Feed your pedals with synths! how about synth + pedals?
In the previous edition of the Soundmit (Soundmit 2018) we introduced two manufacturers of guitar pedals and effects, a small Turin boutique, ZIRANTE, and a big name in the sector EVENTIDE.
We know well that the world of synthesists makes extensive use of external effects to expand the sound palette and more and more social and video channels that deal with the topic Synth & Pedals are springing up, but the success obtained by these two brands during the event has gone beyond our expectations.
At the end of the event, the feedback received from the public and from the companies prompted us to consider the possibility of expanding the event and opening it in an organized way also to the effects and pedal's manufacturers.
Studying the market we got to meet Bart Provoost, from Belgium, founder in 2003 of the Effects Database website, the largest archive on the web with a catalog of +4000 manufacturers and over 26,000 pedals !! We talked to Bart about the Soundmit and about our intention and immediately became enthusiastic about the idea of a partnership.
The rest, he says, is history!
A welcome then to all the fans and makers of pedals and effects who will come to find us on November 2nd and 3rd at the Soundmit 2019 in Turin!
