Hello modular newbies! We’re holding another workshop for modular beginners in our beloved and once again rearranged SchneidersLaden. Our goal is that you can confidently make your own first patch afterwards and have a good time and also meet likeminded people! Although we are nerds we won’t get too technical. Along the way we will show you basic patch techniques, the workings of our showroom, as well as tell you some stories about the history of (modular) synths and the ever evolving Eurocrack scene. Feel free to come by even if you do not want to participate in the...Read More
For the forth time SchneidersLaden will host the Modular Schaltzentrale at Atonal. Every night the invited artists will perform in this unique former control room of the Kraftwerk. Therefor SchneidersLaden puts together several modular synthesizer of different size and shape – the concept is to explore new modular narratives with these special machines. The program of Schaltzentrale will be running each night of the festival concurrently with the concerts on the main stage. Situated within the old control room of the Kraftwerk – the Schaltzentrale offers a unique platform for intimate and surprising musical experiments on the selected modular...Read More

The products of three new manufacturers arrived at SchneidersLaden! All three produce eurorack modules but only two are making modules for audio. That said, LZX Industries video modules are now available! These fine modules are made for video synthesis – but the nice thing is, you can combine them with eurorack modules from Doepfer or other manufacturers. In one of our last workshops at SchneidersLaden, Stephane Lefrancois explained how he adds a simple Doepfer Matrix Mixer to his video rack. And this is also possible the other way round – you could use an LZX Sensory Translator as a...Read More
Stephane Lefrancois – from Lacroix Studios and one half of Kitmun – gives us an overview about his usage of LZX Industries video synthesis modules during this workshop at SchneidersLaden, that has been recorded in April. His relaxed and nondogmatic approach on this topic shows that there is a lot to explore and that it is possible to get great results even if you’re more familiar with modular synthesizers for audio. One great thing about this kind of synthesis is: it is partly usable with eurorack modules for audio – which makes this a possible new playground for everyone...Read More
Oldie but Goldie? There are certainly some modules that drifted out of focus, especially to new users of modular synthesizers. Today we will be retrospecting on modules that have been around for a long time and are still available. Looking back at the beginning of the eurorack format, it was quite easy to keep track of new developments – there was Doepfer from Germany and there was Analogue Systems from the UK. Both are still around and offer most of the modules they produced until today. And now it is even possible to put AS modules into a Doepfer...Read More
