Welcome to the Synth Lending Library!


How do I check out a synth?

  1. Sign up for an orientation
  2. Become a member on WithFriends
  3. Create a MyTurn account and reserve that synth!

Check-in / check-out is in our new physical location inside Lloyd Center, unit 1256 on the second floor (click for Google Maps Directions). No need to call us; details for picking up and dropping off gear are provided in check-out emails.

When can I reserve a synth?

Priority window reservations are on Sundays and Mondays, then reservations open to all are Tuesdays through Thursdays until midnight.  You can check out up to two synths per lending period.

What synths are available to check out?

We currently are lending a variety of modern semi-modular synths, portable keyboards and small Eurorack skiffs.  You can see it all under the Inventory button above!

Are there in-person workshops for learning how to use synths?

Yes, check out our upcoming events!

What's the orientation session?

All first-time users of the Lending Library are asked to attend an hour-long online orientation that explains how the lending program works, before being able to reserve gear.

How can I volunteer with Synth Library Portland?
