Access Music Electronics

Christoph Kemper blended his love of music with his love of computer programming as early as 1986 when he put his Commodore 64 to use coding for musical sounds. Kemper formed Access Music Electronics in the late 1990s just after rolling out its first product, the Access Virus series A. The Virus synthesizers offered a unique sound that soon became a part of the styles of such artists as Dr. Dre, Nine Inch Nails, Dido and Fatboy Slim. Christoph continued to design and develop the Virus series, which continues to attract musicians at all levels.
