From smooth and relaxed Ambient or Dub music to tripping and driving DnB, Breakcore, Techno and –...

More of our regularly unregular video releases of Workshops and Performances from SUPERBOOTH, SchneidersLaden and SchneidersBuero.

Video of Surgeon Workshop at SchneidersLaden

Herr Schneider is back with something new. During the next weeks there will be different releases of videos about workshops and performances from SUPERBOOTH17 and SchneidersLaden.

Liivatera – Estonian analog Trough Zero VCO

A new kid is in town! Liivatera is known for developing high grade, yet reasonably priced Eurorack modules. The Estonian company consistently manages to expand classic concepts with new ideas. The new Trough Zero VCO is one of just a few analog Trough Zero VCOs available in Eurorack today and it is one of the more affordable ones – next to the Doepfer A-110-4.  After a first test we can attest this is a serious VCO design with classic, analog sound, which can be twisted in a multitude of directions. Especially the thick, very musical results of linear frequency modulations are quite impressive. It comes equipped with seven audio outputs. Besides standards, there are connectors emitting a half-frequency square wave and a double-frequency sawtooth. For playing the circuit, conducting transpositions and so forth, a total of three CV inputs is available. One of them features an attenuator. Furthermore, the oscillator offers a linear FM input, which can be edited in its sensitivity. For more info please contact or visit...
