IO Instruments @SchneidersLaden – workshop video

Despite IO Instruments being quite new to the scene, the whole team has lots of experience in the business, some members have been working for companies like MFB and ACL for example.

IO presented their products at Superbooth 2019 and aim to bring the audio quality of the 500 series modules into eurorack.

This workshop is an introduction to the brand and their first line of modules – lots of excellent sounds in there and some inspiring design choices.


SchneidersLaden presents SUPERBOOTH21

MODULAR BEGINNER WORKSHOP – every Thursday at 6pm

[et_pb_section admin_label=”section”] [et_pb_row admin_label=”row”] [et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text”]Hello modular newbies! SchneidersLaden is holding a Modular Beginner Workshop every Thursday at 6pm – participation is free! Here is what you can expect:
“Our goal is that you can confidently make your own first patch afterwards and have a good time and also meet like-minded people! Although we are nerds we won’t get too technical. Along the way we will show you basic patch techniques, the workings of our showroom, as well as tell you some stories about the history of (modular) synths and the ever evolving Eurocrack scene.
Feel free to come by even if you do not want to participate in the workshop, as the showroom will be open longer on Thursdays and you can get drinks at the bar. Not only when starting out with modular synthesizers this is a nice occasion to get some advice by us or other experienced guests, or share your knowledge with us! Try out some patches and have a drink or two. See you soon! Every Thursday at 6pm at the SchneidersLaden Showroom for a workshop – or every weekday between noon – 7pm.”

The weekly workshops at SchneidersLaden are suitable for musicians, artists and everyone interested in the generation of electronic sounds.

No knowledge required – the workshops are free of charge and open to everyone interested. The idea behind these workshops is to cover basic technical concepts – needed to understand the workings of modular synthesizers and synthesis in general and to enable the participants to make their first own patch and start creating electronic music. The modular synthesizer scene is a vibrant, supportive and creative space where new forms of art are experienced and boundaries of electronic music have been pushed. This new (old) way of creating electronic sounds had to be learned and artists around the globe have shown that it is possible to create a global community that shares ideas, skills and knowledge without focusing on profit. Small centers of encounter and exchange, such as SchneidersLaden in Berlin, played a significant role in this development. Every week Modular Beginner Workshops are held here. The workshops offer the opportunity to overcome the first obstacles on the way to understanding this extraordinary instrument. At the same time, the place offers the possibility of exchange, getting to know each other and making music together.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column] [/et_pb_row] [/et_pb_section]

Genki Instruments Workshop Thursday at SchneidersLaden

The next workshop at SchneidersLaden will take place next Thursday – March 5th / 7:30pm – SchneidersLaden is happy to welcome Genki Instruments for this event.

The Wave can be used as a gestural controller ring that allows you to easily control sound, shape effects and send commands with the motion of your hands. It offers six functions that can be used individually or combined in any way you like: Tilt, Pan, Roll, Vibrato, Tap, Click.

You can use Wave with Softwave, a software layer that allows users to intuitively map movements to MIDI messages or host AU/VST3 plugins. Wave also works as a stand alone MIDI controller that connects to your DAW. Each function can be mapped to control different parameters directly.

The Wavefront module is a Eurorack receiver module for Wave that allows the ring to connect to modular synthesizers. With Wavefront you can completely bypass the computer and bring unprecedented sound control, effect shaping and manipulation to modular setups.

In this workshop the makers of Wave and Wavefront will present what is possible with this unique interface for gestural control.

Here is a little example of the Genki Wave & Wavefront in action:

New workshop series at SchneidersLaden in February and March!

On February 13th SchneidersLaden begins a new workshop series that will run until the end of March. Exciting guests are announced, such as IO Instruments from Berlin, who will open the event series. IO Instruments are a new modular maker with a couple of interesting and affordable new designs, some of them already available.

A week later – February 20th – Jörg Schaaf aka Radikal Technologies will be in Berlin to talk about (and show) his latest synthesizer designs like the Delta Cep A. He is responsible for some modern classic synth designs from Germany – like the Spectralis and Accelerator.

The last workshop in February – on the 27th – is reserved for Frap Tools, who presented their Fumana Filterbank at SchneidersLaden in March 2018. Now, about two years later, they are back with the USTA Sequencer and might also present the resent prototype of Brenso – fingers crossed.

The first workshop in March will be held by Genki Instruments from Iceland – on March 5th! This innovative manufacturer has brought us the Wave and a dedicated eurorack module Wavefront. The combination is an easy and reliable gestural contoller for everyone who is interested in wireless control of his or her synthesizers! This should be an interesting evening!

