Yamaha are celebrating 45 years in the synthesizer business, starting 1974 when they first released the SY-1. This weekend will see them running a 24 hour streaming event from their HQ in Hamamatsu, Japan.
The event will be streaming artist performances and interviews as well as Yamaha product demonstrations.
The exciting news is that we'll also be there, filming some of our own content and taking a tour around their legendary technology museum, as well as speaking to some of their top engineers. We can't wait!
You can follow our trip on our Facebook and Instagram feeds.
The live event will stream via Facebook
The broadcast will take place in three seven-hour blocks contained within a 24-hour period. Each block will be streamed from Japan for one of three major international stages:
Lemur and touch
Paulee and the tiny Zen Core synth
Engine enhancements, MS-20 filter and more
Analogue, digital and DSP voices
