The gate and cv jacks on the back on the 208C are inputs, not outputs. They work nicely with Eurorack level 1 v/oct and gates.
Thank you, that helps! :)

Re: Buchla Easel Command Module 208C

So I was messing with my 208C and my SH-101 last night, I can trigger the 101 via the 218, which was kinda fun, The Gate out and CV on the back of the 208 though I am not sure of. Since the 208C comes with no explanation of the back panel, does anyone know if its compatible to say the 101's gate/cv ...

You can use the pressure CV to control the CO timbre, the LPG opening, the VCS3 Card's oscillator shape... It's what I use to do with most of the time.
Hey, Thanks for that, will give that a run tonight :yay:

Re: Buchla Easel Command Module 208C

One thing that is a little elusive to me is the Pressure outputs< I dont quite understand what they do with the 218, I am still learning my way around the 218 with the Easel Command... Any tips or hints at a patch or two that would help me make sense of it? sorry but I am a noob to this world and ye...

Some minijack plugs work fine in a tinijax socket, others don't and make bad contact. The minijack sizes vary slightly between manufacturers, this is a "standard" with tolerance. :mrgreen:
Thank you!

I think I figured out the LEM 218 thing but I also prolly/may need a good while to get used to it, pretty amazing though. The EMS VCS 3 card is crazy, I think I need to really sp...

Yup, I also got a 218 Lem to go with my Command Module, I got the fretless version for $699 (b stock) so yeah they have some available for people who are buying the 208C.. Interesting, Wes didn't mention they had fretless b-stock when I called. However, I'm really happy with the fretted 218 - looki...

Re: Buchla Easel Command Module 208C

Wow, quite a price drop. I sent them an e-mail in hopes of grabbing one, hopefully the imperfections aren't too significant, not much of a choice considering you can't find them anywhere else. Yes, I purchased for $599. I should have mentioned that it was b-stock. However, besides a couple of small...
