Mr Mews ,

An awesome podcast about niche synthesizers

Synthesizers are not for everyone, but this is an amazing podcast about synthesizers that is for everyone. It focuses on Teenage Engineering products which range from introductory (pocket operators) to expensive (OP-1/OP-Z). The host does a great job of collecting new, diverse music that explore all sorts of genres made with these instruments. The interviews with prominent musicians are fantastic and they have great tips on how to stoke the flames of creativity. Caution: everything on this podcast may inspire you to make music.

Concise, elegant, and explorative

Fire music leads you may not hear otherwise...

UphillRider ,

Primo!

Have been listening now on Episode 5. Nice and tight show professional sounding for a new show. I listen to Fretboard Journal which I feel is one of the best and you are right up there! Hope to hear some more of the DIY side of the TE world. All the music on the show is Primo!
