SUPERBOOTH18 – Synth Expo Berlin (Part 1)

225 exhibitors were at the Superbooth18 from 3.-5. May in Berlin. The event took place in the so-called FEZ (leisure and recreation center). This year it was two weeks later than 2017 and so the surrounding Wuhlheide Park was full of spring – green through and through. A very pleasant setting for the concerts on the floating stage, in the beer garden behind the FEZ and in the cafés.

SUPERBOOTH17 – Synth Expo Berlin (Part 1)

Superbooth 2017. What Schneider’s Laden started as an experiment in 2016 is already a fixed entity in the synth universe. Although nuts and screws seem to dominate, some exhibitors were more keyed to the main stream of the music business (such as Yamaha, Roland, Korg, Akai, etc.). First the big surprise: Superbooth has moved! Although it’s premiere in the Funkhaus Berlin last year was marked by a great atmosphere, those huge crowds in the aisles just got in each others way. They needed something roomier.

SUPERBOOTH16 – Synth Expo Berlin (Part 2)

We met Dave Smith. The famous synth pioneer is very agile and inventive, and he doesn’t seem to become older! He proudly presented the Prophet-6, OB-6 and Pro-2 – the current first class instruments of DSI. I had some questions regarding the family’s prehistoric ancestor Prophet-5, but Dave was not very much interested, which is, admittedly, quite understandable. True pioneers don’t live in the past. They look ahead!
