I am the chief innovation officer there and after some thinking I proposed this new adventure to my partners, that accepted the challenge!
soundmachines is coming to the market with a dense product roadmap, including eurorack modules, performance devices and full-fledged synthesizers. We will start the sales of modules in October/November and then expand the line in 2013. Some 15 modules are already on the map.
As of today there is already a development team at soundmachines. We have a main designer (Davide, me), a Project Manager (Samuele), firmware engineers (Samuele and Mirko), a software architect (Luca), a webmaster (Andrea), hardware designers (Francesco, Enrico, Marco, Pablo) and all the people that takes care of production: Roberta, Carlotta and many more…
Everything is made in Italy, with love.
