Come over on Thursday, November 10th for a special  introduction to modular workshop  with our friends Touellskouarn!  Our goal is to help you get familiarized with the modular so that you can confidently make your first patch! This time around you will also have the opportunity to learn directly from Gaël of Touellskouarn how to add life and color to this first patch using feedback and fuzz with the likes of the Strakal Brulu and Sonveskan modules.

Although we are nerds we won’t get too technical.  Along the way we will show you basic patch techniques as well as talking about how one can start applying them to make music. Starts at 6pm / At our showroom / Kotti above Kaisers (ring bell: schneidersladen) / The workshop is limited to 12 participants:

Finally back in stock at Schneiders

Yo, time for an update regarding products which have been out of stock for a while or are so popular that they sold out quickly. Most products have been completely reserved for a longer time but just to let you know^^

Cwejman:
Good news: The MX-4S, BLD, FSH-1 and DMF-2 just were delivered today.
Bad News: Unfortunately Cwejman had to rise prices due to the higher US-Dollar exchange rate making electronic components pricey.

The Harvestman sent a couple of modules as well, some Polivoks stuff as well as the Double Andore Mk2.  Too bad the Stillson Hammer Mk2 was not included – be patient, please.

Then we also received goods from Mannequins and Grendel‘s Drone Commander 2 Eurorack module plus a few expanders – all of these are available from stock

Join Europe: iTs CHEAP now!

The european money is cheaper than ever at least for people in the US and the UK now. Unfortunately for europeans the products from these countries are much more expensive now .. the other way round, so… a lot of our prices for modulars and others finally had to be increased now. So please accept the raise from 7% to 10% average with some very attractive modular series,
… we are sorry. New prices are online and valid now!

.. And finally: Be welcome and  join Musikmesse in Frankfurt/Germany – it will be April, 15th to 18th this year – spring time with even more new stuff for even better prices, .. perhaps!

Tiptop Audio NEWS

Schneidersladen BerlinTiptop audio was introducing here in berlin now another two prototypes of interesting new modules to be released soon. The circadian rhythm (see upper pic) will be a very complex step sequencer with 8 by 8 plus 8 multi colored buttons and more that makes it very easy to use as Konstantin Gervis could show live in a workshop at Central Music around the corner now.

Schneidersladen BerlinThe second one was an even better looking module – the quantizer, that unfortunately could not have been explained too deep nor showed as good as the sequencer because the time became short. There was so many other hot stuff by tiptop audio to be explained and performed in the workshop, but we will check the remaining details very soon.

 

Attenuator cable ..

komaac_1After KOMA Elektronik successfully took care of the question “where do I store my patch cables?”, they now released another product to simplify the modular users´ daily business: The KOMA Attenuator Cable with one jack socket on one side, a jack plug on the other side and a slider in the middle enables the user to attenuate and adjust both CV and audio signals between modules from zero to infinity. A practical solution, not only for use with modular systems.

808 Maracas ..

MA808 SmallTiptop audio now released another percussion instrument for the eurorack format, the 808 style Maracas. It is not that complicated to built a workshop around this, but I guess it makes sense to see how much fun you can have making music with a few more of the tiptop audio eurorack modulars: On September 18th in the evening there will be a workshop in Berlin with Kostya Gervis and other friends. .. on 24th and 25th they will do the same on ibiza during the www.dancefair-ibiza.com !

Tiptop Audio Workshop Berlin

electronics-repairs2On September, 18th – still a while – there will be a workshop for runaways about the modular world of tiptop audio by Kostya Gervis held in berlin kreuzberg for tiptop audio.

Thomas K Workshop

workshoppic1Tomorrow – Friday 13th (!) – we will celebrate a first workshop about modulars held by our new product specialist Thomas K expecially for starters on the eurorack system. At 6pm we will start in our showroom at the Kottbusser Tor, berlin for just 10 people that has to please confirm the participation via email asap (click here). There are still three places left or so .. and its free for friendy guys and girls. So if you ever wanted to know what we are talking about and you dont understand nothing, yet – this is your chance to go.

