      1. Well, if you’re counting Schmidts that are being used as coffee tables, I have seven. One is being used as a coffee table and one as an end table. I have an eighth one that I hollowed out and turned into a dog bed, but I’m not counting that one.

      2. i call bull-schmidt on these comments . . i know you guys have more than just 5 or 6 come on. I just use a pile of mine to prop up a PS3300 these days.

        1. well for full disclosure it’s four per chain, but i’m running a multitimbral setup with eight different sounds … so … anyways, somebody is lying, else together we’d already have more Schmidts than were even produced

          1. Shhh…. don’t tell anyone, but the Schmidt is in fact an Arduino-based VA synth housed in a cardbox case, manufactured in New-Delhi by some new-born Indian babies.

    1. Yes, it’s a lot of knobs. Modular systems also have a lot of knobs. And patch points.

      It would be interesting to see what it would take to produce an 8-voice modular system that plays well together, i.e., modules could be grouped, like one VCO a group master, and the others synchronize their settings to it. And then see how much it would all cost…

  1. Do people that own a Schmidt actually use the internet? I was under the impression that they hired retainers to bother with those kinds of trivial activities.

  2. All knobs now have double or even function, documentation available on hand-carved granite slabs for an affordable 5000 Euro (German only)

  3. Version 2 !!!!! WOW !!!! I tried to download my update and it appears the web site has crashed due large volume of users upgrading at the same time.

  4. analog synth vs firmware hm … for me an analog synth has no firmware
    its a digital controlled analog synth with pros and cons
