Kenton Electronics was founded in 1986 by UK-based musician John Price. The company was borne out of Price’s desire to equip his Oberheim OBX synthesizer with MIDI functionality. Since the expander was too expensive, Price built his own. Since then, Kenton has identified several gaps in the music technology market and produced products to fill them. Some of their most widely-used devices include the Pro DCB mk3 MIDI-to-DCB converter, the Pro 2000 mk2 MIDI-to-CV converter, and the MIDI Thru-25 MIDI Splitter.
