'Wiard was founded in 1999 by Grant Richter as Wiard Synthesizer Company. The recently reintroduced 6U 300 Series modules are highly sought after, now manufactured by the new owner of the brand (as of 5 May 2010), Wessex Analogue, in England. Wiard 300 Series modules are available with Bantam (TT) or 3.5mm jacks.

The now discontinued 1200 Series modules are based on the 3U Frac system. They require +/- 15v power and are calibrated 1v/octave. Connections are 1/8" mini-jacks. Some of the 1200 modules include a joystick.[1]

Currently, older Wiard designs are being reissued and new ones are being introduced in Eurorack format by Malekko.

Several Wiard designs have been licensed for production by other manufacturers.

Additionally, the Wogglebug #3 design has been left available to the public by Wiard, and heavily embraced by the Synth DIY community.
