I retired from my day-job as a test systems design engineer in April 2020 with the view to spending more time on my part-time business/hobby Synovatron. However due to a number of factors (mainly age, health, fitness and to a lesser extent COVID-19 restrictions and Brexit) I have reluctantly decided to call it a day on Synovatron and retire completely.
From 1st February 2021 Synovatron Limited will cease to trade and will not be taking any new orders from then. I will, however, retain spares and test equipment in order to provide support and warranty cover for any Synovatron products sold directly by me or by retailers during 2020, 2021.
The Synovatron logo is a representation of me and my wife (the two birds) flying off into the sunset so I guess I always realised this point would come, I wish that I had the fitness for it to have been further away, but that's life. So long and thanks for the interest, I really enjoyed making stuff that people use for creative sound exploration. I will be refurbishing my house, spending precious time with my family and actually playing my own synths (for once). Keep safe you lovely people.
NOTE: Some products (e.g. CVGT1, Euro Bananas, Jacks) may find their way to various retailers and some may even be continued by other parties (and possibly rebranded) yet to be confirmed. Watch this space - I will post any news if anyone does take up continued production.
