For everything else please ask or give us your preorder, we will get back to you as soon as we can.

..a JoMoX 999?

.. became a rare unit in between and can now once be bought used from one of our dear clients in need for some money. If your interested please send an email or just call and ask for Carlo, please. Even more used stuff, demo units that we would like to get rid of and other specials can be found in an extra category called all Specials / Sonderverkäufe on our website SCHNEIDERSLADEN. It will be filled and updated towards every weekend from now on.

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.

Reviews on Modulars..

.. are on the web by our friend NAV: He was playing with the choices by flight of harmony. They also made e a brilliant delay module called sound of shadows now – by the way!. The other review is showing the pressure points by make noise on navs modular lab over here. In between we also got the FSR1 by the newcomer Synthwerks, also from the US. From my personal view the FSR1 is more sensibel after they used the more expensive pressure sensors.

Macbeth again!

After a few months of more important private issues Ken Macbeth now sent again some dual oscillators and the first bunch of the brilliant backendfilters that has been announced in his workshop november 2009 to come next week. So if you ordered already, thank you for your patience, if you did not you better do it now.

Metasonix coming!

Metasonix has now sent a first bunch of the R54 supermodulemt_r54, what is in fact  a modular tube oscillator making his little series of modular components for the eurorack nearly complete (for now!). The oscillator is not yet uploaded to our webshop but you can send formless mail-orders if you want one.

The Tame Machine..

The Tame Machine by Flame has been brought in and mounted up to one of our demoracks yesterday by the inventor himself. While explaining it to us he let us know, that in earliest one week – meaning towards the end of the month – we will have first serial models that can be used to fulfil your orders. It has been much fun playing around on harmonies with this compact unit .. please see the first few pictures on Navs modular lab here and .. read more about the product very soon here .. and order your one right now here, please!

Leploop available

beta1For one or two weeks already we have two out of those nice little Leploops by their italian inventor Antonio in stock. These units are not to be sold for 375 EUR only as it was posted on matrixsynth once, we paid more per unit ourselves – no shipment to germany nor VAT included (!). They are made even better now than ten pre serial models as reviewed in germanys magazine de_bug >(#138) but the new ones will sell for 599 EUR now, whats still calculated very friendly. If youre interested, please check out one of them in our showroom yourselves or just send us a formless mail, the item is not online yet, we work on it, thank you for some patience.

More Cwejman modules..

Cwejman will be sending backorders this week, so we will at least fulfil your existing orders of ADSR-VC2, D-LFOs, RES4 and MX4S. In addition there will be some VCO6 available again soon, too. After having done this Cwejman will make more of the new ones again – BLD, MMF6, RG6 and CTG-VC – hopefully coming in a few weeks or a month. Thank you for your patience if you had to wait.

SEM with Midi ..

The SEM by Tom Oberheim could be realized with the Midi connection soon. The hardware is in production already, some software issues could make us wait another two months or so, but looking forward to a brilliant and nice little tool to come we ARE happy!

Oberheim SEM..

Some more of the SEM units originally built by Tom Oberheim will be coming in this week. We can fulfil most of the reservations, but were sorry that its not enough already to have some available from stock. If you want one, please make a preorder and we will get back to you as soon as they will be coming in again, thank you.

Manufacturers pos(T)ing!

After uncounted inquiries for ‘available’ products we would like to let you know, that mostly units are not in our stock nor available before WE know of it. Usually we recognize incoming goods quite well and inform our clients as soon as we can, sometimes you are indeed faster than we are, sorry, but .. :  (Sometimes..) ..nervous manufacturers and busy collueges from all over the world like to state an item as available in that Moment where there is the plan to send it now. So please – dear Manufacturer – feel free to let us know about it in time, that we can update our files to just have some clicks left when the package arrives. And please – dear customer – trust in us as we trust in the manufacturers telling us that e.g. none of the sequencer EUROPA has been shipped nowhere so far, that there has been NO MOTM modules shipped to us already and that the Updates of TheHarvestman are not always possible nor easy nor fixing all kind of problems – sorry.
b.t.w… Hunde die gerade bellen, beissen ja nicht und ich glaube, auch Hersteller die gerade zwitschern, verpacken nicht (?).

SnazzyFX

.. A new line of stompboxes for desktop use called SnazzyFX will be in our program as soon as they will be available. This could last til april 2010 as the inventor just let us know. We will keep you posted.

Flight of Harmony..

dsc_0056The sound of shadows by flight of harmony seems to be an interesting and very strange little delay module, we heard it shortly performed by shawn and were very impressed. Well done, thank you.

Piston Honda

TheHarvestman is going ahead with making interesting modular stuff with good ideas and unusual functions here and there. The piston honda was announced to be shipped already but as usual it takes its time to become really good. So probably during January we will have a first model shipped over to finally let you know more about it here.

Metasonix modules

The R52 by metasonix and some other modules are unfortunately out of stock at the time in schneidersbuero, but they are very attraktive for interesting sounds apart from just noise. In addition to this Video on you tube showing the R52 in use there is a great interview with its inventor Eric Barbour in this months german synthesizer magazin. In addition with the review about the latest Release called Assblaster KV100 it is a reason to go for it.

Simple Sync Shifting…

To shift your midi clock has long time been a dream for 808-users at least while that prominent drummachine is always running a bit out of time. The sync shift Mark2 by innerclock systems from Australia gives you the option to shift the midi clock or an incoming sync24 clock forwards or backwards. The result can be converted back into midi inside the same unit and so you can shift whatever you want. Now coming in again from the other end of the world in limited numbers.

Schippmann ..

Der Filter Ebbe und Flut von Schippmann ist vorübergehend ausschließlich vom Hersteller selbst zu beziehen und das weltweit. Der Hersteller hatte sich wegen Absatzsorgen schon fast abmelden wollen, als ihm diese Massnahme ein wenig den Kopf hat retten können. Wir hoffen sehr, daß das Produkt auch als Ware bald wieder in unseren Regalen liegen wird, vorübergehend ist das leider nicht möglich.

Ah sorry, The Ebbe und Flut by Schippmann is from now on only direct and worldwide from the inventors website available. He had some problems with distributions, money and pricings that this was the only way to solve it at least for a while. Looking forward meeting his wonderful filter back in our stock one day we wish him luck to get these things done.
