Musikmesse 2013: Coolest New Gear from the Show

Top Picks for Musikmesse 2013
Coolest New Gear at Musikmesse 2013?
The Musikmesse show saw a whopping 113,000 visitors through the door this year in Frankfurt, with 42,300 oversears visitors travelling there from 142 countries including Netherlands, France, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, Austria, the Russian Federation, Sweden, Poland, Italy, Belgium, Austria and Russia!

According to the organisers this was up from 109,481 the previous year with the fact that the public had been granted earlier access to the show on the Friday afternoon bound to have had an effect.

Detlef Braun, managing director of Messe Frankfurt, said "This visitor response has far surpassed our own expectations and that of the exhibitors. With 113,000, the visitor numbers not only exceeded last year's results by three per cent, but it also surpasses the all-time record high from 2009 (112,478 visitors)."

With Musikmesse now over here's our round up of some of the coolest new releases from this year's show.

Korg's Volca series of analogue synthesizers; Volca Bass, Volca Beats and Volca Keys. These little machines have many of us excited here at Gear4music.com and are due to be available in September. Used separately or together these affordable synths can create a diverse array of analogue sounds and are battery powered so can be used out on the go, or at home linked up to your favourite DAW.

Novation's Bass Station II is a reworking of the classic BassStation synth with two distinct analogue filters, 64 factory presets and 64 user slots. With two filters, two oscillators and a third sub-oscillator, patch save and a fully analogue effects section, step sequencer, arpeggiator, full sized keys and a powerful modulation section you have the makings of something pretty special.

Nord's Lead 4 Performance Synthesizer is an exciting prospect for any synth lover with innovative new performance features, advanced layering and synchronization possibilities, new filter types and on-board effects. The new Variation buttons on the Lead 4 will allow you to override almost any parameter of the synthesizer, instantaneously. Have you ever wished you could change LFO speed, Modulation routings and reverb amount - all at once, in the middle of a sound? With the Nord Lead 4 you can.

The Boss RC-505 is a powerful tabletop looper for beatboxers, singers and instrumentalists - perfect for performers who want total control at their fingertips. With 5 stereo phrase tracks, powerful onboard effects and four simultaneous audio inputs plus USB the RC-505 is a beatboxer's dream.
