Morley® started off in the late 60’s by two brothers Marv and Ray Lubow. The company was first called Tel-Ray Electronics and was located in southern California. As Ray began tinkering around with a smaller alternative to a Leslie speaker, the company name Morley® was born. The name was actually a play on the name Leslie / Morley® (Less / More). The company produced many inventive effects through 1989 when Morley® was acquired by Sound Enhancement Products.

THE MORLEY HISTORY
In 1983 founder Hans Nordelius created the Digital Percussion Plate 1 – the first drum pad allowing for dynamic playing using sampled sounds. The DPP1 was an instant success and soon thereafter the brand name ddrum was introduced. The innovative ddrum pads featured real heads and hoops and gained huge popularity – many people still regard them as the best digital drum triggering system around!
In 1995 Clavia released its first synthesizer, the Nord Lead. Its unique take on emulation of analog synthesis, combining a distinctive sound with an intuitive user interface made it an instant classic. Magnus Kjellander joined Clavia in -96 and brought with him a new approach to the company in terms of software design. The Nord Modular, released in 1997 was the first digital modular synthesizer, possibly the most flexible, innovative synthesizer that has ever been on the market... Today, Nord continues to push new boundaries and solidify themselves at the top of anybody's "who's who" of keyboard manufacturers.
