni Proietti and Marco Ribolini, the excellent modular mixers of the Swiss Schertler Group and there was no lack of software with the presentation of Franco Fraccastoro with the new versions of Steinberg's software: Cubase and Wavelab
Yamaha has set up a real television studio inside the exhibition space thus ensuring the streaming of the performances of the artists involved in the presentation and offering, at the same time, the possibility for the public to attend the excellent live show.
Nonostante fosse la prima volta che partecipassi al Soundmit come dimostratore, mi sono sentito subito a casa. E’ molto più di una semplice fiera, si incontrano appassionati, professionisti del settore, si scambiano idee e si possono instaurare rapporti artistici e professionali con estrema facilità grazie alla passione che ci accomuna tutti: la musica e gli strumenti. Personalmente trovo che manifestazioni come questa rappresentino una risorsa indispensabile per un sano scambio culturale e per lo sviluppo commerciale. Lunga vita al Soundmit!
For me Soundmit is an awesome Synth event consisting of a very engaged and kind community.
Soundmit is a Great place to test new as well as legendary gear. The synth selection was amazing and I had a great time playing around with the gear during the show. I think that if you are a studio gear/synth geek form somewhere around and maybe not so close even too, it’s a good place to visit for sure.
Soundmit is a very friendly music/sound event in a very friendly country, as for me, i got one the best experience and excellent mood during it and long after.
Soundmit is a evolved music gear exhibition from “Synth Meeting”. Since previous event, this is very relaxed and has warm atmosphere. However, the biggest advantage of this to any other exhibition is the catering food service. After Soundmit, I became a little bit depressed about other music and audio gear exhibition because of the foods (Specially NAMM!!!!).
