A talented musician is hoping to drum up some business for his synthesizer creation and build upon a glowing educational career.

Jason Lim (26) recently graduated with a degree in electronic production and design at the world-famous Berklee College of Music in the USA and is now looking to produce and sell his Nebulae synth through his own QuBit Electronix business.

The former Braes High School pupil and Rock the Talk tutor began QuBit with a fellow student while still studying at Berklee.

He said: “QuBit Electronix consists of myself and Andrew Ikenberry from Los Angeles. We build synthesizers in the Eurorack modular synthesizer format and for the last year I’ve been in Boston, while Andrew has been in LA

“I actually joined him in LA for months at a time while we built production runs. We’ve been in Scotland and Europe since late June and will be returning to the States in early August.

“We are actually going to be setting up shop in Brooklyn, New York.”

A gifted violinist, guitarist and drummer, Jason gained a BA at the University of the Highlands and Islands in Perth before heading to Berklee, where he was a member of the college’s Interdisciplinary Arts Ensemble and performed all over the world.

He said: “My time at Berklee was incredible. I studied as a guitar principle, but ended up focusing my study within the electronic production and design department, going down the road of computer programming, visual media and interdisciplinary performance art.”

Jason was taken under the wing of Berklee faculty members Neil Leonard and Dr Richard Boulanger and credits them as major influences in the direction his life is now taking.
