A word from Schmidt
Almost every product in our world of today – also an electronic musical instrument – has been optimized in terms of commercial viability and market value. Inevitably, the resulting product is more or less just that -- nothing but a widely accepted compromise. Schmidt is totally unlike that! Schmidt has been created without any compromise whatsoever in mind.Schmidt is the dream come true of an engineer dedicated to sound. A synthesizer, conceived and perfected in close collaboration with musicians and music producers, brought to life in the most uncompromising way imaginable.Perfection is not just a word: The sound of Schmidt is simply unique, as are its user interface and build quality – a bold statement against the fast-paced and superficial age we live in.Schmidt is a thoroughbred analog eight-voice polyphonic synthesizer with unison and true multitimbrality mode. It sports full MIDI implementation with USB port and complete programmability. The signal path is fully analog with precise digital control.Schmidt´s sound generation engine features virtually everything that subtractive synthesis is endowed with – and even more: Schmidt gives you truly unique features that have never been implemented in an analog synthesizer before, not to speak of polyphonic units! Think of Multi-PWM and Multi-Ring Modulation.Every single parameter – even for the most complex modulation routings you might envisage – can be accessed directly using dedicated frontpanel controls and switches. No more browsing through mind-boggling and confusing menues.Thanks to programmable high-quality realtime controls (pitch and modulation wheel, stick controller, and aftertouch, as well as several inputs for footswitches and expression pedals), Schmidt has become a real performance synthesizer that feels as good as it sounds.Schmidt is made to match the highest production standards – it has entirely been hand-crafted in Germany. The casing, made of metal and carefully selected wood, keeping a close eye on enviromental sustainability, is as beautiful as it is sturdy and robust.
