Every January, the music tech world travels to Anaheim, California to show off the new music gear we’ll be using in the year to come at the annual NAMM show. Ahead of FACT’s coverage of the 2017 event, Scott Wilson sifts through the rumors and announcements to detail what we can expect to see from the world’s biggest and brightest music gear companies.
Whether you’re the kind of musician that wants a cheap drum machine for home use, a synthesizer workstation for a professional studio or a new module for your Eurorack system, you’re going to want to wait until the annual annual NAMM show show in California next week before making any new purchases. Over the past few years, advances in music technology have made the hardware announced at the trade show both more ambitious and more affordable, giving us reissues of beloved classics and innovative new instruments.
It’s hard to say for sure what new products will be on show, but we do know that most of the big companies including Roland, Korg, Yamaha and Moog will be showing off recent and forthcoming gear alongside boutique companies such as Teenage Engineering, touch control specialist ROLI and cult modular experts Make Noise. If you like synths, you’re probably not going to be short of new toys to get excited about.
