Thursday, December 8th , at 6pm, we’re holding a workshop for modular beginners in our beloved and once again rearranged showroom. Our goal is that you can confidently make your own first patch after that …and 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 tell you some anecdotes about the history of (modular) synths and gossip about the Eurocrack scene.
Starts at 6pm / At our showroom / Kotti above Kaisers (ring bell: schneidersladen) / The workshop is limited to 12 participants:

.. synthesizers could make one happy, too! If you plan to order something that you would like to have under or instead of a christmas tree – lightning could be even better – we strongly recommend to plan it and ask for availability in time. Usually this is not done in a day and we will recommend you to oversleep your indivdiual selection and constellation, but .. please call in or come in or start reading about it – if, then – now.
Next to our Minimoog demo in the showroom Berlin, we have placed and original Minimoog with an extra portion of patina and the smell of 40 years of stage carreer. Please be very careful comparing the original with the remake.
Personally I still wonder that people go for such an expensive remake when there are so many interesting new possibilities to make music in the market, but thinking further .. in the end .. playing a keyboard on an ipad? .. no.
To explain the idea of modulars and let more people understand the possibilities of such instruments to make music, to learn about maths, frequencies sounds and moods over low voltages and to meet old and new friends we are often on the roads in europe visiting festivals, synth meetings, musical instrument shows and other retail stores over years already.
Yesterday evening I stood in the berlin based schneidersLaden showroom and reflected that at the same time Patrick Detampel is on his way to Munich to explain the latest news of the Doepfer black magic there while Holger Zapf is on the ferry to the UK to explain the source of eurorack on two festivals this weekend. So if you would like to learn more about what we do over here dont hesitate to ask for help, we could be around.
Next Workshop at SchneidersLaden: (?) Dec, 1st or 8th
Workshops in Munich (bei Just Music) .. and learn
more about Analogue Systems in the UK on the
sines and squares festival in Manchester now.
Come to Schneidersladen on Thursday November, 17th for a workshop with Girts Ozolins and Voldemars Johansons from Erica Synths. In this workshop we will cover a lot of topics ranging from designing tube modules, drone music, bbd delays, shift registers to generative patching. As this is really a lot, we will divide the workshop in three sections:
Part One: On the peculiarities of tube design. With an in depth presentation of the new tube FUSION SERIES by Girts. Part Two: also very helpful for creativity: Refreshments. Girts will hand out the praised Riga Black Balsam Liqueur. Part Three: Turning randomness into music.
A different view on patching a modular synth aka Analog Computers. Self generating patches by Voldemars Johansons on soon to be released PICO SERIES modules. More info about erica http://ericasynths.lv/ and Voldemar: http://johansons.info/.
The workshop will take place in our showroom at kottbusser tor above kaisers Nov, 17th 6pm for free, but .. please write an email to Thomas for registration – its limited to 15 participants- (email@example.com)

After his gig in Berlin Jean-Michel Jarre visited our showoroom in SchneidersLaden and met Boris Blank from the Band Yello here. Boris was looking for some modulars picking up a black Doepfer System and the TomOberheim Twovoice Synth for his shows in Berlins Kraftwerk.
wow – 2016 is almost over and many(many!) new manufacturers appeared on the scene; a vivid live scene gets us excited, a larger market is developing… an excellent time to talk about the present and the future of eurorack .. about you and us?
.. as an open discussion on ongoing and coming developments, good and bad ones, the ones we wish for and those we already wish they never happened?
