Dieter Doepfer's Workshop

Some images from Dieter Doepfer's workshop, held last night at Schneidersladen.

The evening started with Dieter introducing us to his favourite past-time by baking a south Tirolean speciality - a buckwheat and berry cake ...

Andreas & Dieter get to grips with the Melita 106 filter.

Mixing it up.

The DIY synth

The board plus mini PSU

Here's one I prepared earlier.

Last slice

The DIY synth packs loads of features into an affordable board and sounds great. The filter has real weight and, if desired, very aggressive resonance. Standard op amps are used throughout, so no obsolete Curtis parts to worry about. For more info, check out the DIY synth product page.

At times it was hard to concentrate on the electronics with the mouthwatering smell of fresh baking wafting in from the adjacent room, but it was worth the wait.

Thanks to Dieter and Andreas for a lovely, informative evening and delicious cake!
