James Husted is the designer at Synthwerks. He studied fine art and drafting at Western Washington University. There he managed the synthesizer studio, which had an Arp 2500, and taught the hardware aspects. For about 25 years and for over 60 products he was the graphics department at Symetrix. There he was involved in every aspect of manufacturing from PCB etching and drilling, screen printing, panels, assembly and stock control. He then was the graphic designer at [ Digital Harmony Technologies].[1]

His first synth was a EMS VCS3 in 1974. Later he modified a few Oberheim SEM based systems. His explorations were slowed down by the trend towards single keyboard units and the move to digital, until he found out about Eurorack modular synths and decided to start his own business making synthesizer modules.[1]
