Dan Snazelle alias Snazzy FX introducing phonegames on NAMM 2014 from Andreas Schneider on Vimeo.

Winter NAMM January 2014. This video just went up 3 hours ago from Andreas Schneider of Schneiders Beuro.  I always wonder when the last NAMM post for the year will go up.

"On the NAMM 2014 the manufacturer of eurorack modules Danny Snazzelle aka Snazzy FX was introducing the world to his Telephne Game .. The situation is a bit amateur but you can hear some sounds at the end of this clip. Later on in 2014 he made a podcast about his work that can be found here .. .."

Published on Feb 22, 2014 VJ FRANZ K·647 videos

"I'm trying out the step sequencing - I'm no expert with Elektron machines, but I can tell you the drums are very crisp, and hard hitting - perfect, as you would expect, for electro beats. ( There is a lot of background noise from the demonstration hall at NAMM! )
This is a new Analog Drum Machine! Coming soon from Elektron."

Dave Smith Instruments... designed and built in San Francisco, USA!

A DSI press release just sent my way. Note it's pre-NAMM. Saving it for the archives.

"SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, USA: Premier polyphonic synthesizer manufacturer Dave Smith Instruments is proud to design and build its illustrious instruments in San Francisco, USA in an American success story fit for the 2014 NAMM Show and beyond.

'We take the craftsmanship of our instruments very seriously,' says company founder and renowned designer Dave Smith. 'So every one of our products is built in San Francisco, California. Unlike other companies, who may build some products in the USA, but bring in others from China, even our low-cost instruments are built here. Our synthesis technology, developed over the last 40 years, allows us to hit great price points, have the most advanced features, build only with metal and wood — no plastic cases! — and still build everything in the good old USA.'

San Francisco-born, UC Berkeley-educated Smith is an archetypical Californian through and through. Responsible for the pre-eminent Prophet-5, the world’s first programmable polyphonic synthesizer back in 1978, he grew his first commercial company, Sequential Circuits, from garage to sizeable San Jose-based success story, playing a pivotal part as the primary driving force behind MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) in the process.

Smith subsequently returned to hardware instrument design in 2002, founding Dave Smith Instruments while working solo from his home in the Napa Valley wine country. Early successes with the Evolver range of analog/digital synthesizers — indeed, DSI’s first product is still shipping to this day — led to him hiring his first two employees in 2007. Continuing to work from their respective Californian homes, this coincided with the introduction of the award-winning Prophet ’08, an eight-voice synthesizer keyboard with a 100% analog signal path; eight-voice polyphony with four-on-four splits and layers; 16 x 4 gated step sequencer; and a full-size, 61-note, semi-weighted keyboard. It, too, continues to make musical waves worldwide.

As a growing Californian concern, Dave Smith Instruments has not looked back since, continuing its forward- looking manufacturing mission with a successful succession of innovative instruments, including the Mopho range of compact and affordable analog synthesizers; the Tetra polyphonic desktop analog synthesizer module; the Tempest analog drum machine (designed by Smith in collaboration with fellow Californian innovative electronic musical instrument designer Roger Linn); and, most recently, the Prophet 12 module, a space-saving tabletop and rack-ready reworking of its 2013 NAMM Show-launched Prophet 12 keyboard, the twelve-voice hybrid digital/ analog synthesizer flagship that Smith duly declared his 'best synth yet.'

Today, San Francisco is its beneficiary, for the now-nine-staff-strong Dave Smith Instruments collectively work in the heart of the city’s historic North Beach district, just a short walk from its manufacturer.

Dave Smith Instruments’ evolving family of illustrious instruments designed and built in San Francisco will be being demoed and displayed in Hall B, Booth 5400 at the 2014 NAMM Show, January 23-26 in Anaheim, California.

About Dave Smith Instruments (

Established in 2002, Dave Smith Instruments is the preeminent manufacturer of polyphonic synthesizers. It is helmed by legendary musical instrument designer Dave Smith, whose innovations include designing the Prophet-5, the world’s first fully programmable polyphonic synthesizer, and acting as the primary driving force behind MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) — he coined the acronym, in fact — for which he received a Technical Grammy® award in 2013. Dave Smith Instruments’ products are used by an ever-increasing roster of well-known musicians and are available from music retailers worldwide. Instruments include the versatile analog/digital hybrid Evolver synthesizers, the Tempest analog drum machine, the all-analog Prophet ’08, and the affordable Mopho line of synthesizers. DSI’s highly-praised, award-winning Prophet 12 combines the best of digital and analog processing in an advanced, powerful instrument that is both respectful of its lineage and a significant technological leap forward. Dave Smith Instruments is based in San Francisco, California, where its instruments are also manufactured."
