Harald Bode (1909-1987 Hamburg, Germany) was an electronic musical instrument design pioneer. Harald’s career spans 50 years of innovation, during which he produced over 15 instruments. In 1937 he built his Warbo Formant electronic organ which had capabilities similar to those found in modern synthesizers. In the 20 years that followed Harald developed a series of electronic keyboard instruments whose design variously balanced between imitating known instruments and enabling completely new sound possibilities. He is credited with the first modular synthesizer / processor and renowned for his later stand-alone processors. In addition to being an engineering hero, Harald Bode’s life is an inspiration to the field of electronic sound.
