The warming up had a great vibe all over already, but the all-day and all-night-long event of CV Fest is coming up this Sunday, and it is going to give you a memorable experience. Special synthesizers and modular systems, synth-workshops and educational demos for studio workers and producers, topped up by live acts only.
Doepfer’s monster case will be on display at the expo, which will create a lot of excitment for visitors: the
considerable amount of modules in this system can educate you about the basics of synthesis, and also pays hommage to Dieter Doepfer, the true father of eurorack, a format which is getting more and more popular among users every day. Analogue Zone
will also bring small synthsand drum machines to the show next to their especially exclusive Buchla
Other distributors of audio and studio gear are also attending the event, Roland booked David Ahlund for the event, who will give an AIRA walkthrough and a live performance as well. Konstantin from Tiptop Audio is also coming but not alone this time as to Budapest Music Expo’s Analogue Zone booth. His ZV_K live act project will warm the hearts of techno lovers at night which will be supported by Hungarian live acts too.
Tickets are already available

On Tuesday’s CV Fest workshop we can get a better insight on the delicacies of the first Hungary-based eurorack module, the Kasleder Acid Fuzz, and the evening ends with a no-compromise modular techno live act. Apart from members of the Analogue Zone team, Csaba Füle, a Hungarian musician and instrument-builder is also attending the workshop with is DIY electronic instruments, including a clone of a 909 drum machine and a lot of custom fuzz effects. There will be many DIY fuzz effects to test the new MFB desktop drum machines either. As it should be in any synth workshop, everything will be observed by an oscilloscope.
can be regarded as a warmup for the bigger event on the 15th of May which will last a whole day, and will be attended
by local and international distributors, as well as synth manufacturers.
will be a great chance to get an insight of the Hungarian electronic music and festival scene, since many of the representative organisers and producers will be taking part in panel discussions and will be happy to answer the visitors’ questions. CV Fest will also be supported by an original modular techno live act from Berlin next to the Hungarian live acts.
The event starts in the afternoon with raffle games in which valuable prizes offered by the exhibitors can be won by the visitors. The further programmes include contemporary music performances by Bálint Baráth and Ákos Nagy, but David Ahlund
will also be showing the best uses of AIRA
products in a live music context. The
daytime events also include a vocoder karaoke which visitors can try out for fun. The evening kicks in with concentrated techno live acts from local Hungarian artists (Banyek
), and the Berlin-based ZV_K
duo is also coming with their full Tiptop Audio
modular arsenal (Konstantin, the member of the project is also doing an exlcusive workshop during the day!)
The list of exhibitors and and participants’ names are expanding day after they, so it would be no surprise if further treats would be ready till the 15th of May!
