A really good choice
Werner2209, 10.07.2014
A few weeks ago I got the Marienberg-Devices Basissytem and I was asked if I would not give a customer rating. I would like to do hereby. However, in the asterisks the documentation is missing :-(

Why did I decide to do this, because you have to invest a few Euros already:
1. I start with the oscillator:
Obviously, the top octaves, ie I have a sound source an octave higher in addition, without further additional oscillator .. Only suboscillators are spread.
Furthermore, it is already noticeable that everything can be controlled manually and via CVs. The promised linearity over the octaves, ie, moods in high and low tones, are equally sensitive, I have certainly gained this impression.
2. The multifunction filter and amplifier have similar extras to offer.
However, I like the ADSR envelope module very well. Only the combination possibilities with only 2 generators are very diverse. I have allowed me to buy a second of it :-)
3. Now I would like to mention the excellent handling. It's just fun to use the very sensitive rotary controls.
If you have fun using your old instruments and looking at what's going on, you will often have a lot of fun. Be it sound changes through the filter or percussion effects by the envelope generator.
This is precisely the special incentive of the open modular system.
4 It is hardly fun if compatibility with other great instruments from other manufacturers would not be guaranteed. :-) also that is the case!

Now my resume:
Much of it I have already anticipated, and do not have to show again that I am excited by the purchase of the basic system of Marienberg devices .. I am also glad that not only American and Japanese, but also more and more manufacturers with such manufacturers Convincingly produce good synthesizers at an acceptable price.
One thing I can not leave unmentioned. The documentation is very technical and without examples in the application.

The analogous procedure
06.02.2016
Should I? or should I not ...? That was the recurring question that I asked myself. But now the Marienberg Basic System is at my house and I have not regretted the purchase, but was so convinced that I bought more modules from Marienberg and put them in a second cabinet on top.

First, I noticed the very solid processed case made of solid beech wood. No matter if you move the pots, or put patches in the jacks, I can not complain about anything, that also applies to the first impressions of the sound image. The tuning stability and quality of the oscillators are excellent, which I could learn in addition to my ears with different gauges. There are several functions of Marienberg, where I have not helped any general literature, but only the personal telephone contact of the manufacturer. After a few extensive phone calls with the customer-oriented developer I realized that this system is not a clone, but was a product of many years of independent development, in conjunction with suggestions of many musicians.

Each module is highly sensitive, but ultimately the overall sound has to be right. Alone the VC oscillator A has so many more functions than the VCOs that I know from my analog synths, like NEGATIVE and POSITIVE PULSE WIDTH. Already with one of these VCOs fat sounds are possible, which have impressed me.
From the modulation options of the VC ENVELOPE GENERAROR A I am more than convinced, because there is the possibility eg to control the CVs IN and GATE OUTs for ATTACK, DECAY, SUSTAIN and RELEASE optionally also individually.

For me, the high price was a bit less seductive at first, but the Marienberg is definitely worth every penny, because he is on the level of a high-end product, as I think.
At any time I would buy such an excellent system again!