The 12th of March is reserved for visual artist VanTa. He will show you what he uses to generate graphical extravaganza with modular synthesizers. The focus will be on video synthesizers including modules by LZX Industries that allow your modular synthesizer to generate and process video signals.

March 19th: Michael Menze and 1010 Music will be presenting their eco-system of modules for sound generation, sequencing, effects and sampling.

March 26th: The last event of this workshop series will be by ACL from Berlin. Their Sinfonion module gained a lot of attention and might be the perfect tool to keep larger modular systems in tune. Learn more about this and other amazing modules by ACL in this workshop.


All workshops start at 7:30pm – right after the Modular Beginner Workshop that is on schedule every Thursday at 6pm. Learn more about the modular Beginner Workshop here.

To celebrate the announcement of the next workshop series, SchneidersLaden is releasing the Ableton CV Tools workshop video today. Enjoy!

Please note: Frap Tools USTA Workshop has been cancelled

The Frap Tools USTA Workshop that has been scheduled for tonight sadly has been cancelled for health problems. The decision was not taken lightly. We wish Sacha a good recovery and will try to find a replacement date for the event.

The next workshop at SchneidersLaden will take place next Thursday – SchneidersLaden is happy to welcome Genki Instruments for this event.

Here is the original announcement:

The last workshop date in February is reserved for Frap Tools, who presented their Fumana Filterbank at SchneidersLaden in March 2018. Now, about two years later, they are back with the USTA Sequencer. Sacha Ketterlin will play a short concert centered around the mighty new sequencer by Frap Tools and will talk you through their latest module.

Here is a little example of the USTA sequencing by Sacha Kettelin:

UDO Audio – Super 6 workshop on Dec 5th

UDO Audio will be in Berlin to celebrate the near release of their first synthesizer the Super 6 – to do so they will come to SchneidersLaden for a workshop. This will happen on December 5th – that’s only the second chance to get your hands on one of these machines, the first was SUPERBOOTH19!

The Super 6 is a 12-voice polyphonic, binaural hybrid synthesizer. It is flexible, powerful and refined with a gorgeous analog sound character. Rich and evolving texturescan be easily created via the Super-Wavetable core. Results are shapeable using the binaural analog signal path and the flexible modulation system.

Workshop starts at 7:30pm – participation is free!

A little earlier (at 6pm) SchneidersLaden offers another workshop on Thursday: The Modular Beginner Workshop, it is also free of charge and you learn about the basics of synthesis and all you need to know about modulars. Find out more here.

Ableton CV Tools workshop at SchneidersLaden

This is gonna be a big one: SchneidersLaden and Ableton present a workshop about integrating modular synthesizers with Ableton CV Tools. Abletons Matt Jackson and Iftah from Skinnerbox will be there to teach you how CV Tools works and how it can expand the possibilities of your studio.

Workshop starts at 7:30pm – participation is free!

CV Tools is a Pack of ten devices for Live 10 Suite that generate and receive Pitch, Control, Clock and Trigger CV. Send and modulate CV to and from your modular setup or other CV-based gear and Ableton Live using a compatible dc-coupled audio interface. Use Live as the tempo leader or set it to follow your modular system clock.

Plus, even if you don’t own a modular setup, the Rotating Rhythm Generator and CV Utility devices add modular-style workflow inside Live or to your non-modular hardware setup.

Working in only one domain of electronic musical instruments like modular or software can be limiting over time – but it is easier than ever to break down the boundaries between computers, analog gear, across platforms, old or new technologies. A great opportunity to promote your creativity is the integration of modular synthesizers with your DAW. Ableton will present their tools to integrate your modular with one of the most popular DAWs on this planet.

See you on Thursday 28th of November – 7:30pm at SchneidersLaden.

Jessica introduces the Music Easel, plays some sounds and explains where her great fascination for this instrument comes from.

THIS THURSDAY – Workshop and Performance with VPME!

This week SchneidersLaden starts the new Workshop Series! The first guest will be Vladimir Pantelic aka VPME – creator of the Euclidean Circles and the new Quad Drum Voice. He will be joined by Matze from Instant. We’ll learn more about Vladimirs modules and the ideas behind them.

The Euclidean Circles has found many many fans for being so simple and complex at the same time – six sequences arranged in three LED circles that give you excellent visual reference of what is happening. And the signature element of the Euclidean Circles also made it to the latest VPME module – the Quad Drum Voice. This complex digital module has so much more to offer than it first seems. Each voice can either be a drum synth, wavetable oscillator or sample player and there is a mixer, EQ and compressor built in!

