Re: Buchla History Lesson, Please (Sequencer + Tape Machines)

I'm sure I have read a description in a book (Allen Strange?) of a process of recording 'shaped noise' onto tape and extracting the envelopes later (as CV) for use in compositions - I can't remember where I saw this, or much detail (clearly!) but it was a way of recording CV into tape and decoding ...

Re: PS2a Repair

Ha yeah I figured that was the case. Just wishful thinking that there was some magical way to open it without doing permanent damage.

PS2a Repair

Did a little diving but couldn't find anything. Curious if anyone has repaired a PS2a before?

I have an old one that is missing it's ground connection. Handy enough to do the repair myself but have no idea if it's possible to get the brick open without damaging things. Any tips?

Re: Controlling Ciat Lonbarde with Buchlas and vice versa.

You can definitely route CV to and from Ciat. I loved the 208 + Cocoquantus combo, but mainly for processing audio. Of course Ciat provides a lot of non-linear / chaotic leaning modulation options so it might be good to define what sort of control you are looking for. But generally speaking, from my...

Bugbrand - Krell

Decided to try and implement Todd Barton's Krell patch with my Bug system. The patching environment is similar, (dual cycling envelope generators influencing timing and dynamics). Instead of working with a more traditional sample/hold configuration I used one “channel” of the DDSR to create pitch in...

Appreciate all the insight. I think a dedicated panner/crossfader would be great but understand the setbacks that may be involved. I loved working with the Wiard 300 Dual Mixolator and even later down the line the Make Noise RxMx for these purposes, so maybe looking to another format for signal rout...

Stereo Mixing

I'm curious how other Bug users are handling panning/stereo/quad mixing with their systems? I find myself doing most of it in post, recording two channels via the dual mixing panel but it's less than ideal in a live situation and I'd love to have more automation going on with the stereo field while ...

Also should probably just ...

Entrancer - Downgrade (Denver, CO) - Serge, Bug, Elektron

I have a new release physical + digital via a new Denver (CO) based label Multidim Records. The album took close to two years for me to complete, using various setups (Serge, Elektron, Bugbrand, Monome, Ciat-Lonbarde). The release mutated a lot throughout the two years but I’m very happy with where ...

Really loving how versatile the DRM2 is. I started exploring it as a mono synth and it easily gets into that woody acid territory that I love about the TB-303.

I compiled this release of modular improvisations that I created over the past couple of years. Mainly Ciat-Lonbarde, Serge, Buchla, Mutable, Shared System and BugBrand. Spent the better part of the last five years feeling unsettled and migrating from one system to another, learned a lot through thi...

For anyone interested in cassettes, the release is seeing a limited tape run with beautifully printed Risograph j-cards.

I can attest to the greatness of the modules. Mutable in 4U really gels with a the Serge paradigm IMO. I would say I'm sad to see them go but I have greater things on the horizon :hihi: the bad producer. syncretism Glad you are digging them!

arnoux Thanks for listening. Those sounds are generated from the cocoquantus, it's sort of the nature of that machine IMO. I'm pretty certain I'm modulating the skips with the S/H of one of the quantussy voices. I tend to have the speed and chaos turned all the way up, then slowly turn the chaos do...

the bad producer
:tu: for this release very minimally, I believe on V, VII and VIII.

I really enjoy using them subtly, often processing clouds through rings. VII uses a six voice drone mainly from the DUSG's/PVCO's ran through this chain. Rings provided the light chorus like sound.

I've done a lot of ambient work in the past but never really focused it into a release. Something about focusing on the Serge has really helped me take that initiative.
