The very first eurorack modulars ..

.. that was coming to us from the US has been designed by Mike Brown alias Livewire some long time ago. His biggest thing ever was the oscillator called AFG with two boards behind each other, I think nobody ever built something like this later on. Mike Brown sadly passed away by cancer, a few more AFG units with his designs are made now by a good friend who worked together with him earlier.

On November 14th SchneidersLaden is crossing borders between computer and modular worlds with the first workshop to about integrating your modular with software. Bitwig will be there to show you the powerful combination of their highly innovative software with hardware modular synthesizers. Here is what Bitwig announced: ” Bitwig’s own Fredrik Astevall will present Hardware Integration with Bitwig Studio. He will cover setting up Bitwig with any modular CV gear, how Bitwig’s Unified Modulation System enhances all hardware and plug-ins, coupling The Grid’s virtual modules with real hardware, and the endless sound design possibilities of Bitwig Studio. So come see how Bitwig Studio and hardware play together.” The workshops start at 7:30pm and participation is free of charge!

Supercritical: another week & workshop!

SchneidersLaden welcomes Supercritical Synthesizers on November 7th. Surly the most far traveled guests of this workshop season. The new modular maker from Finland has brought us the Demon Core oscillator – the mighty 16-VCOs-in-one-module. During the workshop we’ll hear about what the idea behind their first product was and what made them join the modular family – there will be live music, nice people and some drinks, as usual.

Workshop starts at 7:30pm and is free of charge. An additional workshop for unknowing people will start at 6pm to let you have an idea, what we are talking about .. all this is new to you? Why not join the Modular Beginner Workshop at SchneidersLaden, it is free of charge and you learn about basic synthesis and all you need to know about modulars. Find out more here.

This weeks Workshop on Thursday:

On Thursday 31st of October SchneidersLaden welcomes MFB – the drum machine and analog synth specialists from Berlin. The expertise of MFB has long been proven by many many drum machines, modules and complete synthesizers. The Tanzbär 2 for example brings everything to the table that made the MFB drum machines so popular in the past. With powerful analog voices, flexible digital voices and a really capable sequencer the Tanzbär 2 is easily one of the most advanced drum machine in the sub 1000 Euro range.

But there are also several synthesizers – from Keyboard synths like the Dominion 1 to small, portable machines with huge sounds like the Dominion Club, which is a more compact version of the keyboard synthesizer.

We are looking forward to what MFB will bring with them and even more to what they will be doing with their machines. Put on your dancing shoes – this is going to be a fun night with some serious analog beats.
