KNOBCON HIGHLIGHTS

Synthesizers, Workshops, Synthesizers, Performances and more Synthesizers!


Friday night is a party!

Hang out with other knobcon attendees, have a drink and catch gear-centric performances.


Gear, Gear, Gear!

Get your hands on amazing vintage pieces and the latest and greatest boxes. Monosynths, polysynths, modular and more will all be there.


Meet The Makers

Many boutique manufacturers will be on hand demonstrating and even selling the gear they produce.   

Marketplace

Part synth meet, part swap meet, part marketplace.
Knobcon is a great opportunity to get your hands on incredible instruments, and in some cases, purchase them on the spot! If you pay the table fee, you're free to sell/trade all the gear you want. Nearly all formats will be represented, from traditional synths and samplers to Circuit Bent, DIY & Homebrew noisemakers. And, of course, modular. Below are some highlights of what you can expect to see at Knobcon on Saturday.

Feedback from previous Knobcons

As expected, a spectacular event

Learned a lot, laughed a ton, listened to good music, met great people and bought too much new gear. I have no complaints at all!

 

The whole thing was extremely enjoyable

I made more friends last weekend than I have in years that are in to the same stuff as me. Cheers to everyone involved in planning it!

 

Had a great time!

Even though I did not know anyone there, I was made to feel welcome and part of the gang.

 

Thanks for the awesome time everyone!

I saw tons of amazing things for the first time and met tons of cool people, not a bad one in the bunch!

 

Had a great time!

Learned a lot about modular synths and other gear. Enjoyed the "low-key" relaxed environment and the Knobcon staffers were helpful and very professional. Hope to make it back next year.

 

Knobcon was amazing!

Loved getting to try out the new and old gear. Everyone there was super cool, and I will definitely be back next year.
