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.

Raketen im Anflug

The combination of a Cwejman VM-1, the Midi-CV-interface -a190-2 combined in a Doepfer beauty case is a brillint little compact synth that we call RAKETE now. There will be some available in about a month but unfortunately we will not be able to sell them for the price that has been published in the german magazine de-bug. In the end it will be sold in an extra thin black beauty cases cause its just the best solution and will cost you 759 EUR incl VAT then. Reservations can be set now on schneidersladen.

MFB 522 in just one day:

After months of working down the list of preorders finally now Mr MFB is nearly as fast as sales go and we could have the 522 shipping out to you the very next day when you order. This could change when more people read the latest review in this months german KEYS magazine and elsewhere. Togther with the 522 there is also a report about the Miami by  acidlab that is unfortunately not available over resellers at all.
And on page 19 there is a picture of the space station, where I was reminded to let you know about the Ursa Major modul to come: It is hard work to make a brilliant reverberation for the modular and so it could still take a bit, but it will come for sure, we will let you know!

Sync Shifting ..

The sync shifter from Australia will be coming again soon. Unfortunately the sync lock will still need a bit more time, something has been much more complicated as expected.

About forums ..

NO, Wowa Cwejman is not going out of business and .. NO the JoMoX 888 is not so buggy, that you can not use it on stage and .. NO .. please do not believe everything that has been written to the internet.
Stromkult is a blog with that what we know about those units that we buy from some small manufacturers we like. If WE tell something about them this is mostly what they told us earlier and it could be true. And YES .. Mr. Wowa Cwejman Is working on new modules and he will release them, but not one day before they will be ready. We are looking forward to this and  all the other interesting releases in our little market, and – YES, it could take a little longer sometimes!

Cwejman time again ..

Cwejman S1 units are now in production again. our backorders will finally be shipped between May, 20st and 28th ex Berlin.  For new orders it still could take longer after the production is rather limited.
Cwejman Modules will need another few weeks at least  so we can serve existing backorders second half of June latest.  Thank you for your patience if you already ordered, if not please feel free to do so at Schneidersladen now.

Macbeth modular

Mr Ken Macbeth from scotland is on the way to release some modules in the bigger five rackspace system. Some first pictures reminded on the famous minimoog, the sound quality of his earlier product has always been brilliant and so .. we are looking forward seeing them. Unfortunately the first prototypes are sometimes far away from the serial production in the timeline, so do not get nervous.
We will let you know, when they will be coming true.
