Will the 260e ever be released?

Author Will the 260e ever be released?

At NAMM 2016, BEMI showed the new 260e Pitch Class Generator. The "classic" 260e comes up for sale very rarely, and I'm eager to get a new 260e.

With BEMI becoming Buchla USA, will this module see the light of day? Analogue Zone, for example, advertises it as being available in 8 to 9 weeks, but that is likely their standard wait time for Buchla modules.

I think only Buchla USA can give an answer about it.


Why don't you ask them ?

We are in the process of updating some modules, and examining some past modules for the possibility of production. We can't address specifics yet because there is a lot to consider in these various processes and we don't want to generate vaporware, but it's good to see interest such as this.

When we have something to announce, we'll announce it... and some may be pleasantly surprised. smile

Thanks for your interest, mutierend!

I will hold onto my hope and get prepared to upgrade to a bigger case. nanners

So, here we are a year later, and I still want a 260e. I stupidly passed on the opportunity to buy one last year. I even have a bigger case.

The 260e is a pretty limited module but for the type of music I make, it would go a long way. Perhaps someone has a suggestion on how to accomplish some of its capabilities with other modules, e.g., Shepard tone. The equalization part is interesting too.

Not a module but couldn’t you use something like Eventide Octavox plug-in and just pitch shift it by octaves in both directions?

That's an interesting idea. It wouldn't be the Shepard tone per se, but it could sound like it.

PM'ed you.

FWIW there's a reactor patch with a perfectly good shepard's tone with considerable more control...
