MATRIXSYNTH Posting Guidelines

All posts on MATRIXSYNTH go up manually by hand, seven days a week. Running the site is fun, but does take up a considerable amount of work and time. To keep the site manageable for both me and you, readers of MATRIXSYNTH, there are some guidelines.

Posts need to feature clearly identifiable synths, pics, and news. If you can't ID the synth/s, or it doesn't showcase the synths being used, it doesn't go up. Posts are meant to give you an idea of the capabilities of the featured synths/s - the focus is on the gear, then the music.

Only rare auction items get posts, however, if you are a supporting member of the site, you are free to send in both your auction items and your music.

Anyone can also list items on MATRIXSYNTH CLASSIFIEDS for free. Synths posted there will get a post here. Yes, you can mention your items are for sale elsewhere there as well.

If you are business or individual submitting a post for profit, please consider becoming a supporting member of the site or a banner sponsor. For banner rates send email to

Please note posts do need to stand on their own. For example do not request posts for reviews on other sites, FB groups, or forums. There are some exceptions, for example a demo video with a link to your site for more info.

To submit a post or if you have any questions, send email to


MATRIXSYNTH is a daily glimpse into the world of synthesizers with the focus on specific, identifiable gear. The current format of the site launched in 2005. Prior to MATRIXSYNTH, our only glimpse into the world of synthesizers was through print magazines and a handful of online sites much in the same vein as print magazines. Their focus was primarily on press releases and professional musicians. MATRIXSYNTH was the first site to showcase synthesizers through the eyes and hearts of everyday users of synths, and the first to prominently showcase boutique manufacturers and makers of the gear we love.
