Livewire AFG’s and Frequensteiner are back

It’s been a while since you could buy a new Audio Frequency Generator by Livewire from a shop – two or three years ago there were a few on the market – since then (and long time before that) you had to be (very) lucky to find one on the used market. Now it is back! Preorder yours here.

The Audio Frequency Generator (AFG) is one of the most comprehensive VCOs in Eurorack format. It is a massive VCO with interesting features like the complex “harmonic animation” section. It provides an enormous variety of waveforms and timbres and allows extensive modulations. And it is designed with expandability in mind – there will be modules which are intended to further expand upon the AFGs sound shaping capabilities!

And more good news: Also the Livewire Frequensteiner will be re-stocked. HerrSchneiders favorite filter is still one of the best filters for that classic acid sounds and it offers one of the nicest band-pass modes on the market. Get yours here!

A eurorack legend is back – The Frequensteiner

Pure acid, liquid resonance and lots of character – these are some of the attributes the Livewire Frequensteiner can be described with and it is a living legend – not often available and owners tend to hold on to these modules. BUT SchneidersLaden will get some of these special filters soon – so all you have to do is to head over to schneidersladen.com to pre-order.

The Frequensteiner has a unique sound especially the band-pass mode is known to impress. It has a liquid resonance that has not been found in any other eurorack filter so far – a truly unmatched sound with lots of fans around the world. Its origins lie in the Steiner Parker Synthasystem and it is a little diva, but those who have played and heard the FrequenSteiner will understand why this filter has such a legendary status – the overall sound, the juicy resonance and its unbelievable character.



Livewire chaos computer

Indeed Livewire is working on a real production series of their unbelievable chaos computer now. Together with the Voltage Mechanic and Voltage Distributor the first production run of all the three should be done around april, we are looking forward to this but as usual it could become a bit delayed (!).

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).
