Hi Alex,

Could you post more details about the Wormhole?
Let’s say I wanted to just send Midi Clock to my system, would the Wormhole accommodate that?
Can you describe a few other use case scenarios?

I have a 225e in my 18 space but am thinking about adding a second, smaller case and want some midi and other external connectivity. This case shall have a lot of Keen in it 8-)

hi Dustin,

the Wormhole itself can receive midi clock and route it through the buchla i2c bus, just like the 225e. but if you pair the Wormhole with the 283 you'll get super-powerful midi/osc-to-cv/pulse and vice versa system, fully programmable, much more powerful than currently existing buchla midi solutions.

cheers,

Alex

p.s. btw, we just finished assembling the 287e run, fyi

can't promise "a lot of demos" for i spend most of my time to work on hardware/software, and the run is too small for special marketing :)

Great !! at last someone think of OSC and Buchla, it could be really powerful depending on the implementation.

"traffkin" could you elaborate a little more ? as long as I know or have used OSC need a wireless connection,
- Is it going to have a wireless connection or is it going ti be via USB ?
- are the OSC strings going to be fixed on the module ?
- Is it going to save presets ? is 225e compatible?
- Which kind of OSC messages can the user send, triggers, modulators, multiballs ?

Have more questions but this are crucial for me.... thank you. Great work !!!

- it has all needed wireless - wifi and bluetooth
- nothing is fixed, fully configurable via ipad
- it will act as the “e” preset manager with an ipad aid
- it will translate any osc messages to cv/pulses, when connected to the 283

Can the Wormhole be used with a 225e at the same time?

but we plan to make really powerful cabinet with a lot of auxiliary stuff built-in

theoretically yes

but the thing is that it will do plenty of useful things along with the similar functionality

Wormhole will be mine!
Can the wormhole act as a router for the internal bus (I mean, for example routing the messages from the 251e to the 259e and 281e)?

only in case the 251e itself is capable to send messages over the internal bus

i wrote the sentence above and then realized that it is hardly possible because there's no way to interrupt the message from one module to another and retransmit it...

but perhaps Doug could correct me, if i'm wrong

Of course it can't be done. The 251e, AFAIK, does not transmit anything on the internal bus so there is nothing for the Wormhole to route. Sorry, my bad, I got confused.
