Re: MEMS and The University of Illinois Buchla 200

:wow: Thank you for doing this! I'd also love to hear the system, particularly the original 258 and 292.

If anyone did a whole book cataloguing all of the Buchla systems and designs (with lots of pictures & stories etc.), I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

Re: LPG to complement Natural Gate

I would recommend the Sputnik Quad VCF/VCA which still seems to be available. I have that, Natural Gate and Buchla 292c and 292e. In my quest for the best euro LPG I tried many others too. For euro, I'd choose the NG as the best LPG for its lovely sound and versatility but the Sputnik sounds the clo...

Re: Where should I start?

Considering these options, where would you start from? I think the choice should depend on what you are after. If you want more experimental g...

Re: Samodular Buchla kits

No experience building those kits, but can recommend the following. Starter system: 1. 259 oscillator 2. 281 envelope generator 3. 292 vca/vcf/lo pass gate 4. 266 random voltages That will give you a basic voice, basic timing, random melodies, and basic modulation possibilities +1 for the starter s...

Thumbsup for that. TTMC has good vibe.I have the TTMC 158 sine saw in euro, great sound and proper through hole build. Would also love to see them do original design Buchla format modules.

Re: Buchla System purchase 2020?

Well, after much deliberation and input from you (the Buchla community) I ordered my first starter system today. I ordered a LEM 4 with the 259e in place of the 261e and I’m really excited to start my journey in the Buchla universe. While small, it’s a good way for me to test the waters before goin...

There are several moral questions here. (For example: Is it ok asking probaly 15 times more the value than one himself invested, 'just because you can'? Yes, why not in this specific case only?

Is charging almost seven (7) grand for a single module something that Don had envisioned for his instruments? Definitely not and I have lost mega respect for Mark over this. That doesn't make sense. If he can sell it for 7k, then good for him. Nobody is getting rich in Modular Land. If he sold it f...

Buchla is an indulgence. File under "you only live once." There is a special exhilaration that comes for some when they play a Buchla.

Again thanks for all the advice. The planned system pictured above still seems like the way to go for me, given the modules I have now. I've already purchased the 207e (got a good opportunity), so I'll leave the preset manager as a possible 'refershment' of the system in the future. The major thing ...

Hi, I gotta admit that I’m not familiar with the 251e or the 223e, but the only thing I find missing in your wonderful system is preset storage. Personally I would switch the 207e for a 206e, or replace the 207e and 267e with a 227e (quad output, env follower and eq!) but losing the filter might hu...
