The view from amerika onto some european modular makers is quite interesting stating out here that we care for features and sound quality in not just high end but higher end modules, so .. thank you for the flowers and .. what’s going on with the products of our american collueges then? Read the whole article hereand join www.superbooth.com for deeper knowledge not just on this.
A real virtual chicken little funk operator – MADE IN USA now (god bless the Amerikafürst) – is indeed available just from the very very best of synthesizershops all over the world..
.. presented here by lovely Marketing Manager Anabelle Spencer for Super Sonic Sound System. To create your own mainframe just visit ussss online and .. conduct your own custom symphony!

02.02.17 | Kommentare deaktiviert für Beginners Workshop Thursday the 9th of February
Thursday the 9th of Febrauary we are back in action with a beginners workshop for modular synths in our beloved and once again rearranged showroom. Our goal is that to help you confidently make your own first patch and… as always to have a good time.
Although we are nerds we won’t get too technical. Along the way we will show you basic patch techniques as well as share some anecdotes about the history of (modular) synths .
Starts at 6pm / At our showroom / Kotti above Kaisers (ring bell: schneidersladen) / The workshop is limited to 12 participants:

Qu-Bit Electronics prepared four fresh products for the NAMM show. Tone is composed of four -24 dB multimode filters, each comes with low pass and band pass outputs. High resonance values make the circuits self-oscillate. By feeding a pitch CV signal to the control voltage inputs of the filters, they can be played tonally correct over a range of about four octaves.
The second new module, called Contour, features four AD envelopes with linear or logarithmic shaped curves. Two or more of the modulators can be chained together. Loop functions make it possible to use the circuits as LFOs with cycle times between five milliseconds and 20 seconds. CV inputs allow to modulate attack and decay lengths.
Chance is a random module with smooth, discrete (stepped), wavetable and blend outputs. The ladder combine sine, saw and triangle waves to generate signals. Furthermore, there are connectors for tapping off clock, gate and rhythm signals as well as white and digital noise. By employing the Chance’s buttons, potentiometers and control voltage inputs, the user can quickly edit, sync and randomly vary the results of the module.
Last but not least, Qu-Bit showed the Mixology at NAMM, a four channel mixing module with send (post fader), pan, solo, mute and level controls plus stereo master section.

Delptronics presented some hot, new modules at the NAMM show. PitchMan is a small, yet powerful sequencer and arpeggiator. It features configurable jacks, knobs with variable range, editable sequence order and length as well as quantization and transposition options. Thanks to the PitchMan’s plain layout with lots of LEDs and no menus, creating melodies is easy as pie.
The second new module is called WheelMan. It is a dual sequential voltage processor with two 8-step outputs and a 16-step output. Utilizing the module’s knobs, signals can be amplified, attenuated and inverted. Input A is normalized to 5 V, input B is normalized to instance A. WheelMan can be chained (and slaved) to the PitchMan.
Also a little spring module – a co-operation with elctrofaustus the Blackfly EF110m to create springsounds or use it as a voltage generator for levels or envelopes etc – very enjoyable.
Synthrotek (Steve) & Division 6 (Scott) had a joint stand at the NAMM show.
Optical highlight was a case with integrated speakers and a screen made of an old piece of medical equipment. Unfortunately, it won’t go into batch production. But don’t be sad, there’s lots of other cool stuff that will become available in a few months.
The Division 6 – Dual Business CardSequencer, for instance, combines two composition tools with up to 16 steps. It emits CV, gate and accent signals, clock and XP connectors make it possible to synchronize the two units with each other as well as other equipment.Filtare SEIII is a multimode filter with low pass, band pass and high pass outputs. Additionally, there is a notch output with variable low and high pass portions.
Synthrotek showed the Roboto, a sound manipulation tool based on old voice transformer chips. It is not only meant for vocals, but other audio material as well. The results range from metallic to extremely scruffy. Another new module is the Verb, an effects processor based on several PT2199 chips. It offers thick, atmospheric reverbs with a touch of digital vintage feeling. With the Space Drum Synthesizer, Model DS-C-II, Synthrotek is also preparing a new, standalone drone generator.

so .. lets make europe even greater then, ..
or what was it all about?
NAMM 2017 is over now, there is still plenty of news to be released here so stay tuned, please.
We all will hopefully meet again on the upcoming SUPERBOOTH17 in april at FEZ-Berlin to see how great the USA became in between. I wish us all the best not just for this but first of all lets try even harder to keep some peace in the world here and there.
01.23.17 | Kommentare deaktiviert für NAMM 17 – Doepfer
The inventor and most classical eurorack brand Doepfer now released their version of a mixing desk inside the system in a definitely modular form. Plenty of their modules are also available now as a so called vintage versionin black so they are getting back to the classical shine of a (moog-style) modular taking it to the complex possibilities of nowadays modulars. The existing Doepfer products in silver aluminium are classical themselves in between, still built in a very high quality for mostly very affordable prices.
The earlier combination of A-138-O/A-138-P as a simple four- to sixteen-channel Mixer can very soon be expanded by the A-135-4-A/B/C to have the 4 to 16 channels added with CV-controlled AUX, PAN, LEVEL and MUTE parameters. The modular component 135-4C is a four channel envelope follower opening a new horizont of level control in eurorack systems. Apart from this, Doepfer was presenting the comeback of their high end VCO that had to be discontinued once their curtis chips was no longer available (as far as I know). Now the „new“ A-111-2 is available in a wide and a very small version, see all details shown by Patrick Detampel in this Video:

4ms – presented two promising new modules at the NAMM show.
The Stereo Triggered Sampler records audio material with a resolution of up to 32 Bit and 192 kHz. Data is stored on a Micro SD card, the file system with its banks and slots is colour coded. For playing back samples, the module offers two players with potentiometers for pitch, start position, length and playback direction. Using its CV inputs, lots of functions can be controlled via external circuits.
The second module is called Tapographic Delay, an echo effect with up to 32 taps. Thanks to its innovative, digital design featuring storage banks, sequence functions and so forth, this Eurorack component is capable of astonishing, more or less experimental results. We can’t wait to give it a test drive at Schneidersladen.
