World of ROMplers

Sample-based Synthesizers

Who Am I?

Doctor Synth has been helping people fix their vintage ROMplers since 2001. If you change your battery and lose your sounds, contact Doctor Synth.



What are ROMplers?

ROMplers are synthesizers which use sampled waveforms as the basis for sound creation, rather than generating waveforms on the fly. They are the most popular form of synthesizer, as they are able to reproduce the sound of traditional instruments as well as make otherworldly sounds that may have never been heard before.


Where can I buy ROMplers?

ROMplers are available at almost all musical instrument retailers, and on sites like Craigslist and Ebay.
