Liivatera – set up by Phil Macphail – offers a different perspective on the modular synthesiser concept. The products are influenced by the combination of a history in high-volume product design and a long-term interest in electronic musical instruments. The general objective is to provide a simple interface, while offering maximum versatility – accessible with hidden depths.

This approach results in compact designs that are ‘skiff friendly’ without loosing functionality, and will reward beginners and experienced users alike. The modules are extensively tested by gigging musicians to to validate the company objectives before they are released to ensure that they are reliable, useful and easy to use.
