Auf Einladung des Stuttgarter stromraum und Herrn Vogelmanns wunderbarem Trommelladen erklärt der Frankfurter Schlagzeuger Oli Rubow die Verbindung zweier Welten: das Handgemachte und der Strom. Und schnürt ein Inspirationspaket zur Gestaltung eigenständiger und zeitgemäßer Grooves.
Der Workshop findet am Freitag, den 27.05.2011 um 20:00 Uhr im Ersten Deutschen Schlagzeugmuseum in Ludwigsburg statt.
Die exklusiven Themen lauten: computerfreie Elektronik-Ideen, feine deutsche analog Elektronik (Vermona, Jomox, Acidlab), das samplebasierte Allround-Talent Roland SPD-S, exotische Trigger-Lösungen, diverse Effektgeräte (Tretminen aus dem Hause Boss und ein süßer Keks aus Frankreich) und:
Warum ich letztlich doch immer noch gerne drei akustische Instrumente (Kick, Snare, Hihat) aufbaue.

Vermona is partner of the sixth festival of experimental electronic music and visual arts organized by the platform Störung. It will start on Thursday 14th of April offering, during three days, the performances, diffusions, screenings, a workshop and a sound installation of outstanding national and international artists of the electronic and experimental scene.
And here it is. We’d like to introduce you to the new PerFourMer MKII. Like its predecessor it features four individual synthesizers that can be linked and played with six different playmodes: 2x monophonic, 2x duophonic and 2x polyphonic.
Each synthesizer has a VCO with sine, triangle, pulse and sawtooth wave shape as well as a noise generator. There is a lowpass filter, an ADSR envelope generator and a LFO that can be synced by an internal or external (MIDI-) clock.
A whole synthesizer can be modulation source for oscillator- or filter frequency of the following one and it has got hard-sync for the oscillators and soft-sync for the LFO.
The PerFourMer MKII can be checked out at the Superbooth at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt and it will be available this summer.
Here are some first audible impressions of the new VSR-3 – vintage spring reverb. All demos are made by Xtront – Thanks for this.

The Lancet family gets another little brother: the Filter Lancet. It’s basically the filter section of the new Retroverb Lancet for those who don’t need the reverb effect. It has lowpass, highpass and bandpass mode, a LFO with six shapes including sample & hold, an envelope generator with attack-decay when triggered from audio signal or attack-sustain-release when triggered via gate.
There also is an envelope follower and an input for an external control voltage source. The input signal can be fattened via overdrive and the BALLS circuitry.
Check it out at the Superbooth in Hall 5.1 / stand C70 at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt.
After the modular dock – our first step in to the world of modular systems – we will present our second eurorack module at the Musikmesse 2011 in Frankfurt.
TAI-4 is a high-end audio interface with transformer isolated in- and outputs. To ensure highest audio quality the module uses custom-made audio transformers to bring balanced signals into and out of your modular system. The TAI-4 will be available in May 2011.
With the VSR-3 – vintage spring reverb and the Retroverb Lancet we will show two new spring reverb units at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt next week.
The VSR-3 is straightforward and solid and adds the beloved spring reverb sound to any input signal you feed it with. It’s available shortly after the Musikmesse.
CRASH! The Retroverb Lancet is a lot smaller than its predecessor but don’t judge it by its size. It got a lot of improvements like the multimode filter, the overdrive, the versatile LFO and the envelope follower … and a few things more.
The Retroverb Lancet will hit the market in June 2011.
