The Music Easle!

IMG_2897As the biggest surprise of last years NAMM show the Buchla Company (now BEMI) released their plans to re-build the Music Easle.
In their homeland USA they could sign around a 100 orders on the day of the release only (as they told themselves) later on they confirmed distributional agreements and collected orders and additional money from the rest of the world including europe. Our general distribution partner direclty ordered a bunch of units that has been preordered by clients in between, so these first ones are probably gone already. Because nobody knows, if and when the units will come, if they will work the way they should and how many pre-orders BEMI has on the list before us (and you), we should all together just go ahead wating in patience to talk further later on (?!).
If you really want one (?), we strongly recommend you to either set an order with a partner that does not ask YOU for a prepayment (international orders usually ARE prepaid) or to order from a partner around the corner, that you can trust to return the prepayment even if the unit does (unexpectingly) not come before you decide to buy something else one day. .. so Schneidersladen is taking care for a list, but all incoming orders NOW will be forwarded not before we once had a first working unit from our very early order on the desk. Thats why WE took the unit temporarily offline.

LZX Industries

p1060569(NAMM 2012/7) Lars and Ed alias LZX industries introduced us to a huge rack halfway filled with just modular components for video creativity. the possibilities of a complex system of modular video tools to generate quite nice things for video outputs are quite impressive. So far just a few more experienced musicians e.g. plasticman or senior coconut are interested in such so we did not yet work out to get it in to berlin for our demo, but „circumstances could change“ as Don Buchla said earlier today.

BUCHLA selling ..

975_1320(NAMM 2012/2) After I already offered it three times without any feedback, this year I met again Mr. Don Buchla on the show to talk about a partnership.. „Circumstances did change“ was the introduction to let me know, that his brand and company was sold completely to MV pro audio now, who is distributing brands like Waldorf and SM proaudio. So it could happen that they will turn Mr Buchlas „system in progress“ from a never ending story into a real product one day to get it selling? – we will see.

Chuck Noisebug Jr..

moonmodularThe booth of Noisebug alias Chuck Oken jr. was the third adress on NAMM that was a must see for us (and you?) this year. They have been showing the stuff of Don Buchla and associates again together with, Vermona, the brilliant modules by Moon Modular and more. Noisebug is running a real showroom at the earlier Analogue Heaven adress in addition to the usual onlineshop. After they now show again some outstanding good units including bigger modular stuff (5 rackspace) they probably found their place in this US competition of three retailers in the same area and range.
