Superbooth 2021: the very best synths, drum machines, modular equipment and out-there oddities

Superbooth 2021 was usually likely to be a tiny little bit distinctive. To place it mildly, some points have occurred in the world due to the fact we past decamped to Berlin’s FEZ centre in 2019, meaning a compelled fallow year for Europe’s most influential synth meeting. In actuality, for us Superbooth 2021 marked not just a return to Berlin, but our very first in-particular person function in virtually two many years.

Even by the usual enterprise-meeting-satisfies-unlawful-rave expectations of Superbooth, 2021’s celebration experienced a notably ‘chill’ vibe. Unsurprisingly, there were being a little bit fewer exhibitors and attendees than we’ve observed in past several years, and people that have been in attendance have been substantially a lot more spread out. The typical cluster of booths crammed into the FEZ’s restricted hallways and classroom-like areas experienced this year spilled out into the outdoor spots, occupying room in the woods and – in Moog’s situation – a circus tent.
