DIY Synth & Soundbox Workshop / Berlin

03.09.2017 - 15:00 Uhr

Samplemusic Festival in Berlin

On 3rd september, 3pm we will do a workshop at Samplemusic Festival in Berlin. In the workshop we will offer to build our new Microphonic Soundbox, what totally fits the theme of the festival, as with livesampling you can unleash the full potential of our new invention: The Microphonic Soundbox.

Microphonic Soundbox (115€) is an experimental instrument, that can be seen as a sound design tool. Depending on how you integrate it in a soft- or hardware setup, it lets you really enter unheard and otherworldly sound spheres. We want to offer an instrument, which is ready as it is but it also should be a platform for experimentation - combine and play it with different metarials! You could play it into mixing desks, complex software patches, loopers or modular synths. It is made for sound exploration and research and creating unheard musical sounds. Easy for beginners!

NoiseFoc (65€) is an experimental VCO (Oscillator) with light control and power starving. Good for drones, noise or non 1V/Oct stuff. It features 3 Oscillators: 2 controlled by potentiometers, 1 with a fix freq or light control. CV In, diode mixed Out, resistor mixed Out. It's also nice as a CV source for crazy modulations. It is a good beginners project.

Our VCO-1 (85€) is an analogue oscillator in Eurorack format which will be accompanied by an expander module soon, which adds lots of functions to it. Click on the link above for more info.