Friday 13th: for starters

Thomas K. – product specialist for modulars at SchneidersLaden – will start with the first issue of a series for (absolute) modular beginners workshops this Friday, the 13th of june.
In order to prevent the usual yet confusing patch noodling orgies we put a small yet flexible system in the center. With that as a basis we will approach the very basics of patching techniques, integration with external devices and (later on) unconventional ways of getting a sound out of this box.
Workshop is limited to 10 participants and will start at 6pm (until 8pm).
First come, first serve – please make your reservation directly to tc@schneidersladen.de now.

Musikmesse Aftershow 2/2

Centralmusic_KarrussellTonite in Kreuzbergs Oranienstrasse (#188!) we will have a workshop with Mark Verbos from New York introducing his eurorack products at around 8pm, this will be held in english. Then there will be a session with either Peter Kirn presenting his Meeblip synth and/or the Koma boys performing their pedals and Kommanders. Still before 10pm we will have a second rare introduction where Christian Halten will introduce his W-Lan interface for the Buchla Music Easel together with the chief technician from Buchla responsible for their production site. As on Musikmesse Mister MFB junior (the Tanzbär !) will take care for some drinks and good fun as we will do ourselves.

NAMM RETURNS

tiptop_sequencermodulThis years Namm was really an outstanding familar feeling and one of the nicest meetings I ever had there – with most of the modular nerds from down to Hall E. I am  looking forward to return hopefully next year and will upload a few more videos now showing a bit of it. There are a few left to do and I hope you like em. The Tiptop audio guys was missing unfortunately at the Jaegerhaus, so heres a pic of them. See you again soon and warm regards from LAX.

The little buchla boat

Buchla_boat_Namm_2014On this video Jeff is introducing us to the little threeboat by buchla that should be released “mid this year/soon”. It contains a Midi/usb to CV interface that also converts from minijack to banana in a new halfsize format that just exists in these little boats so far. Two more (classical) 200e modules can be added and used as a stand alone starter system then.

Theres news ..

ek-lounge-1There are plenty of new modules available for the Eurorack modular. Some of them are not really nessessary, others offer new possibilities and a lot more will be shown on Namm very soon. We will collect the news from there to let you know about it here and in our showroom. Usually such new stuff is not available in Europe before April once they all calm down a bit after the shows they had to do. Everything that should be relevant for you will probably be seen in Frankfurt then, so .. calm down and or ask, we try our best to help you  (…here and now).

Pittsburger Togo!

P1080497The compact Pittsburg System 1 has been a good idea for starters by that symphatic young manufacturer Richard Nicol from Pittsburg. Finally now – about a half a year later – they came in and invite you to add another small halfmodular synth (the synthblock) with midi and out and more in a modular case to your  synth park for camparable low money now. You can also add further modules of nearly any kind in such a compact case if you are ready to find your own wooden side panels or other solutions (as seen in the pic).

workshoppic1In 2011 we took our modular stuff mounted up in a Karrussell to the Club Kater Holzig,Berlin for a gig during the Bermuda (Berlin Music days 2011). Carlo Krug, Tom, Paul and HerrSchneider was performing the furniture mixed down on the club PA by Thomas “sternchen” Stern.


This Video
 has been made to introduce the gig and the idea of the karrussell. In the end it was not the way as we expected it, but as Tom said in this “part 1“: “Its the nature of an experiment that it may fail” ..what was quite wise. Carlo stated “Less is mostly more”, but HerrSchneider confirmed that “we had some fun”, even after loads of work with it.

The Karrussell will be in use again now: HerrSchneider takes it to some venues and festivals over europe to perform some kind of sound and workshop again:
Vienna, Moozak Festival: 18./19. September
Munich, DigitalAnalog: 11./12. October
and Cologne, Synthesizer days inside Music Store: 15./16. October,
then back home to Berlin.
