FLAME Workshop & Performance //Thursday 7:30pm

On Thursday September 5th SchneidersLaden presents a workshop with FLAME – not only will you be able to learn more about their many new designs, there will also be a performance part with music made on the Mäander!

Flame is a synthesizer brand from Berlin that is around for longer than most modular manufacturers. Berlin based inventor and FLAME-founder Per Salzwedel developed uncountable custom-made little instruments and helpers for individual needs such as small MIDI infrared controls, step sequencers and MIDI/CV interfaces. Nowadays the pallet of products ranges from modular utilities, VCOs, filterbanks to innovative standalone desktop synthesizers.

Just a few weeks ago FLAME released a new synthesizer concept in standalone format – the Mäander. A beautiful sounding synthesizer with four-voice polyphony, a filterbank and a wavetable oscillator. During the event at SchneidersLaden there will be a focus on the Mäander and selected modules by FLAME. What the Mäander is capable of will be presented by Thomas Wagner – who will play a performance for the audience at SchneidersLaden. Wagner is known for his projects Flirren and Herr Blum.

Tom Körting will talk you through this special machine and several of the highly interesting eurorack modules by FLAME. Check out FLAMEs latest developments – there are some really affordable and convenient designs available now, especially in terms of automation and live performance. Find them all here.

If you are new to modular, why not join SchneidersLadens Modular Beginner Workshop? Every Thursday at 6pm!

How to find SchneidersLaden:

The school holidays are over – time for another workshop series at SchneidersLaden! After hosting dozens of manufacturer and artist workshops over the past years, SchneidersLaden is happy to continue this tradition with another series in August and September.

Upcoming workshops:

15. August – Snazzy FX

We’ll start off on Thursday 15th of August with a veteran of the scene Dan Snazelle – Snazzy FX. One day before you can see one of his live techno sets at OHM. During the workshop we’ll also hear some of his music, but will mainly focus on his eye-catching modular and non-modular designs.

22. August – ALM Busy Circuits

A week later on the 22nd of August, we are happy to have Matthew Allum from ALM Busy Circuits here for a workshop and performance! We’ll have a close look at some of his developments – of cause the new SALMPLE 8-channel sampler module and the sooo handy Pamela’s New Workout.

29. August – SchneidersLaden Spezial

By the end of August – the 29th – we are doing a little SchneidersLaden Spezial – with lots of music by our team and conversations about what we are doing and why we are doing the things we do. Come by, enjoy a nice summer evening with the SchneidersLaden Team.

05. September – Flame

The first workshop in September is about an often overlooked brand from Berlin – Flame. With their new line of modules and their astounding stand-alone synthesizer Mäander, Flame is doing it again: Bringing highly specialized and tools with interesting performance features. And of cause we’ll have a listen to the Flame Mäander, which is a unique synthesizer concept that no one saw coming – it sounds fantastic!

12. September – Shakmat Modular

September 12th is reserved for Shakmat Modular! Constantly putting out new modules that bring more flexibility to all your clock-needs or solve the little annoying problems, for example the little helper HiPass. Francois is also preparing a little performance for us and will talk us through his patch – we are looking forward to this!

19. September – Verbos Electronics

The next workshop date got the title: Verbos Takeover! Be prepared for a full evening of Verbos Electronics goodness – this includes the Modular Beginner Workshop at 6pm! Followed by the main workshop where we’ll have a look at the current line of Verbos modules and …let’s all hope for a couple of minutes of Marks legendary live sets – fingers crossed.

26. September – Starting with Buchla

The last date of this workshop series is all about Buchla. One of the most iconic names in modular history is still a mystery to most – so we’ll have a look at the Music Easel, their modular line and we’ll listen to some of the sounds that build the legacy of this brand. So this evening is an invitation to all that are not familiar with Buchla and want to get their head around these special synthesizers. To get an impression of how it feels to dive into the rabbit hole named Buchla Music Easel, we invited one of our customers to talk about his first months with this instrument.


And don’t forget that there always is a Modular Beginner Workshop before the events described above. The Beginner Workshop starts at 6pm and all participants are invited to also join the main workshop too! All other events begin at 7:30pm and they are suitable for beginners too.


Osaka and Berlin News ..

driftbox_6In time for the upcoming Musikmesse uncounted manufacturers are now releaseing their new products and innovations. Starting with the limited series of the REON driftbox from Osaka -here and there misunderstood as a simple dronebox – .. especially in the eurorack range there will be plenty of news very soon. The so far hottest thing from my point of view is the 4VOX by Flame from Berlin being presented mid April together with nearly 40 other brands and manufacturers on the booth of SchneidersBuero in Frankfurt, Germany.

! Schneidersladen 2.0 !

attentionWe have a new webshop, now.  All of our existing clients will get an email latest tomorrow (july, 2nd) with their new login and pass to be able to see existing orders, to add new ones or so.

Burqamaschinen on Friday

Burqamaschinen and our Friend and client Thomas Rehnert will be playing  live sets this Friday in Berlins Le Secret AV-Club starting at 9pm.

Thomas Rehnert will be using an A-100 modular system and the Video image processor by  Dave Jones that seemingly none of our clients except Thomas Rehnert did understand so far.

So if you want to know more about modular video performances go there to see what to make with such impressions, thank you.

Clockwerk Forum news

No, not everything is true what you read in forums on the web! With the famous FLAME clockwork unit there was a Midi to CV/Gate converter added , that did not work properly latest after the unit was updated to give out 5V always after fulfilling that demand from clients. Now somebody wrote about a chip update that somehow could fix this minor bug, unfortunately this is wrong. IF you send note events into the clockwork as long as there are rhythmical events to shift or divide at the same time – This is the brilliant function of the unit ! – the outgoing CV for the notenumber is mostly flickering in the rhythm. Its not a bug – its a feature.  So .. if you need a CV-interface, just buy one, we have some .. and the clockwork is great !

The Tame Machine..

The Tame Machine by Flame has been brought in and mounted up to one of our demoracks yesterday by the inventor himself. While explaining it to us he let us know, that in earliest one week – meaning towards the end of the month – we will have first serial models that can be used to fulfil your orders. It has been much fun playing around on harmonies with this compact unit .. please see the first few pictures on Navs modular lab here and .. read more about the product very soon here .. and order your one right now here, please!

Six in a row for low ..

The six-in-a-row by Flame alias Mr. Per Salzwedel will be coming in very soon. Fascinated by its possibilities we could order some more units in advance to offer an introducing-very-special-price of 299 EUR only for the very first 50 units now. Even after we did not understand all the possibilities of the sequencer-like unit, we strongly recommend to go for it finding new and other ways to sequence your events and happenings. We are working on further textes, please watch the videos on his site!


Der Berliner Hersteller Flame alias Per Salzwedel .. sorry .. the berlin based inventor Flame will be releasing very soon one of his favorite musical instruments as a serial product finally:  The six in a row will be a new generation of sequencing tools where he is one of the most innovative heads of this millenium so far. After his famous clockwork the echometer seemed to be a bit too complicated for most of us, but I am sure that also this product will get back becoming a top seller if we once understood a bit more of the flamish ideas. So stay tuned and have a look. Shipment will be end of october, his other products will not be available again before that, so keep seated on the waiting lists.
