Morgen in der Domstadt Köln: Hier die sehenswerte Videoeinführung für Rheinländer und andere Anrheiner wie rheinische Fro-Naturen wahrscheinlich geschnitten von Rainer? ..!
Even more fun on modulars you can have inside Music store cologne until October 24th now; next Thursday. Today we installed our Karussell with four mixed modular systems, a pure Doepfer A-100 box and the Macbeth Micromac-D. Now you re invited to perform it all day long. If you have questions please talk with the staff, they are very nice and will try their best to help you. ..
We was in Vienna performing the modular karussell during the Moozak Festival, it was a nice time, see a first short video impression here, please.
No, its not about the well known CCC, but there is another happy client now running a modular system including the Chaos Computer, a module by livewire. On his Blog “electricmusicfox” he released a feedback, review and a second try of a manual of this unfortunately very last work of our dear friend Mike Brown, who sadly passed away. So please read this to understand it better now.
Towards new adventures we finally gave up the London showroom that we called the “testsalon” inside Rough Trade East.
After our friend Martin made it for awhile and finally Simon Lynch held a few brilliant workshops for newbees and runaways there – we thought its enough for now and time for a change again.
So please dont be sad once you dont see the nicely enlightened cabin there anymore, other new places will pop up soon. Heres some London videos on what we did there once and heres the video on what we will do with all the modules right now..
(further news to follow up soon).

On a DJ&Producer meeting in Dortmund (west germany) HerrSchneider and Patrick Detampel will present a bunch of modular systems, Synthesizers and other hardware devices to make electronic sounds and music on.
Starter Systems, Doepfer A-100, MFB-News as well as a buchla Skylab will be shown and can be played by visitors with our help. Its just for one day, so .. lets make some noise and dont miss this, NRW!
.. are cheaper than expected sometimes .. please be aware of this information if you order from outside the EC.
Studio Electronics will finally be able to release their boomstar soon. The desktop version of a monosynth will probably top the sounds of a moog minitaur still being in competion with Ken Macbeths little Micromac, that will also be coming soon in two versions.
The Doepfer-compatible rackversion (Micromac-R) will probably be available still in August as promised, while the cased Micromac-Desktop unit (including the Kenton Midi Interface) will unfortunately take a bit longer. So .. if you want to have one of em in time, make your choice soon and let us know about it.
(NAMM 2012/1) It really started with Mr Ken Macbeth at seven oclock in the morning for breakfast this year: He showed us his latest prototype of the tiny little synth he made that has already been copied by Moog as the „Minosaurus“… so it looks like americans are becoming a bit more chinese now.
He also showed me a board that could become a prominent 5U synth for the moonmodular/dotcom systems another even better minimoog .. would be nice and we will see. First of all we will get in more dual VCOs for the eurorack to be sold together with his dual envelope and his dual SV Filter, that we already stock.
It sounds good if my dear friend Mister Ken Macbeth from Scotland promises even more of his eurorack modules but it is a pain for us if clients dont trust in us anymore, that these will ever come. Indeed this is the very last way to remind him, that he already told about a “shipment in two weeks” before we left for a summer holiday (once).
Our old friend Ken Macbeth finally now showed off his new visions of big modulars on the NAMM. After having announced them for our stand in Frankfurt two years ago already I am a bit shy to offer them for pre reservations already, still I would like very much seeing them in Frankfurt also, even if they are just prototypes still – who knows.
And by the way as Ken Macbeth is a good old friend of mine I kindly ask to forgive him, that also the single oscillators for the doepfer compatible 3U systems could not yet come in after having been announced for December 1st. There was problems with the front plates as I heard but these ones will be seen in Frankfurt for sure – I HOPE!
Our dear friend ken macbeth informed us about his new single oscillator mid last year, we ordered a lot of them immediately and they should have been here on december, 1st 2010. After december is gone now, we feel free to let you know about another brilliant product, that nobody ever has seen in real – so far. Hope dies last and so please feel free to give us your formless reservation, we will get back to you as soon as it will be coming in once.
If you see the website of our dear friend Ken Macbeth from scotland, you could think that 5 rackspace big modular units can be ordered right now, .. if you search the web, you could find his visions of a brilliant new little synth or a new little oscillator and good music, but .. as long as we dont have them, we stay unable to sell them to you!
Right now we are waiting for the very last few models of his brilliant dual oscillators and some few backend filters that will be sold very soon, but .. as soon as we will get a reliable sign, we will let you know, whats coming next to offer you a good place on our waitting lists !! thank you for your patience.
