Synth Porn Of The Week: The Schmidt Analog Synthesizer

Schmidt Analog Synthesizer

While there were a lot of cool introductions at Musikmesse 2011, this week’s Saturday Synth Porn really starts and stops with the Schmidt Analog Synthesizer, Stefan Schmidt’s ‘Super Synth’.

We’re not sure if it’s because it’s powerful, expensive or unavailable – but, this Teutonic heavywieght found more admirers among our readers than any synth in a long time.

Is it the 157 knobs, 8 analog voices with four oscillators and 7 filters per voice, and a controller for everything?

Demo at our previous Schmidt Analog Synth post.

  1. Quite amazing that this seems to be /the/ item people are talking about then taken the whole fair (and some pretty big names) into account. Not amazing when you look at this, don't get me wrong, but when looking at the bigger names…. (then again, lets be honest; what's in a name?).

    Well; amazing for me anyway that is. I'm not that long into the "scene" and probably just blabbering a bit right now 🙂

  2. Ok, ok, ok; at this time I should think before posting but ok…

    +1 synthhead for this. It serves a double purpose: now we can also see for ourselves that the led and display colors can indeed be tweaked and modified.

  3. Interesting that tweaking the LED's would be a popular feature – but it's the sort of "out there" stuff that mainstream manufacturers don't seem to be considering.

    LED mods are huge with the x0xb0x community.

    LED mods are certainly huge with the 303/x0xb0x community.

  5. as someone who has had just about every piece of hardware synths since 73, and have been only using virtual stuff for a number of years, this is one hardware based synth that makes me want to get one. beautiful. i hope it sounds like my old memorymoogs, when they worked………