Vladimir will show you what his modules are all about and Matze how they can be used to play them live. Should be fun!

See you at this special workshop – Thursday 7:30pm at SchneidersLaden!

World premiere on Thursday – 7:30pm: polygogo Oscillator by E-RM

E-RM presents their new synthesis method! polygogo, E-RM’s new stereo oscillator module, is based on the specially developed polygonal synthesis, a kind of graphical complex amplitude shaping method. With the help of the built-in modulation sources, polygonal synthesis in polygogo opens up a wide range of sonic possibilities from clicky pinged sequences to unique dark thunderstorms, bass lines, leads and colored noise. Max of E-RM presents the current prototype of polygogo in the workshop from 7:30pm and answers questions about the module

See you on Thursday 11th of April – 7:30pm at SchneidersLaden! And if you are planning to start a modular journey, join us for the Modular Beginner Workshop at 6pm.

Video: Haken Audio & La Voix du Luthier – Onde

Learn about the history and development of one of the most expressive and versatile electronic music instruments around! The Haken Continuum Fingerboard has been around for several years and is still being developed further and further. It gets its expressiveness from the incomparable surface that acts as the user interface and offers real-time continuous control in three dimensions for every finger that is placed on the playing surface!

As well as presenting the Continuum Christophe brought a special speaker with him, to give us the very rare chance to hear the La Voix du Luthier Onde – this exceptional approach to the construction of a speaker. There is no traditional speaker cone inside, only acoustic exciters transmitting the vibration into the wood. It is the same principle as for a guitar: the strings themselves make very little sound, but they are transmitting their vibrations to the soundboard through the bridge, and what you hear is the sonic amplification via the soundboard. In case of the Onde the exciter is acting as the bridge and transmits the electric “vibrations” to the wood. The Onde gives you a very immersive sound and the chance to experience electronic sound sources in a totally new way.

This incredible sound can hardly be recorded – so make sure to come to SUPERBOOTH19 to get another chance!

Workshop with Instruō! Thursday 4th of April – 7:30pm

Join us for a special workshop with Jason Lim from Instruō !

Instruō is a manufacturer of innovative euroack modular designs with a unique appearance. The most special module in the portfolio of Instruō might be the Scíon – it is composed of a biofeedback sensor and a quad random CV generator. The module can be used to transform data obtained from plants and other organisms into music. In short: You can finally jam with your favorite cactus! For more predictable compositions there is the very capable Harmonàig quantizer. And if you are into complex VCOs, Instruō provides you with an extra complex complex VCO named Cš-L.

But this will not be a product show, we’ll here some live music with these fine modules talk about the philosophy of Instruō and you’ll get the chance ask all the questions you ever had about Jasons modules.

See you on Thursday 4th of April – 7:30pm at SchneidersLaden! And if you are only about to start your modular journey, join us for the Modular Beginner Workshop at 6pm.

THURSDAY: Haken Audio & La Voix du Luthier – Onde // Workshop at SchneidersLaden

Learn about the history and development of one of the most expressive and versatile electronic music instruments around! The Haken Continuum Fingerboard has been around for several years and is still being developed further and further. The heart of this unique instrument is a digital EaganMatrix – based on the principles of the patch-matrix of synthesizers like Arp 2500 and EMS Synthi 100. And it gets its expressiveness from the incomparable surface that acts as the user interface and offers realtime continuous control in three dimensions for every finger that is placed on the playing surface! As well as presenting the Continuum there will be a very rare chance to hear the La Voix du Luthier Onde! With this exceptional approach to the construction of a speaker, the sound directly comes from the vibrations of the 2 soundboards. There is no traditional speaker cone inside, only acoustic exciters transmitting the vibration into the wood. It is the same principle as for a guitar: the strings themselves make very little sound, but they are transmitting their vibrations to the soundboard through the bridge, and what you hear is the sonic amplification via the soundboard. In case of the Onde the exciter is acting as the bridge and transmits the electric “vibrations” to the wood. The Onde gives you a very dispersive and immersive sound and the chance to experience electronic sound sources in a totally new way. This incredible sound can hardly be recorded – so make sure to come to the workshop to get an accurate impression of the Onde!

No registration needed, the event is free.