After a few months of more important private issues Ken Macbeth now sent again some dual oscillators and the first bunch of the brilliant backendfilters that has been announced in his workshop november 2009 to come next week. So if you ordered already, thank you for your patience, if you did not you better do it now.
The first filmish impression on our workshop with Ken Macbeth last week is online now! The second workshop around the famous Haken continuum controller tomorrow is not yet fully booked, youre welcome to share if youre around.
.. could give you an impression on the first workshop we had in Schneidersladen; thank you, Nav.
.. and a wonderful early evening we had with Ken Macbeth in Schneidersladen tonight. Ken Macbeth showed off his backend filter, the prototype of the X-factor keyboard and explained his ideas with the famous X-series dual oscillator. We also heard some music and interesting details on spare parts as used in analogue circuitries and business experiences about good and bad times in life. Thank you, ken. Mrs. Niamh Guckian filmed this nice event and will release some parts of that material for you soon.
Ken Macbeth became one of the most prominent engineers and builders of real analogue hardware in modern times. Apart from his selfunderstanding as a musician he was making brilliant hardware as an engineer for other companies before he started to realize his early dreams as a keyboard player in a rock band.
The M3X Synthesizer was the kickoff for his own company but became a mess for him because of his unexperienced start in business and distribution. After the Moroco he made the M5 and finally had a goal with good sales on a good synth and worldwide interest.
At the time he is introducing the most advanced oscillators for the prominent eurorack modular system also to re-generate the original sound of old moogs with his range of quality products. His ideas for analogue keyboard synthesizers are not dead b.t.w., they just sleep, but .. ask him yourself:
To participate this evening, please send your mail to email@example.com and arrive to Schneidersladen on 3.12. til 6 pm.
Schneidersladen, Am Kottbusser Tor Berlin, 3.12. 18h – 20h +X, 10 EUR p.P.
..in an even newer quality class for the small system will be available very soon: By Synthesis Technologies better known as MOTM there will be two models, the first one is called cloud generator to come end of September. The other one is the biggest ship ever seen as a double hiQ VCO with an integrated better ringmod (as in an EMS) and big knobs as expected coming from Macbeth studiosystems, the Xseries VCO. First some of them will be in stock this week, on demo next wednesday, more will come in soon.
The most expensive module for the 3 rackspace eurorack system will be Ken Macbeths X-Factor dual Oscillator so far. It will be coming in to ship from here finally next week !!! With two high quality VCOs and the wonderful ringmod based on an AD633 that sounds like a VCS3 – indeed – is needs half of a 19″ rack 3 rackspace frame for just this. The haptical space is brilliant and the quality of the controls helps you to decide for it after you could once put your hands on it. Still it is a lot of money but after you also bought the other half of the truth, selling your old minimoog, you will know about it? Check it out yourself, we will keep one for this.
Mister Ken Macbeth himself came over today presenting his really existing wonderful new dual X-series oscillator for the 3 rackspace modular system. It will not take long time anymore that the first units will be coming in to be sold. The frequency of both oscillators can be changed over a ten turn rounds pot as he made it in his earlier product M3X what was a brilliant idea for FM and modulations. Included there is a brilliant ringmodulator and noise and it is really two outstanding oscillators combined in a very smart way being made to play! The price is comparable to the size but it was much fun to put our hands on it!
There will be a second module in the same size very soon being a brilliant Filter including envelopes and VCAs. The combination of both as we had it in our showroom today is something comparable with a real minimoog ! .. even better! Reservations/your orders for an Oscillator will be accepted from now on the filter will need a few more weeks.
Finally I trust in Ken Macbeth making it real now: After different plans for keyboard synthesizers such as the X-Factor changing into concrete Minimooglike-filtermodules pricing discussions now our big friend from scotland is making a dual oscillator for the 3 rackspace system! Finally today we ordered some in silver and a very limited number of black ones that will be just sold from here for very special friends. The retail is 1249 EUR, street price in Europe will be around 1199 including VAT, formless orders can be placed from now on, the shipping date stays unclear but it will happen this summer !!
Mr Ken Macbeth from scotland is on the way to release some modules in the bigger five rackspace system. Some first pictures reminded on the famous minimoog, the sound quality of his earlier product has always been brilliant and so .. we are looking forward seeing them. Unfortunately the first prototypes are sometimes far away from the serial production in the timeline, so do not get nervous.
We will let you know, when they will be coming true.
