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

thank you..

2016 was a wonderful year, we had a very good time with each other, a good mood in the company and many nice private moments. The world is going crazy and many people are anxious of the future but first of all I would like to say thank you for the past and even more for the present. We are at the lucky end of the world and we should share a bit more carefully the goods we have keeping a respectful relation with those who are not that lucky now and in the future.

I am very much looking forward to another great meeting on 2017s SUPERBOOTH to also talk about such with you and yours. I hope to meet you all up again soon wishing you a good start into 2017.
with warmest regards from all of us,

SchneidersLaden, Alex4 distribution and SUPERBOOTH17

the truth and the real one..

modeldsNext to our Minimoog demo in the showroom Berlin, we have placed and original Minimoog with an extra portion of patina and the smell of 40 years of stage carreer. Please be very careful comparing the original with the remake.

Personally I still wonder that people go for such an expensive remake when there are so many interesting new possibilities to make music in the market, but thinking further  .. in the end .. playing a keyboard on an ipad? .. no.

Modular Promotions

dsc_0034To explain the idea of modulars and let more people understand the possibilities of such instruments to make music, to learn about maths, frequencies sounds and moods over low voltages and to meet old and new friends we are often on the roads in europe visiting festivals, synth meetings, musical instrument shows and other retail stores over years already.
Yesterday evening I stood in the berlin based schneidersLaden showroom and reflected that at the same time Patrick Detampel is on his way to Munich to explain the latest news of the Doepfer black magic there while Holger Zapf is on the ferry to the UK to explain the source of eurorack on two festivals this weekend. So if you would like to learn more about what we do over here dont hesitate to ask for help, we could be around.

Next Workshop at SchneidersLaden: (?) Dec, 1st or 8th
Workshops in Munich (bei Just Music)  .. and learn
more about Analogue Systems in the UK on the
sines and squares festival in Manchester now.

Friday afternoon..

After his gig in Berlin Jean-Michel Jarre visited our showoroom in SchneidersLaden and met Boris Blank from the Band Yello here. Boris was looking for some modulars picking up a black Doepfer System and the TomOberheim Twovoice Synth for his shows in Berlins Kraftwerk.

Beginner’s workshop w/ Livestockelectronics

livestock This month’s Beginners Workshop is a special edition! Besides introducing you to the basics of patching a modular synth we are also joined by the lovely people of LIVESTOCKELECTRONICS, a new manufacturer from the Netherlands we are sure you will hear from in the future.
They will bring a bunch of their new modules – among these a superinteresting sequencer called shepard,  a performance router / mixer called maze and some ultra-useful utilities.

Although we are all nerds here we won’t get too technical.  Along the way we will show you basic patch techniques as well as tell you some anecdotes about the history of (modular) synths plus some insights into the module manufacturing business!

Workshop starts 6pm | In our showroom at Kotti above Kaiser’s supermarket (ring at: schneidersladen) | The workshop is limited to 15 participants. Please register under tc@schneidersladen.de (Thomas)

Promotions & Workshops

20150924_182836Camillo Ocampo made another constructive workshop teaching basic modulars on Analogue Systems and Doepfers mixed eurorack systems last week at SchneidersLaden.

Dates and happenings like this are quite en vogue at the time worldwide, so .. as a rep for the Doepfer Distribution Patrick Detampel is currently in Barcelona on the modular day showing the AJH synth, Doepfer and Vermona modulars in general.

Next week you could meet him in Budapest, Hungary on the Budapest Music Expo (Oct., 2nd til 4th) with a big Doepfer System, his Verbos Case and many more stuff around. On that event you will also be able to see the RS8000 by Analogue Systems combined with a french connection.

For the american friends of EUROrack Patrick D. will be on machines in music in NYC/Brooklyn (Oct., 17th-18th) to show his Subharmonic Groovebox by Doepfer together with the E-RM Multiclock, AJH, Vermona and the Endorphin.es.  So far for now?

Richard Devine ..

.. was visiting SchneidersLaden once he was doing a liveset at Berghain a few weeks ago (was great, thank you) and he made a picture of our entrance with this little detail that I never noticed – so far, thank you for showing me, richard.  Apart from that, we had a short chat about Christian Günthers Delay and the new REON Drift box that he took home in the end.

Merry Christmas ..

Wishing you all a merry christmas and a good time we left SchneidersLaden behind us for a few days. On Monday we will stay closed for inventory and just on Tuesday December 30st, you will have the very last chance to get this and that from us in the old year. Worst case we wish you a good start into 2015 already now and see you again January 5th the earliest once we will be open to public again. With warm regards from rainy Berlin,
HerrSchneider and Friends

Aphex Twin hats auch ..

aphex-modular-trax.. wir wollen es gerne verkaufen:
Das funktionierende Buchla 200e System aus der Demo in Schneidersladen steht zur Disposition, Module kommen eh nicht nach und der Easel stockt auch. Also: Ran an die Buletten, ausprobieren kostet noch nichts, danach wirds teuer,  Zum Preis erwarten wir akzeptable Vorschläge, Umsonst wirds leider nix!
Umsonst gabs offensichtlich mal die Tracks von Aphex Twin, die er wohl auch auf diesem Modulsystem gemacht hat, das war natürlich nicht umsonst! Aber wer weiss.
Fast umsonst gibts grad das ein oder andere Schnäppchen auf dieser Liste in Schneidersladen, weil wir zum Jahresende das sonst alles zählen müssen,  .. Zahlen statt Zählen? .. Danke für die Entlastung und Euch allen ein frohes und besinnliches Weihnachtsfest.

