A synth studio and store tour of Switched-On in Austin, Texas -- including the Switched On synthesizer showroom, walk-through of the Switched On synth store and brief highlight of the synthesizer repair area.

During a trip to Austin in early 2020 I had a chance to revisit the Switched On synth shop I first toured in 2018 [video bellow]. Switched On have since moved from their original location to a new spot and are under new ownership, so it was a great opportunity to see the new synth store.

This synth studio and store walkthrough showcases Switched On's extensive record collection, tape machines, various synthesizers, modular gear, classic vintage synths, rack units and more. To learn more about Switched On, visit https://www.switchedonaustin.com

SWITCHED ON AUSTIN - Synth studio, office tour & synthesizer reviews


An in-depth synth studio and office tour of Switched-On in Austin, Texas -- including the Switched On synthesizer showroom, synth repair room and walk-through of the Switched On store.

Join me on this journey into Switched On Austin's storefront location, alongside Switched On's own Chad Allen. Chad was kind enough to provide me with a synthesizer studio and SwitchedOn office tour, and gives great commentary on the various analog and digital synthesizers available at Switched On Austin.
