A brilliant athmosphere ..

.. 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.

3.12.: talking Macbeths !

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.

macbeth_blogAt 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 andreas@schneidersbuero.de and arrive to Schneidersladen on 3.12. til 6 pm.

Schneidersladen, Am Kottbusser Tor Berlin, 3.12. 18h – 20h +X, 10 EUR p.P.

New modular VCOS..

..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 ..

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.

X-SERIOUS!

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.

MACBETH 4 3HE!
