Tom is the progenitor of the American polyphonic analogue synthesiser and designer of electronic music devices ranging from the Maestro Phase Shifter to the Oberheim DX drum machine. If you have listened to the radio in the past 40 years, it is impossible for you not to have heard sounds he had a hand in.
Join us at the Golden Knob Banquet to hear Tom's Keynote Address, or catch the Live Q&A Session (schedule tbd).
