A few years ago, Robert Dorschel had the inspired idea of making electronic instruments available to all comers in a “synth petting zoo”. It has been a hugely popular feature at NEEMFest, and one we knew we’d miss if we did not have an in-person festival this year.

But, as it turns out…. there are plenty of synths to play around with and learn from online. They range from simple, straightforward stuff for beginners to simulations of classic instruments like the Juno-106 to stuff that is just way, way out there… for example, our favorite, OMNI.

Have fun with these!
