Synth Library NYC is a lending library of synthesizers, recording equipment, modular gear and other electronic musical instruments. We are a membership organization committed to community and education, and increasing access to music technology, especially to those who may be under-represented in these fields/who may not otherwise be able to afford.  Membership is free and members have access to borrow instruments to take home for four weeks.    

We are open to all with priority access to those who have been traditionally marginalized from the fields of music production, and/or have faced long-standing economic and opportunity inequalities: including BIPOC and individuals of all marginalized genders (including but not limited to trans women, cis women, trans men, non-binary, intersex, gender nonconforming, two-spirit and questioning folx.)  

We owe special thanks to the founders of Fem Synth Library in LA who have consulted with us along the way and POWRPLNT, a network of Brooklyn artists dedicated to providing equal access to digital arts education, and our 501c3 fiscal sponsor. 

We are currently seeking partners - either in the form of donations of electronic instruments, help with service repairs, providing virtual tutorials on how to use gear, or any other ideas you might have!  Please reach out if you would like to get involved (email below).

If you have the means, we are also accepting financial donations (click here to donate!) which helps us purchase synths, cables, cases and other program supplies.  We are fiscally sponsored by POWRPLNT, a non-profit 501c3 organization and can provide a tax receipt.

Synth Library is currently stewarded by Cy X and Heidi Sabertooth and our 350+ members and counting.


Our library has grown primarily via donations from our community and our favorite electronic music companies. You can also donate via our donation form.
