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.

Ohwiegajelisdasdenn?

Morgen in der Domstadt Köln: Hier die sehenswerte Videoeinführung für Rheinländer und andere Anrheiner wie rheinische Fro-Naturen wahrscheinlich geschnitten von Rainer? ..!

P1090298Even more fun on modulars you can have inside Music store cologne until October 24th now; next Thursday.

Our old officemate Robert Henke alias Monolake will be playing the support and perform the festival as a concert together with others. Were looking forward meeting you there..

Lon don gone !

Towards new adventures we finally gave up the London showroom that we called the “testsalon” inside Rough Trade East.
London_2012After our friend Martin made it for awhile and finally Simon Lynch held a few brilliant workshops for newbees and runaways there – we thought its enough for now and time for a change again.
So please dont be sad once you dont see the nicely enlightened cabin there anymore, other new places will pop up soon. Heres some London videos on what we did there once and heres the video on what we will do with all the modules right now..
(further news to follow up soon).

Starter Systems, Doepfer A-100, MFB-News as well as a buchla Skylab will be shown and can be played by visitors with our help. Its just for one day, so .. lets make some noise and dont miss this, NRW!

Time to learn..

MKIV_2013_Schneider_4Grey sky is a good motivation to start a new indoor theme: If you want to learn more about modular stuff or electronic music participate in workshops: Apart from our constantly ongoing workshop every afternoon in kreuzberg there are some in London, next one on 29th this month.
Also on June, 29th there will be one in Berlin with Tom Körting who will teach you making weird sounds on our bigger system on an event in ..Friedrichshain (?). Another bigger system will be show on that DJ-meeting in Dortmund, Westfalenhalle (?), so there are possibilities enough these days.
we will keep you informed with details here about a week before the dates (!).

.. btw .. if you really want to go deeper with soldering things yourselves, Befaco is offering meetings for such in Berlin sometimes, please check their site.

 

Musikmesse videos ..

IMG_2878Looking back to last weeks exhibition of ALEX4 on the musikmesse we collected some links here to give you an impression on what has happened there:
A nice overview of the athmosphere with no comments on this years ALEX4 stand in Frankfurt has been given with this video, that I found on vimeo, thank you.
If you want competent informations about mellotrons or memotrons you should have been talking to klaus (german), who collected all the sounds for manikin electronic, their latest release is “harrys collection” now.
Dieter Doepfer is introducing his news on modular basics and the black MAQ-sequencer starting with his Midi/USB to clock converter modul (AHH!) here in english.
MFB has been presented by Uwe-George Giegler in english on sonicstate, Sebastian Preller gave a short overview of the specials on the Tanzbär and Mister Fricke confirmed the soon delivery in german here.
Edmund Eagan plays on the Haken continuum with sounds designed on the new Eagan Matrix, Dr. Lippold Haken gives a german comment on his production place   .. and finally ..
IMG_2883Max and Max informing you about a new MIDIclock by Erfindungsbuero Rest und Meier here .. and .. then there was a little overview with sonic state and HerrSchneider .. (.. and: sorry no, I did not mean that buchla is hard to service – not at all!).
Unfortunately they all missed to show the Cacophonator noir by Subtle Noise Maker from Vienna.

Kosmologische Konstante

The “kosmologische Konstante” – the name was given to it by Albert Einstein approx. 80 years ago – is explaining the existance of the DARK ENERGY ! Equipped with a multimodefilter and a modified waveform on its oscillator now the DARK ENERGY 2 is offering new horizonts for starters and advanced users. Very first units are available now from retail stores, more of them are still under construction !

Dark Energy II

The long awaited Dark Energy 2 by Doepfer will soon come in. Doepfer is getting a first batch of pre-serial models that will be checked and then the summer is finally at its end to let the most popular little synth of the last years will light up the world of darkness – oder so…

Hangfoglalas show!

In Hungary this weekend our partner analoguezone is introducing their range of products on a show for musical instruments called hangfoglalas! If you are around, please give it a chance and have a look, the stand is probably filled with stuff now.

Dark Times !

dark_energyThe Dark Energy by Doepfer unfortunately is discontinued and will be selling out soon. A follow up model will be released in Mai 2012, but slightly different: A 12 dB multimode-filter with LP, HP, BP, notch will be included instead of the 24dB LP now and the design will change a little bit towards that.

FULL STOCK!

