Synth and Software Editor Geary Yelton Announces Retirement



Synth and Software continues…but we’d like to thank Geary for his vision and experience – thanks, Geary!

Geary Yelton: I’m announcing my retirement, effective on September 4, just after the publication of Synth and Software’s September issue. Despite excellent health, lately I’ve been taking stock and coming to grips with the brevity of life and the accelerating passage of time. After a long career in music and publishing, one of my life’s ambitions was to launch a magazine that would continue beyond my own efforts. Now that I’ve accomplished that, I’d rather spend the next few years making music, learning, reading for pleasure, camping, riding my bike, and when it’s safe again, traveling more and exploring the world around me.

I want to express my appreciation not only to Synth and Software’s contributors and subscribers, but also to my partners in this venture: Joe Perry, Valery Amador, and Raul Amador. They’ve been carrying much of the load behind the scenes, and they will continue to do so. Synth and Software will live on, and I wish Joe, Valery, and Raul great success in its future.

Again, everyone on our team would like to thank Geary for his vision, experience, leadership, and dedication in creating Synth and Software! We plan to continue with much of his vision in mind.


We are actively evaluating a replacement for Geary, with several exceptional people in the running. If you or someone you know would like to be considered, please click here to let us know.

A look back over the years…
