A couple of things have come up recently that made me feel the need to address the following issue:
I do not work for Schneidersbuero, do not get paid for my tests and I am certainly not Andreas Schneider!
I am a long-standing customer of Schneidersbuero and, when I'm particularly interested in a module, Andreas generously allows me - as he does others - to try before I buy. As I might only have a weekend to get to know a module, I make as many recordings to document its strengths and weaknesses and help my purchasing decision.
I've found these tests enormously useful and figure others might too. Hence, the blog. Naturally, in thanks for the loan, I pass my posts on to Andreas and this is why they will occasionally also appear on his blog, Stromkult. The modular community, whilst currently experiencing a boom, is relatively small and manufacturers, dealers and retailers need all the support they can get.
One last point. I don't always buy the modules I test! This would not be financially possible and, truth be told, once the initial rush of GAS has evaporated, I often find I can do without the latest whizz-bang and make use of the modules currently in my two-case system.
Thats it - now, back to the modules!
