Anyone with an ear for gear and at least one Brian Eno record knows that Switched On Electronics is the best synthesizer store in Austin and possibly the universe. John French and Chad Allen's emporium of electronic music tools boasts a mouthwatering stock of synths, samplers, drum machines, effects modules, amplifiers, and other gadgetry that makes Switched On a Mecca for electro and experimental composers. The recently relocated business also has a world-class repair shop that employs five specialized techies who were trusted to tune up the University of Texas' priceless Wavemaker.
