Tiptop Audio and Konstantin Gervis @SUPERBOOTH17

Tiptop Audio product specialist and artist Konstantin Gervis played a Gesprächskonzert at SUPERBOOTH17. Konstantin is long time Tiptop Audio user and composed his live rig almost entirely with Tiptop Audio modules. The pretty complete product line with VCOs, envelopes, sequencers, effects, sample players and the mighty drum modules Tiptop offers a suitable range of modules for playing techno and most other styles of electronic music live.

In this video Konstantin explains his live rig, how it is composed, which modules he uses, explains the signal flow and why he made certain decisions about his (almost) all-Tiptop-System.

To find out more about the current line of Tiptop Audio modules come to SUPERBOOTH18 – you can find them here.

Tyler Thompson for WMD @SUPERBOOTH17

WMD did a very nice Gesprächskonzert with their wide range of products at SUPERBOOTH17. Tyler Thompson from WMD is performing a hardware techno session on a modular synthesizer with the new Arpitecht and Chimera modules by WMD. A perfect example of how to use a Gesprächskonzert for the presentation of products in their natural habitat. In this way, the audience can imagine how the products can be effectively used and what they can achieve.

 

Skinnerbox performing @SUPERBOOTH17 – Gesprächskonzert for Endorphin.es

The Endorphin.es Gesprächskonzert by Skinnerbox shows how easy and effective an Endorphin.es Shuttle System can be used on stage and what makes it special. “Playing live electronic music should be fun”, therefor the auto-tuning functionality of the Shuttle System by Endorphin.es is a very welcomed feature that Endorphin.es recently also released as a standalone module – the Autopilot. The Skinnerbox performance can be seen as one of the more intense Gesprächskonzerte at SUPERBOOTH17.

 

Herman Gillis with his legendary Sherman Filterbank at SUPERBOOTH17

At SUPERBOOTH17 we were given a rare honour: Herman Gillis demonstrated his legendary Sherman Filterbank at SUPERBOOTH17. In 1996, the first prototypes of the Sherman Filterbank came out, the official website states:

“The first Filterbanks that were marketed in 1996 were hand-built, and only 40 pieces were made. These prototypes did not have MIDI. At the same time, the designer Herman Gillis also made 9 Sherman CHAOSBANKS. After a lot of people asked for more Filterbanks and Chaosbanks, Herman decided to update the prototype model of the Filterbank with MIDI and at that time, he added even more features to the box. This is how he came to the one and only MIDI Sherman Filterbank. In 1997, about 500 Sherman Filterbanks were sold, merely in the United Kingdom (London), Belgium, Japan and the Netherlands.” – today there are several versions of the Filterbank 2 available. During this Gesprächskonzert Mr Gillis plays a Sherman Dual Filterbank 2.
His latest release is an even smaller desktop version of it called the Sherman Filterbank 2 compact available from stock in shops all over europe.

 

MFB Gesprächskonzert @SUPERBOOTH17

Gesprächskonzerte are supposed to be product presentations with a concert part that fills at least half of the time. MFB did a very nice job at SUPERBOOTH17, they presented their new products in a very danceable fashion. The Gesprächskonzert showed the new Dominion Club, Nanozwerg Pro, Digital Delay and their well-known drum machines. The whole performance is done entirely with MFB products and shows the wide palette of products they offer these days.

 

 

Video: Darrin Wiener @SchneidersBuero

Herr Schneider invited a special guest to talk about SUPERBOOTH17 and electronic musical instruments. This is Darrin Wiener presenting the eurorack Serge modules from Random*Source. After realising that his Gesprächskonzert at SUPERBOOTH17 was missing the concert part, we decided to catch up on it with this video. In the end there was a lot of talking again – about bananas, marimbas, scales and delays. But there was also some funky music played and Herr Schneider danced!. The Serge modules showed their potential as drum and percussive voices and a broken toilet was discovered in the end. Curious?

 

Ondomo Gesprächskonzert at SUPERBOOTH17

This week we have the Gesprächskonzert by Ondomo for you, a very nice overview and performance. The Ondomo is a unique instrument originally invented in France in the late 1920s. It was known under the name ‘Ondes-Martenot’ and invented by Maurice Martenot. Ondomo is the reincarnation of this instrument.

It features a timbre section that is played by the left hand, as well as the volume. The right hand either plays the keyboard with its physical capability for performing vibrato, or by sliding a metal ring worn on your finger in front of the keyboard. The position of the ring determines the pitch. This method of playing makes it possible to create continuous, sweeping sounds reminiscent of the sound of a Theremin.

The limited run of 100 instruments which inventor Naoyuki Omo has committed to build has already been depleted. But there are plans to build another batch. For more information please visit their website or subscribe to the official Ondomo Newsletter.

Eventide @SUPERBOOTH17

Eventide presented a prototype of a eurorack delay at SUPERBOOTH17. Scince then it hasn’t been seen in the wild but we are looking forward to what promises to be superb eurorack effects modules. The Eventide Gesprächskonzert can be watched below. The video features some words about the C-Base in Berlin, the Karusell-Synthesizer by Schneidersbuero and SUPERBOOTH18. The introductory part gives you an insight of the C-Base, what has already been another a stage for artists like Robert Aiki Lowe and Dieter Doepfer this year, and will be again with SUPERBOOTH18 – as our official aftershow venue. The modular furniture (Karussel) seen here will be available in Munich now for the DigitalAnalog Festival, please search the web for further updates and come back next week.

 

KORG Performance @ SUPERBOOTH17

One of the uncounted real synth concerts and a really smart performance on SUPERBOOTH17 was the Gespraechskonzert  for Korg and Arp in the Cinema (open this link to find their complete 2016-performance, too).
Jörg Sunderkötter – Sound&Recording’s earlier chief editor, on keyboards – and his studio partner Joker Nies – an expert for circuit bending – had some problems to find on stage but then it became like this .. turn it on to listen yourselves, please.
