Macbeth visions..

If you see the website of our dear friend Ken Macbeth from scotland, you could think that 5 rackspace big modular units can be ordered right now, ..  if you search the web, you could find his visions of a brilliant new little synth or a new little oscillator and good music, but .. as long as we dont have them, we stay unable to sell them to you!

More Cwejman ?

The number of modules that we are waiting for from grandmaster wowa cwejman had to be increased  to more cw_s1_sthan 200 again these days. After finishing up another batch of the Cwejman S1 halfmodular Synthesizers this is still a lot of work for the one man company and will probably not be done completely before new years eve.  We hope for your patience and kindly ask you to get back to us for alternatives in time if nessessary. Thank you.

On October 10th we would be happy meeting you for our release of the modular testsalon inside Rough Trade East, please see more details on SchneidersBuero and/or here during next week. We still work on it.

watching totally wired

To see the film called totally wired about what we are doing here – there will be a public screening/viewing (??) in our neighborhood very soon: September 30st, (in time to our 11th birthday b.t.w.) we will give it some words and a patch in kreuzbergs club “west germany”.. read about this here !


intellijelmodulmixIntellijel Design has send us finally their little helpers that are so small and tiny that you will have no problems to find a gap for them in your systems. A multiple with just 2 HP and/or a buffered multiple and/or and AND/OR module as well as spok and more is now available from stock ex Berlin.

Please ignore if you can not find these or others on the existing Schneidersbuero-Site, we are busy working on an update. Thank you for some patience and have a nice day.

Videoamt support

Finally accepting new media ways for old analogue ideas was a hard thing for me. An old friend alias videoamt brought me there and it looks like we will have some good fun with movies in our near future. Have a look and give it a bit, its growing right now.

Goodbuy demoon.

We are selling out our very last Gotharman deMoon synthesizer units now! This gotharman_demoon_beispiel should give you some impressions about whats possible with it. We did not buy the additional available updates for the extra money already, we just made the units extra cheap for you to afford it yourselves.

By the way.. the inventor of this brilliant little synth from denmark also designed the stepsequencer Cyclus3 that has been realized by a swiss company called spectral audio. One very last unit of the cyclus and two quite good racksynths called Neptune2 from our demo/support rack are selling out now, too.  Please ask for availability.

Clockwerk Forum news

No, not everything is true what you read in forums on the web! With the famous FLAME clockwork unit there was a Midi to CV/Gate converter added , that did not work properly latest after the unit was updated to give out 5V always after fulfilling that demand from clients. Now somebody wrote about a chip update that somehow could fix this minor bug, unfortunately this is wrong. IF you send note events into the clockwork as long as there are rhythmical events to shift or divide at the same time – This is the brilliant function of the unit ! – the outgoing CV for the notenumber is mostly flickering in the rhythm. Its not a bug – its a feature.  So .. if you need a CV-interface, just buy one, we have some .. and the clockwork is great !

New Sounds inside HAKEN!

The amazing Haken continuum controller now has additional sounds delivered with its latest O.S. called continuum_blog4.07.  Slide Wind, Metal Bar, Pluck Tine, and a Feedback String sounds like reasons to buy such an instrument as long as you can afford it and if you do not already own one! The new firmware, a new Editor, and a the User Guide are available from the manufacturers Download page here.

And finally the beautyful stand for the continuum is now available for fullsize and halfsize units. We have to wait for the first shipment another month, but if you see these pics.. one month for such is not a lot!

Cwejman modules ..

dsc_0118Wowa Cjwejman is busy making even more of his prominent modular components: After they have only been available on preorder for a long time now very soon we will have some stock again that is not promised already: Please check your need for the white MMF-6 and BLD units, his most brilliant RES-4, The FSH-1 and please check the web for incoming new CRV-24. For everything else please ask or give us your preorder, we will get back to you as soon as we can.


Vermona is back with a new version of their most famous spring reverb unit. The new RETUBEVERB now has a XLR balanced in and out apart from all existing good sound features that already their earlier model had. In a new steel casing it can also be mounted into 19″racks again optionally.


With the current exchange rates from EUR to USD (and the other way round) we will probably have to increase some prices for US Import stuff very soon. So please be aware that US items could become more expensive for people inside Europe.  At the same time we welcome new clients from countries outside Europe ordering good stuff from the europeans for better prices now!

.. thanks to FedEx, UPS, BP and others making it so cheap to burn down the house, or what?

The tetra maps

From canada we ordered some units of the tetra eurorack – a follow up module of the discontinued desktop MAPS – a complex reborn sequencer now for the modular system. Some first modules will be coming over around the end of march.

Cwejman cancelled:

The workshop with Wowa Cwejman – planned for May, 13th – has unfortunately been cancelled by the inventor himself right now. We are very sorry for this to those who already confirmed their participation and look forward to a new date in autumn this year hopefully.
