Meet the team!

Martin Warr - Synthax Audio UK


Martin Warr – Managing Director

After studying Music Technology at the University of York, Martin went on to specify mixing consoles at Soundcraft, before joining Mackie in the late 90’s. After time spent as their technical sales man (which involved a lot of hanging out in studios drinking coffee), he eventually took the reigns as Head of the UK with responsibility for Mackie, EAW, RCF, Ampeg and others.

He bought Synthax Audio UK in 2007 and has since worked to build a portfolio of quality products, along with an excellent team to sell, support and market them. In his spare time, Martin sings a bit of Bach, plays the piano, and also the ‘cello in a string quartet, while listening to 90’s dance music for light relief.


Luke Brennan - Synthax Audio UK
Luke Brennan –
Operations Manager

Luke has been an integral member of the Synthax team for a number of years, gaining a wealth of knowledge in operations and office management, before moving into his current role as Operations Manager.

In his spare time, he can be found in either a pub, at a football match, or at a gig – preferably in Manchester.

Luke is the proud father of one – French Bulldog Frank!


Anna Warren - Synthax Audio UK
Anna Warren – Accounts

Anna had a financial background right from leaving school, working in a bank and building society, then after exams, going to work within the finance dept of a large organisation for five years.

To gain further knowledge and experience, she decided to leave and set up her own private practice. After gaining her AAT qualifications, she has been successfully freelancing for over 27 years, both within practice and for various businesses like Synthax.

Anna enjoys watching Rugby, especially the recent World Cup matches, Ceroc dancing and cooking.


Bas Free - Synthax Audio UK
Sebastian (Bas) Free – Marketing Manager

Having studied for a BTEC in music technology, he spent the next few years working at various dead-end jobs while spending all of his free time writing electronic music and DJ’ing at house parties. Upon reading of an opening at Synthax Audio UK, he jumped at the chance to join the team in order to be around what he loves on a daily basis.

A lover of all forms of dark and weird electronic music, he continues to expand his vinyl collection along with updating his home studio with an ever-growing list of the latest toys (like guitars, you can never have too many synths!).

Just don’t ask him to play anything that’s ever been in the top 40.
