|Syntaur was created in 1988 as a third-party developer of sounds
for Ensoniq keyboards. The company quickly gained a reputation for expert
programming and top-notch customer service, and soon became the world's
largest source of sounds and accessories for Ensoniq keyboards. Through
exclusive licensing arrangements with Ensoniq, Syntaur has kept the factory
sound libraries for long-discontinued keyboards available. In fact, we have
in stock virtually every library that Ensoniq has created - back to the very
first Mirage disks. And all of our sound disks carry a lifetime guarantee -
we'll replace a floppy disk four years from now, even if your dog chews it.
In addition to our own products, we have been contracted by both Ensoniq and Korg to develop many of the on-board factory sounds when they have created new keyboards. You've heard our sounds in the:
An integral part of our sound design business is our 24-track digital HumBug Recording Studio, which is also available for outside projects.
Our Green Committment - We believe that recycling is the second best option; instead, we re-use whatever we can. You may find your package arriving in a box that is being re-used, and packed with bubble-wrap or styrofoam peanuts that are re-used. The plastic bag that wraps your new keyboard part may once have wrapped a Barbie or a pair of slippers. The in-house paperwork for your order is printed on paper which has no-telling-what printed on the reverse side. In short, if we can re-use it, we do. If we can't, we recycle it. We're also working on adding solar power to run at least some of our operation, and the hot water in our building comes from a passive solar heater that we designed and built - it requires no electricity or gas at all!
