Schmidt Synthesizer

   (0 reviews)

It's the Schmidt!, a no compromise analog 8-voice polyphonic synth. Nearly every product in our world of today is developed with commercial viability and market value in mind. Inevitably, these products are never as good as they could have been. Schmidt is quite unique and has been created without compromise.

Schmidt is the dream come true for an engineer dedicated to sound, conceived and perfected in close collaboration with musicians and music producers, brought to life in the most uncompromising way imaginable.

Perfection is not just a word: The sound of Schmidt is simply unique, as are its user interface and build quality ヨ a bold statement against the fast-paced and superficial age we live in.

Schmidt is a thoroughbred analog eight-voice polyphonic synthesizer with true multitimbrality. It sports full MIDI implementation and programmability.

Schmidtᄡs sound generation engine features virtually everything that subtractive synthesis is endowed with and more. Schmidt gives you additional features that have never been implemented in a fully analog synthesizer before, features that are truly unique to Schmidt. Picture multiple pulsewidth modulation and multiple ringmodulators for starters.

Every single parameter, even for the most complex modulation routings you might envisage, can be accessed directly using dedicated frontpanel controls and switches. No more browsing through mind-boggling and confusing menus. Instant tweaking heaven!

Schmidt is crafted to match the highest production standards. It is entirely hand-made in Germany. The casing, made of carefully selected wood and metal, is as beautiful as it is sturdy and reliable. Every Schmidt is carefully assembled and tested by Stefan Schmidt himself.
