Modular AND C15 synth workshops at SchneidersLaden on 14. December!

Double workshop time again! Join us on 14. December for another Modular Beginner Workshop (6pm) and a special workshop about a unique synthesizer – the C15 by Nonlinar Labs (8pm)! We are very happy to have Stephan Schmitt as our guest and your host for the C15 workshop at SchneidersLaden at 8pm.

The Nonlinear Labs C15: The character of the C15 synthesizer stems from a puristic digital engine which produces a unique palette of sounds seamlessly spanning from organic and acoustic to experimental and electronic.

For those who love to play keys – C15 workshop

Nonlinear Labs was founded in 2011 by Stephan Schmitt. The company is dedicated to building advanced electronic instruments for performing musicians, focusing on playability, expressiveness, quality, and durability.

The synth engine of the C15 is called Phase 22. The core structure is a phase modulation synth that is based on two sine oscillators and two sine shapers only. Their signals can be passed through a comb filter, a state-variable filter, and a chain of five effects.

The design process for Phase 22 aimed at building an expressively playable instrument that has a strong individual character. At the same time the set of parameters should be small enough to be easily accessible.

The Beginner Workshop

We get the evening started with our Modular Beginner Workshop at 6pm. This workshop is for anyone thinking about getting their first modular synthesizer. We will cover all topics necessary to understand the principles of synthesis and patching. We’ll cover the basic vocabulary and principles of synthesis needed to navigate the world of modular, and of course you’ll be able to ask the questions that your own research didn’t provide the answer to.

After the Beginner Workshop you can get some drinks at the bar and play on our Modular Synthesizer Carousell or simply join the second workshop of the night! It’s a pay-one-get-two type of thing – except: You don’t pay anything!

Both workshops are free of charge, and there is no registration required! Just come by and enjoy your time with interesting workshops and great people!
