Soundmit 2017 Update - Final Details on Event Are In

The final details on Soundmit 2017 are in. Soundmit is the evolution of the Torino Synth Meeting, the largest synth event in Italy. The following are some details on the scope of the event:


The first edition of the Soundmit - International Sound Summit, the natural evolution of the Torino Synth Meeting, which has proved to be up to expectations, involving more than 180 industry operators, 800 visitors, over 100 workshop participants and a soldout for the talk held by the 3 sponsoring Universities, ended on Novembre 5th 2017.


With more than 90 Brands exposed and exhibitors from all over Europe and not only, we had the presence of Nori Ubukata from Japan and Keen Association from Moscow, Soundmit is confirmed as the only Italian event highly specialized in electronic music instruments. Fertile land for exchanging ideas and for the birth of new partnerships as well as new friendships.

In addition to the world-renowned music production names (Roland, Yamaha, Moog, Steinberg, Arturia, Electron, Novation, Access), we had the pleasure of hosting enterprising distributors, makers and innovative builders. Special mention for Xirid with their sequencer that captured the scene during the three days, Pcna with the didactic kits to learn the fun synthesis and Faselunare with a mysterious prototype of midi matrix. Numerous foreign exhibitors with participation from Spain, Poland, Germany, Switzerland and France.



The Soundmit has seen the participation of an attentive and involved audience, statistics inform us of highly prepared visitors on the subject in the requests to producers and distributors, coming mostly from Italy and with an average age of between 25 and 45 years old.



The Soundmit has attracted great interest in the academic world for the high cultural content of the initiative, decisive for the contribution of the Politecnico di Torino, the DAMS of the University of Turin and the University of Rome Tor Vergata that, thanks to the contribution of professors Marco Masoero, Marco Re, Andrea Valle and Enzo De Sena, have held a talk that has been sold out with a strong (obviously) presence of students and future students interested in a course of study strongly linked to the world of entertainment, the music industry and of course electronic music instruments.


A great support came then from the Municipality of Turin, which supported us through the Giovani per Torino project, thanks to which we had 11 beautiful volunteers at an age of 23 to 30 years. Thanks to their contribution, we have been able to offer a rich and well-managed event.


In this first edition of Soundmit we also had the pleasure of being a technical partner at Club To Club. The largest Italian electronic music festival has chosen us to make a room at its headquarters on #ABSOLUTSYMPOSIUM. With musical instruments provided by Roland, we have made a small studio with all the novelties of the Japanese brand made available to the audience who could thus participate in an extrovert Jam Session throughout the festival.


As tradition inherited from the Torino Synth Meeting, there have been demos and workshops. We talked about Mastering (Gianni Vallino), Sound Synthesis with Pure Data(Giorgio Sancristoforo) and VCV Rack (Enrico Cosimi), Arrangement and Production with Steinberg (Franco Fraccastoro) and Sound Design (Gianni Proietti).

The companies then presented their instruments, we witnessed a curious and fascinating performance for Harps and Modular Synthesizers offered by Salvi Harps the leader in the Harps sector, the demo of Moog and Arturia instruments with Enrico Cosimi, Novation with Chris Calcutt, the new Roland production with Gianni Proietti and Marco Ribolini, the excellent mixers of the Swiss Schertler Group and the software with the presentation of Franco Fraccastoro of the new versions of the German software house Steinberg: Cubase and Wavelab.

Winning the solution adopted by Yamaha that has set up a real television studio within the exhibition space, thus guaranteeing the streaming of the performances of the artists involved in the presentation and at the same time offering the public the chance to watch live performances."
