About us

We are an established supplier of professional audio equipment, with a fresh approach.

As a value added pro audio supplier we represent only quality brands, and we always enjoy talking to customers about the wide variety of products we have on offer.

Within the team we have wide-ranging experience with many styles of music and audio; in applications of technology; and in system design. In music, from electronic to classical, thrash metal to funk, guitar bands and pop to jazz, we have dealt with them all. See our News pages / User filter for examples.

In technical applications, we’ve provided equipment to science labs, the automotive industry and even oil exploration to monitor whale migration routes.

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.


Rob Masters - Synthax Audio UK


Rob Masters – Product Manager

Having completed a master’s degree in Mathematics and Physics at the University of Warwick, Rob became the first member of the new Synthax team, back in 2007. Since then he has been involved in many areas of the business, developing an in-depth knowledge of our products and specialising in system design.

When not wrapping his head around the workings of a variety of audio equipment or driving spread sheets, Rob can usually be found collecting mud on his bike, rock climbing, noodling with his guitar or following the ups and downs of Watford FC.


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 practise. 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.