NEW Modules by Doepfer ..

Tomorrow Friday, 5th after 6pm Thomas K. will make another modular workshop at SchneidersLaden showing and introducing several smaller systems including the most prototypes of the brandnew Doepfer  A-100 modules to be released on the upcoming NAMM show in January. If you want to be informed about these updates, if you think about starting another small project with a modular system, register for a place in tomorrows workshop with a simple email to Thomas K., its free and we will have a beer, coffee or a water included.

The workshop will probably be done in time to still be able to see the gig as follows..

NOT EVEN THIS..

img_2959-2Yes: I am not on facebook, and I am not on Linkedn and I am not using ableton live nor iphones, ipads or paypal, it seems like I am an ignorant oldschool arsehole, I am sorry. Please forgive me, sometimes I blog twitter.

WE ARE NOT ON FACEBOOK!

Even if it looks like it over here, nothing has changed with this: WE are not on facebook as Schneidersladen nor as anything else. If YOU made that page called Schneidersladen on Facebook, please get back to ME before somebody else will clear this up. The content does not make sense to our clients nor to us, it is mostly historical or leading to less competent points on the interne than the REAL Schneidersladen. Thank you for understanding.

NEXT MOVE IBIZA:

_MG_8439_0217_klOn Thursday (September, 24th)  the DJ convention Dancefair will start for the very first time on the island Ibiza. Apart from “DJ companies” like Roland, the SAE and others some more attraktive hardware units by Doepfer, Vermona, Sherman, Koma, MFB and Manikin will be shown by Philipp and Franz from Schneidersladen on behalf of SchneidersBuero, Berlin. So if you are around have some fun and make some sunny sounds with them. Enjoy.

Another workshop @ SL, now !

workshoppic1Especially for  new customers we will have a workshop again just on and about a eurorack starter system for lower 1500 EUROn July, 18th (2014)- next Friday – our product specialist Thomas K. will share his knowledge about such with you (once you confirmed your participation). The workshop is limited to seven people and will start once the showroom closed at 6pm. To make your first own patch and have a good time, please calculate with roundabout two to three hours time and send your confimation to tc@schneidersladen directly now.

Dont read this !

HerrSchneiderIf you want to know why I (HerrSchneider) am not reading forums, waste your time with reading this: A missing package for an italian customer has been delivered to the adress that this customer gave us as his valid invoice adress together with the order. The separate and different shipping adress has been overseen by us, we are very sorry for this mistake. We tried to get the package back to correct our mistake, but the recipient was not available for us.
The person that signed the receipt at this adress (where the customer does not know anybody anymore (as he declared clearly)) could have been clearly identified as the mother of our customer with a second package that luckily has been sent by our MD Mister Sebastian Baumann afterwards. Good idea! 
If my mom has signed for a package that was for me, she is giving it to me or she calls me, so I dont need it a second time and would be more happy with getting the money back, yes – I figured out, Mister B. but we are different!

Friday 13th: for starters

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 tc@schneidersladen.de now.

Americans Distribution..

Boomstar_ausschnittAs a few other americans also, studio electronics aka makers of big and good analogue synths could not trust the germans as their general european distribution so they now signed a new partner called msl pro from the uk for such. Cause the prices of their products will probably increase a bit, I thought to let you know that we still have boomstars in most versions at Schneidersladen.  Good synths!

NEW centralmusic

Centralmusic_stageWe had a wonderful night with the re-opening of Centralmusic on Oranienstrasse 188 in Berlin Kreuzberg. Mark Verbos and Christian Zollner made a great set (see them on the pic) followed by a short but great introduction of the Meeblip synthesizer by Peter Kirn; finally Jeffrey Vallier introduced the WLAN card for the Buchla Music Easel. Wolfgang Seidel unfortunately arrived too late after his first live performance with one of the very first Easels that arrived last week and Antony H made this picture, thank you all.

Musikmesse Aftershow 2/2

Centralmusic_KarrussellTonite in Kreuzbergs Oranienstrasse (#188!) we will have a workshop with Mark Verbos from New York introducing his eurorack products at around 8pm, this will be held in english. Then there will be a session with either Peter Kirn presenting his Meeblip synth and/or the Koma boys performing their pedals and Kommanders. Still before 10pm we will have a second rare introduction where Christian Halten will introduce his W-Lan interface for the Buchla Music Easel together with the chief technician from Buchla responsible for their production site. As on Musikmesse Mister MFB junior (the Tanzbär !) will take care for some drinks and good fun as we will do ourselves.

Pittsburger Togo!

P1080497The compact Pittsburg System 1 has been a good idea for starters by that symphatic young manufacturer Richard Nicol from Pittsburg. Finally now – about a half a year later – they came in and invite you to add another small halfmodular synth (the synthblock) with midi and out and more in a modular case to your  synth park for camparable low money now. You can also add further modules of nearly any kind in such a compact case if you are ready to find your own wooden side panels or other solutions (as seen in the pic).

Ohwiegajelisdasdenn?

Morgen in der Domstadt Köln: Hier die sehenswerte Videoeinführung für Rheinländer und andere Anrheiner wie rheinische Fro-Naturen wahrscheinlich geschnitten von Rainer? ..!

P1090298Even 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. ..
