To solder yourself a little synth may be an interesting experience for electronic musicians: Leaf Audio will realize another of their DIY workshops where you can learn such inside the KRAKE festival on the afternoon of July, 30st – Saturday. 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.
In 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.
Mutable Instruments added a few visions to
their existing catalogue of eurorack modules yesterday. All of them will be available ex Schneidersladen soon, all of them can be ordered formless per mail now or from our onlineshop probably mid next week. There will be Clouds, a granular audio processor, Elements, a synth voice, Shelves, a parametric EQ and a two channel dynamic processor called Streams.
.. is not on facebook and a bit weird at the time … Sonic State made this interview once they was visiting berlin and I was surprised myself, what I am telling there. Its a lot about our friends making stuff and some things about personal history and .. some good sounds on the modular in the end. Thank you Edd.
A single Studio electronics code (4voice) is on sale now at Session Music Frankfurt: Even if there is no CS80 Filter mounted (you could have up to four different analogue hardware filter cards per voice, two ones are included) it can be read from the display (see pic). IF you want the CS80, its an option. If you can accept this and you want a Code NOW, buy it in Frankfurt!
In a nice chat on the phone Mr. Ken Macbeth confirmed today that his next future product – the elements – is becoming more concrete soon. He released a few videos on his Video-Channel showing him playing around and having much fun with the final prototype; First shipments should happen before christmas (!!).
In his video collection I also found this long clip explaining the possibillities of a Micromac-D, but .. as an experienced keyboard player he is explaining his performance in a way that even if you dont wish to buy it – watch it to learn more about the possibilities and sounds of such an analogue synth in general, thank you Ken!
Thomas K. – product specialist for modulars at SchneidersLaden – will start with the first issue of a series for (absolute) modular beginners workshops this Friday, the 13th of june.
In order to prevent the usual yet confusing patch noodling orgies we put a small yet flexible system in the center. With that as a basis we will approach the very basics of patching techniques, integration with external devices and (later on) unconventional ways of getting a sound out of this box.
Workshop is limited to 10 participants and will start at 6pm (until 8pm).
First come, first serve – please make your reservation directly to email@example.com now.
The outstanding tube-based Metasonix D-1000 Drummachine is out of production now!

The very little Anode Meeblip Synthesizer module that has been introduced in Frankfurt will need a bit more time. A very first shipment is coming soon, please calculate the first units ex berlin for week #21/ around May, 23rd.
