NAMM 17 – Doepfer

IMG_4757The inventor and most classical eurorack brand Doepfer now released their version of a mixing desk inside the system in a definitely modular form. Plenty of their modules are also available now as a so called vintage version in black so they are getting back to the classical shine of a (moog-style) modular taking it to the complex possibilities of nowadays modulars. The existing Doepfer products in silver aluminium are classical themselves in between, still built in a very high quality for mostly very affordable prices.

The earlier combination of A-138-O/A-138-P as a simple four- to sixteen-channel Mixer can very soon be expanded by the A-135-4-A/B/C to have the 4 to 16 channels added with CV-controlled AUX, PAN, LEVEL and MUTE parameters. The modular component 135-4C is a four channel envelope follower opening a new horizont of level control in eurorack systems. Apart from this, Doepfer was presenting the comeback of their high end VCO that had to be discontinued once their curtis chips was no longer available (as far as I know). Now the “new” A-111-2 is available in a wide and a very small version, see all details shown by Patrick Detampel in this Video:

NAMM2017 started today

IMG_4738.. and there are plenty of modular manufacturers getting together again. Elektron released an update on their drummachine in a new casing, Pittsburgh shows his passion for slotmachines and Harvestman is offering a huge synth together with Malekko? This is just the little impression that I got from yesterdays look down thru the links on twitter. The biggest news today will be the funny new president (sorry, not funny) but still there will be other news n stuff to be shown over here in pictures and links… btw we learned to make pictures available in big again, so please feel free to just clic on the small ones..
lets make truth big again?

IMG_0468Running around on NAMM there are Carlo Krug, Sebastian Baumann and Henning Schonvogel for SchneidersLaden with the job to buy. For the Alex4 distribution company there are Rene Margraff and Jan Mueller with the job to sell, there are plenty of manufacturers themselves around them with the passion to play and finally there is Patrick Detampel with the passion to explain.
So if you have questions regarding the upcoming SUPERBOOTH17 end of april probably Patrick could help you best.

Please have a good time all together, be a peaceful and constructive community to get together again very soon here in berlin, europe for a warm welcome of our spring. I am very much looking forward to welcome YOU on board making the wonderful ride on the river again. And there is plenty of other reasons to participate again.
With warmest regards, HerrSchneider, Berlin
