Re: Suzanne Ciani

Just listened to a great interview with Suzanne and she made mention of a "40 page paper" she wrote back in the day about playing the buchla. I actually found a copy of it here: http://www.listentothis.info/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Report-to-National-Endowment-Buchla-Higher-Qualitysm.pdf Heres a l...

Re: Buchla Easel Command Module 208C

Just tested the iprogram card with the Command and was happy to find out the ipad's 218 is able to control the pitch of the 208c. With prior iterations of the easels you would need a 218e for this. The iprogram card would control the easel's 218e, which in turn would control the 208. I had initially...

Re: Easel Command pitch tracking

I find the 208c Command's pitch to be spot on. With a keystep, using midi I can get it to track seven octaves. As soon as I use the pitch/gate 3,5 mm jack from that backside I get about 5 octaves. Using a 218 with cv in to the 208c I can get it to track 5 octaves. With all of the above there is mino...

Re: Clocking PO32 With Easel EG , using Bastl KLIK

Cool little gadget. Can you explain how the setup works, I'm gonna go on a limb an guess you're using a snappy envelope out to drive the PO32? Are you using cv out or the audio from the easel.

VCS3 Card All features are working. With my buffered 218 patched to the 208c panel keyboard pitch input, it behaves as expected : the scaling is ok and the pitch stays stable regardless of the CO, MO and VCS3 Card key switch setting. Pitch CV via the card connector probably won't work properly if t...

Re: Buchla Easel Command Module 208C

This reminds of an often reported issue of the "classic" BEMI Easel units. Maybe the circuit is the same in the Easel Command ? On the bright side, Buchla would only have to replace a single board if this turns out to be a thing. 8-) Pretty sure i'td only be one card for the prior iterations of the...

Re: Buchla Easel Command Module 208C

Anyone know of a nice (soft) carry bag for the Easel Command 208C? The Intellijel 4U 104 Gig Bag is an almost perfect fit (incl. enough room for carrying the module patched) - but I'm using mine for something else and Intellijel no longer produce that particular bag. What are other 208C users carry...

Re: Expanding on Buchla Easel Command

Thanks everyone. I'm curious about the functionality of the 218 vs. various other third party controllers I could get -- especially the Arturia Keystep, which seems really great. Any ideas? Jim I have used a keystep and a 218. My setup usually involves 2 easels, sometimes an easel and the 208c. Whe...

Re: Expanding on Buchla Easel Command

There are all kinds of great cards floating around. My personal favorite is the 208 Toolbox from portabelabz. It really gives access to the functionality which lies underneath the 208's panel. Not to mention better control over the EG and a cv mixer. Another buchla oscillator to free up the MO to us...

Re: Keyboard Controller for Buchla Easel Command

I have used a keystep with the 208c and to my surprise, really like using it. The aftertouch can translate to touch/timbre/modulation. The pitch, and the modulation wheel works and modwheel is assignable to diverse parameters. You can set up sequences and and use it for various arpeggios, also rando...