THURSDAY – March 14th – 7.30pm @SchneidersLaden

Workshop: Looking at Raster.Labor with Frank Bretschneider

Raster.Labor is an installation project by Raster.Media. Premiered at the CTM Festival a couple of weeks ago we took the chance to bring this great project to SchneidersLaden and explore the ideas behind it with one of the creators – Frank Bretschneider. During the planning stages of the installations Frank discussed some different approaches for the central machine of all five installations with us. The beating heart on all five tables was a modular synthesizer, providing control voltages for other modules and other things producing sound and forming the individual parts of each installation.

Raster.Labor explores “artistic processes, and how they diverge and develop from the same starting point or set of conditions. Five tables with minimal Eurorack setups and a handful of studio monitors form the basis of the piece. The analogue hardware generates and manipulates control voltages, forming a framework in which the artists can complete, connect, and interact with the modules. As the setup does not contain any sound producing components, participating artists will select sound sources themselves, which could range from minuscule to gargantuan sonic objects. They may choose to mechanically generate sound, or to integrate microphones and amplify sound. 

Generative composition, whether through regulating sonic events or strategic compositional decisions, has been a key part of electronic music’s history. Labor references both academic and DIY histories of analogue synthesis, exploring open and dynamic fields of hardware experimentation. The intention of the setup is to enable interested audience members to directly observe cause and effect, so digital software will be avoided.

Raster.Labor with Frank Bretschneider, Byetone + Mieko Suzuki, Grischa Lichtenberger, Robert Lippok, Dasha Rush was on display at nGbK, Oranienstr. 25, 10999 berlin from jan 25 until feb 03. 2019.

 

Join us on Thursday 14. February for this special lecture and workshop with Frank Bretschneider – start at 7:30 pm!

Workshop and Performance: Blush Response // February 21st // 7:30pm

For the second workshop in our first workshop series in 2019 we invited an artist who is known for his uncompromising, hard sound. Blush Response is Joey Blush, Berlin Based Cuban-American artist and sound designer, who’s music is characterized by a modular synth heavy approach to sound design, combining rough, glitch-heavy beats with thick, distorted synths to create a sound that blurs the lines between Industrial, EBM and Techno. Yummie.

Blush cut his teeth doing programming work for artists such as Fear Factory, Rhys Fulber, Cristian Castro, and as a touring member of Joey Jordison (Slipknot)’s alternative rock project Scar the Martyr. Check out his music here:

 

In this workshop we’ll not only hear some sounds from his machines, Blush Response will also tell us about his live set and work in general.

We hope to see you at the workshop – come and learn from someone who knows his craft.

Workshop Videos! FRAP TOOLS / XAOC / VERMONA

Before we start the next series of workshops at SchneidersLaden, we owe you a documentation of past events – that’s what we share with you today! Below you will find three previously unpublished videos of the 2018 workshops. We start with the workshop by XAOC Devices, who are going in depth about their most mysterious, yet so powerful module – the Drezno! This video can be seen as a tutorial to the creative use of analog to digital conversion. During the last part of this video they also talk about their upcoming mega-VCO – the Odessa!

The second video is the workshop by Tom Körting presenting the Vermona module line. The small manufacturer of high-quality electronic instruments has a number of products in its portfolio, whose special features only become apparent at second glance – Tom puts them in the spotlight and gives many helpful tips and hints, which you should try out when working with these and other modules!

The third video is from the workshop with the italian manufacturer of eurorack modules – Frap Tools. Their latest module release Falistri is not yet covered in this video, but the almighty Fumana filter-bank is! Watch this video to learn more about the complex structure of this module, how to use it and what makes this module so special.

XAOC Devices


Maciek, Marcin and Tomek from Xaoc Devices were so kind to explain their more sophisticated modules to us. What initially looks like a lecture at university, is actually a quick and very good explanation of the huge and often overlooked possibilities of their Drezno and Lipsk modules. Those two go to the heart of digital-to-analog conversion (and the other way round) and are therefore perfect examples of what makes modular synthesizers interesting in the first place! You can go as deep into the shaping of sounds and modulations as possible! At the end of the workshop they also talked about their first VCO module – Odessa, an additive oscillator with great potential.

Vermona


Tom Körting presented the Vermona Modular line for us in a workshop – with the twinCussion, fourMulator, quadroPOL, twinVCFilter and fourMative CONTOURS. He explores sonic and rhythmical possibilities and explains some tricks from his studio work with these fine modules. Beware: You might learn something!

Frap Tools


Simone Fabbri from Frap Tools gave this wonderful workshop on his mighty Fumana filter-bank module in 2018. We also learn about the history of the company, how it all started and where the ideas for their modules came from. From an early modular-case-prototype to the complex filter-bank Fumana – Frap Tools has established itself as a high quality modular brand a short time.

