Our friends Dieter and Sibylle again showed up again with two huge systems and a couple of small ones, displaying as well all their recent modules as new units and prototypes. A-168 PWM Generator is able to alter pulsewidths of inputs e.g. triangles by changing them into squares with variable width. Basically it’s a comparator but smaller than the A-167. A-110-3 and -6 are early prototpyes of Thru Zero VCOs capable of generating more than just sine waves. A-106-5 SEM filter might be released in a vintage special edition with cream faceplate. A-121-2 is a protoype for a new multi mode filter with individual inputs. The most classic synth A-100 modules needed for creating an “old-fashioned” synth will be available in a vintage edition, sporting nicely black anodized faceplates, white legending and custom-made knobs. Price difference to standard version depends on the amount of knobs used for the module. On top of the black cases you can see the new, universal, Miniature Power Supply with IEC mains socket. The final pre-production version of the A-157 sub system was shown – a complex trigger sequencer with 8 rows, each with plenty of options like direction, first/last step, step inversion and mirroring. The expanders are included and can be mounted where you prefer them to be....Read More

The funny buddies from Audio Damage had a very nice illuminated rack full of their modules. Two new ones draw our attention, both drum voices yet entirely different: Boomtschak, a super flexible analog drum voice with excellent layout, an oscillator, envelopes and a filtered noise. From bass drums, toms, percussions and snares pretty every analog drum sound is possible except cymbals. BLD module, watch out! Neuron, a crispy and aggressive, digital FX drum voice. Boomtschak needs several weeks and will cost around 450, but the Neuron is available and goes for...Read More

Eventually we managed to check out the DATA module by Mordax in person and it is a really impressive tool with four channels; easy to use with several buttons and a pretty big display. Besides visualization and metering functions (oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, spectrograph, tuner and voltage monitor) it might as well be used as a generator! Use it either as LFOs/VCOs or as a 4-channel clock generator with plenty division settings, swing and voltage control over parameters. Release date is late may and the price 385...Read More
