Francis "Narf" Capistrano
Director & Sound Developer
Narf has been a gigging musician since the early '90s and has been a keyboardist for several bands covering different styles of music.
From 2003-2005, he managed and performed 5 days a week in a trio, Dream Sequence, where the Korg Triton Studio was the main instrument. That group performed along sequenced tracks programmed by Narf on the Triton while he played the keyboard parts of the song live. He continues to play in and function and events cover band, Salacious, and would also be called in for session work for other groups in Melbourne Australia.
For over a decade, Narf was a keyboard sales specialist for a number of Australian music retailers specializing in electronic keyboards, digital pianos, arranger keyboards, synths, and workstations from Casio, Korg, Nord, Roland, and Yamaha. As a keyboard specialist, he provided technical support to customers and held regular product workshops in-store.
In 2017, he began making sounds he developed for the Korg Kronos available online through narfsounds.com. Since then he has expanded his product line to include sounds for the Yamaha Montage, Roland Fantom, and the Nord Stage 3.
Harry is a consummate perfectionist when it comes to his craft! He has played in a number of bands in the past decade and has been designing sounds for various Yamaha and Roland synths prior to owning his Roland Fantom and Yamaha Montage.
He is the co-developer for the Roland Fantom Famous Covers Set 1 and the Yamaha Montage & MODX Movie & TV Themes sound library and sole programmer of the Fantom Famous Covers Set 2.
