Synthesist, Author, Product Manager at Schmidt Synthesizer
Synthesizer connoisseur Axel Fischer from Munich / Germany was in Highschool when he built the DIY modular synthesizer "Formant", which was published in the German magazine "Elektor" - this was in 1977. Since then he is an active part of the German synthesizer scene, among other things as author for the german magazines KEYBOARDS and Synmag, presenter and internet forum operator.
Due to his experience as project- and product manager in a large company, he finally switched to the music electronics industry. He was involved in John Bowen's "Solaris" project and has been product manager for Schmidt Synthesizer for several years now.