 

We hope to see you soon at SchneidersLaden. Don’t buy crap!

Bernhard Rasinger / BR Laser – Performance at SchneidersLaden

Bernhard Rasingers played this impressive laser show on the terrace outside SchneidersLaden in late summer 2018. The CV-controllable laser is moving in relation to the what you hear. Audio and laser present themselves as a complex whole. After this performance Bernhard gave a workshop about what he is doing how that works. The idea behind this and all other workshops at SchneidersLaden is to give insights into the work of manufacturers and artists that you would not find on any website or magazine. So this was the perfect occasion for our guests (and ourselves) to learn more about the interaction of audio, control voltage and lasers – an exciting niche in the field of audiovisual performances.

 

Video: KITMUN – live performance at SchneidersLaden

Kitmun is a Berlin based duo of modular music and video artists. They play electronic music ranging from ambient to techno and combine this with live visuals from a dedicated eurorack synthesizer. Both, visuals and music are all created live on the spot and are therefor unique to the specific event and performance.

Kitmun played this exceptional performance for our guests at SchneidersLaden and afterwards talked about their workflow, setup, gear and everything else that is important if you plan to do modular live music.

The evening came to an end on the terrace at SchneidersLaden after hours of conversation and some drinks with the very interested audience.

We want to thank everyone for coming and hope to see you soon again at one of our weekly workshops or during the opening hours of the SchneidersLaden showrooms.

Modular Synthesizer Ensemble workshop with Gammon at Ernst Krenek Forum

In January 2019 the Modular Synthesizer Ensemble will again be a guest at the Ernst Krenek Forum. Due to the great demand last year, there will be 5 workshops this time.
3 of them with school classes from Krems, 2 workshops will be offered for registration.

The Modular Synthesizer makes analog synthesis tangible and easy to understand. It opens up a wide range of sound possibilities and an intuitive and creative approach to electronic music.
The Modular Synthesizer Ensemble consists of a fixed set of twelve Modular Synthesizers. Led by Gammon, a musician and music mediator who has been working with synthesizers since the 1990s, the one-day workshop gives participants a deep insight into the work with modular synthesizers: they experiment, improvise and develop sounds, noises and sequences for their own compositions.

REGISTRATION IS OPEN UNTIL JANUARY 9th! more info here.

Here is an example of one of the Modular  Synthesizer Ensemble workshops at SUPERBOOTH18:

 

Nicolas Bougaïeff – live performance for Endorphin.es

This evening is dedicated to Endorphin.es – not that stuff in your brain that makes you happy, but the modules between your fingers that make you happy. The manufacturer of eurorack modules (with perhaps the most unusual panel designs) presents a live performance by Nicolas Bougaïeff with devices from Endorphin.es. After the performance Nicolas will be there to answer your questions.

November 29th – starting at 7:30pm

And if you are just starting your modular journey or simply want to know what the hell I’m talking about -> join our Modular Synthesizer Beginner Workshops! -> Every Thursday 6pm at SchneidersLaden!

Sacha Ketterlin performing live at SchneidersLaden

On November 22nd, Sacha Ketterlin from the Higher Resonance label will show what it can be like to massage your brain with a modular synthesizer consisting mainly of Macbeth Series X modules (see picture below) – an atmospheric and intense ambient performance is to be expected.

MaxPowerPHOTO_SACHA_KETTERLIN_System_s

Sacha Ketterlin has been building his instrument for many years. His focus is on the careful compilation of modules for the perfect analog sound and to make as few trade-offs as possible in order to bring it to the stage. Especially during his ambient performances you can really feel the quality of the sounds, here no sacrifices are made. Chords don’t come from samplers or digital modules, but from precisely tuned Macbeth oscillators – you can hear the difference.

Vermona Workshop with Tom Körting at SchneidersLaden // Nov 15th

On November 15th Tom Körting shows what can be done with the fine modules made by Vermona. After having some more performance oriented Thursday during the last weeks, this workshop will be a bit more technical an in-depth. As a developer and manufacturer of synthesizers and effects units Vermona has shown for years already that they can offer uncompromisingly high quality, innovative concepts in their developments again and again. As a proof – have a look at the new fourMative Contour, an ultra-flexible envelope modulation generator that has just been released. But also classics like the fourMulator still manage to tickle creative impulses. Tobi Neumenann also reported on this at his workshop in SchneidersLaden. For this workshop expect some in-depth look at the Vermona modules and musical examples of what can be done with them.