A lot of brands fulfilled their promises and sent in new stuff before the end of the year. So now we are able to ship Ken Macbeths dual envelope and his new dual SV Filter (!), the Mute Synth, nearly all FLAME products, the new version of the plague bearer by Flight of Harmony,  all products by flower electronics, all new modules by intellijel designs, our dear OTO biscuit .. and for the very first time ALL eurorack modules by MOTM at the same time (!!), thank you, Paul.

Also completely in stock is the modular range of pittsburgh modular, two modules by STG (the so called suit and tie guy),  the new Polivoks VCO and the Piston Honda by TheHarvestman,  at least the yellow stackcables by tiptopaudio and their great new 808 bassdrum – everybody is really happy with it, thank you, Gur (!).

And even if they are not online, yet, we have stock of  BOTH Trogotronic modules (please ask for the second one), also the brilliant Micro Hadron Collider by WMD is in stock and finally that perfect DI box in your system called  TAI-4 by Vermona! .. so we are looking forward to another interesting modular new year and wish you a very good start for yours, too.

Schnäpperkens etze !!

saleTo clear up our shop a bit while making you happy we collected a bunch of very special offers now listed in Schneidersladen here. IN addition there is this list called SALE with single units from our demo that you can only order per email once. So please dont be to sad if you dont get it cause somebody else has been faster, thank you!

CASE DIY and other stuff

Since more and more modulicians seem to head for personal casing solutions on base of wether Doepfer’s or TipTop’s and Make Noise’s parts availible to achieve power distribution we decided to set up a new category on the web shop covering aluminium parts same as screws and psu’s.

We are also working to deliver hi-res photographs to show items in detail.

Please note, Z-Rails and the Rails we sell are just the same. For the dramatic weight these parts come up with, we decided not to import Z-Rail by airmail after discussing this with TipTop’s Gur Milstein. You know we have to protect the environment…still…

But for the fans of TipTop we had him send the Z-Ears still. These will also appear in the new category which will be switched on the next 2 – 3 days.

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.

Namm was nice..

having_fun_on_nammThis namm was a very nice time and we want to say thank you to all the manufacturers and inventors that we met there for doing it.  Paul and I recovered a bit and in between we could put together what we seen and heard about to give you an impression. I will upload this step by step hoping for your patience.

..na..? who is the ones on the pic? Send all four names in (as a comment) and you will win a free doepfer patch-cable and a DIY-LFO by analogue solutions if you are the first ten out of them – good luck !!

Shawns Analogue Haven..

johnpandpaulsDown in Hall E shawn alias analogue haven exhibited the stuff of our friends from doepfer, tiptopaudio, theHarvestman, Malekkoheavyindustries, MakeNoise, Livewire,  monorocket and last but not least a friendly guy from australia called john pillans alias Mungo enterprises. He introduced an insane awesome just the biggest desktopsynth ever, a starship console being an eight voice polyphonic digital cv-controllable synth with full memory. It seems to be a lot of fun in a brilliant look without words (see pic)! The price is still unclear (but this is not the issue).

Pimp your a-119

We have been informed a while ago yet, that the doepfer modules A-119 and the A-138d can have a much better quality if you exchange the amplification IC against this one! its just about a few cents (excluding shipment and work).

Quantizer ..

.. modules and 12tone scales seems to be en vogue again: There is one manufacturer thinking about his release of a better quantizer/arpeggiator that will probably happen within this year. If you are interested to start with existing possibilities, please check Doepfers A-156, reviewed now by our friend Nav on his forum clic here!

WAVESHAPING:

After first Doepfer units such as the A-137-1 and A-137-2 several american manufacturers released their own ideas of that theme: Still we have one very last unit of the prominent bananalogue WVX waiting for a client and then we will be waiting: The very next step will be a triple Wavefolder by Toppobrillo, if you want to know it first, please follow this link!

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.

MINI SYNTHESIZER:

Neben dem DARK ENERGY wird auch der ODDULATOR schon bald das Licht der Welt erblicken. Nach dem parallelen stelldichein der Prototypen auf der Musikmesse in Frankfurt wird auch der digitale oddulator als Serie in schwarzem Gehäuse erscheinen, wir bleiben gespannt. Ausserdem wird es noch die RAKETE und den MICROCON MIDI von Technosaurus noch einmal in begenzten Stückzahlen geben. Verfügbar ist de Facto derzeit nichts von alledem, außer .. der A-111-5 ist gekommen. Es geht doch nichts über einfache Lösungen, die sofort funktionieren, brilliant!
