During SUPERBOOTH19 there will again be dozens of different workshops in the areas of synthesizers, modular, DIY and more. Besides Gammon’s Modular Synthesizer Ensemble, about which you can learn more here, there are various ways to learn in a wide range of topics – from the basics of technical construction of electronic instruments and DIY to learning modular synthesis.

Learning Synthesis

One example are the workshops of experienced synthesizer expert Alissa DeRubeis, who is working for 4ms and the Synth Library. During SUPERBOOTH18 she gave workshops for female and non-binary guests to enable this group of participants to have their own beginner experiences. At least during the educational Saturday we will be able to offer this again, please note the program for the slots on the other days and all other workshops.

DIY area

The DIY area is an important part of every Superbooth. Each day of SUPERBOOTH19 several workshops of different manufacturers are planned. In this video Manu von Befaco talks about his experiences with DIY workshops at SUPERBOOTH18. He gives a good overview of the range of workshops – they are suitable for absolute beginners and advanced users. The DIY area will again bring electronics closer to the audience and show how they are assembled to form an instrument.

To participate please register asap via this side: If I got it right, you just go there to solder it together yourselves and sooner or later you will get it done and have your first own little synth – handmade, selfmade and to go.

Dieter Doepfer..

.. showed on namm a DIY-synthesizer as an already mounted board with all dsc_0073components completely mounted up. – DIY?? – You (?) just have to case it up and combine it with the controls and connections of your choice making it your individual piece of hardware for an affordable price. It could become a modular or not, it could be a big synth or just a little filter.
His prototype of the little touchplate keyboard became even smaller this year, both units could still take a while to be released. We will keep you informed.
