Musikmesse Frankfurt 2008

One, two, three...

Absolutely incredible... you turn around for a second and find yourself at the Musikmesse for the third time already. In order not to make it the same procedure as every year, we had our booth not in D64, but in D08 in hall 5.1 from March 12th to 15th this time.

Like every year, let's start the whole thing with a look at our trade show bonsai. Wow, you can definitvely see that some time must have passed... it seems that we have to build a gigantic greenhouse next to our production facility. Sonny got pretty big indeed.

Our booth at the end of the pro audio universe (aka the hall). Finally a possibility to have discussions in the quietest of surroundings and to hear every little detail during the demos. But where were all the people coming from all of a sudden? And the totally unexpected noise?

Man, we really got to build this thing as one of our next projects. We had born the idea for the emergency compressor already quite some time ago, and here it can be marveled at in form of the latest prototype of this crazy idea. 100% discrete, class A, maybe even with transformer...

... and while we were still thinking about the mastering version, somebody else had already put the grunge variant into serial production. Damn it! And even the handling is way much cooler here: Just one single button for everything! As mentioned before: Damn it!

Great show: a demo with our friend Tom Van Den Heuvel. Dear everybody, should you see this guy hanging around at our booth on one of the next trade shows, please don't miss the opportunity. With Tom's suggestions, everybody will find the long sought for tone with our gear.

The southern sun rising over our booth: alpha customer Andreas Kämmerer from Farao Studios (left) and Armin Dörfler from Silent Service coming from Munich. Andreas is always afraid when he meets us, because we threatened him with also sending an mpressor for demo one day... hehe.

And here come Mikkel Schille (left), Bo Medin (right) and another friendly guy from Golden Age Music in Scandinavia. What these guys had to show in their racks I am not afraid to call the dream of many, many gear freaks. By the way, take a closer look ;-)

Larger than life: Gil Griffith from Wave Distribution posing next to a restraint hint to our booth. Up till this day we didn't know that Gil acted on behalf of the Men in Black. Now where is that little silver device? Attention, here follows the flash, and then...

From left to right: Tom, Nick Litwin from our Spanish sales partner Mastering Mansion Madrid, and Ruben. Nick nicely demonstrates that you could also wear the emergency compressor on a nice gold chain. Not that I am thinking of certain musical genres now.

Frank Röllen from nrgrecording is a dangerous man, as he is one of the leading heads of the Copycats (local association: Middle Lower Rhine). Here we see him making shameless promotion for a competitive product! No reason for Vic to be happy, though: just wait until Frank starts to mess around...

Slightly out of focus, but still easy to recognize: Luc (left) and Ingrid Vigneron from our BeNeLux distribution M2M under discussion with Dominik. So far, the next thing has always been going for dinner with the two. If you ask me, this should become a general rule by all means.

Always in the best temper and visiting every trade show in the universe: Silke Klein from Studiomagazin. As you can see, the emergency compressor has another big fan. Well, it is just like said at the beginning: We somehow have to build this thing one day. I like the idea.
