MIDI Specialist Kenton – who are they?

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

Kenton was founded in 1986 by UK musician John Price, who began by building a more cost-effective and well- specified MIDI interface for his beloved Oberheim OBX programmable analogue polysynth than was otherwise available; word soon got around, and today the company designs and manufactures a wide range of far-reaching MIDI solutions for famous and not-so-famous clients alike around the globe from its South West London-based HQ:“People often ask where the name Kenton came from; my father,Wylie Price, was a bandleader in the Forties and Fifties, and was a big fan of Stan Kenton, so, when I was born, I was given Kenton as my middle name.”
