A guy called Rolf alias broken silicon from frankfurt/germany introduces his first modul GAINSBURG now. A clever and yet effective to use stereo vca design built out of high end components to achieve supreme noise level. We have a test module now in our berlin showroom to let you put your hands on and listen yourselves.
Left and Right channel each offer a gain make up at ultra low noise of 24dB, and can surely be patched one after the other to achieve 48dB of gain. This in case all via dedicate offset control as well as via control voltage. also very suitable to amplify stereo signals such as coming from ipods and such like. Retail price will be around 269,-€. We start collecting your pre-orders this week after the product could have been launched in our webshop.

Menschmaschine / Lecture-Gig

Ein Musiker und sein Synthesizer – Ein Synthesizer und sein Musiker? Experten vs. User, Leidenschaft und Nerds, Algorithmen und Gefühle, Sound und Musik, Bediener und Maschinen, elektronische Reflektionen über die Beziehung von Menschen und Maschinen: das alles ist Teil von “Menschmaschine”, einem Lecture Konzert. Der Musiker Kai Niggemann ist das Interface des Abends: unterstützt von seinem Modularen Synthesizer und eingetaucht in elektronische Live-Musik.  Entlang seiner Setlist nimmt er uns mit auf eine Reise, macht er das Nerdige als Leidenschaft erlebbar und erklärt, wie elektronische Musik gemacht wird, wie der Sound in die Welt kam und weshalb er selber Musik macht. Und was hat diese Musik eigentlich mit unserer Gesellschaft zu tun?Das Performance Label Paradeiser Productions aus Münster/Hamburg präsentiert eine exklusive Berlin-Preview.

Australian Invasion

koala_landed We have a new friend from australia -” huggy ”- who travelled the long way with her young one – to avoid  the brutal heat from the bush – and we really enjoy the little smell of eucalyptus in our store – big thanx to the koalaexpress.


aors130_webFrom now on we are happy to distribute Analogue Systems through Europe. We have most modules in stock and their good patchcables in sets of five. Housings, keyboards and whatever is available from Mr. Bob Williams can be ordered! We´re working on adding the products into our online shop. Since we do not copy other text but write our own this takes a certain time.

We are very happy about this partnership as we always found Bob’s modules very, very interesting and useful in the Eurorack section, he for example had loopable envelopes when Tony Rolando was still in middle school__

Analogue System’s Quantizer e.g. allows for making own scales from the scratch. Not just selecting notes from semitone scales… Surely the most sophisticated item in this product group.



Holidays ve started and we are a bit decimated.
With our mail support we try to be as fast as possible – but they are just to many – tati2and here and there we need a bit more time for them. so .. Sorry if it  takes a bit longer than normal.
we wish all  of you a nice summer,

cheers from all the schneiders

We wish happy holidays

Holiday season starts and we wish all our customers a wonderful holiday – take your synth to the beach and have fun with your family or your dog

Sure we stay open – and will fullfill your wishes –

but some of our beloved  colleques making in holiday too – and may there will be days were we need a bit longer for support etc …

please forgive us ….

so ve fun & tons of good music -!


Sometime it´s good to hold in for a second

A short explanation to everybody who is new in the modular/analog world: often we are asked why it takes so long for some products to be back in stock and why the delivery times can be so long.

See, nowadays we live in a fast world where we are used to order stuff and get them immediately. Well, in our branch it is different, as most of our manufactures work completely alone or in very small companys and some of them still make (parts of) their products by hand. It´s not mass production from Far East where our manuafcturers get containers of readymade products. Besides the production job they manufacturers also are busy to invent new and interesting modules and synths – and that´s what´s it all about, right? 🙂

We always try our best to deliver as soon as possible and to have it in stock for pick up in our shop. But the analog world still is a little village and good things need time – so if some product takes a while to be available please just take a breath and be patient – we and the manufacturers try the best to make you happy and don´t forget you !!! Cheers 🙂new_modular1
