Author One "last" module for my Buchla 200, which one?

Hi friends

I have one space left (1U) in my system. It seems to me the most useful module would be a 256e or 257r but the one I would love to add is a 285e or 285r!!

Being a newbie I seek your expert advice to guide me on what would be best, including other modules not mentioned above.

My system consist of 292e, 281e, 261e, 259e, 258r, 223e, 297, 250ex2, 266e, 291e, 207, 296r, 20C.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Cheers cool
Carlos

I agree some CV mixing would be a good idea in your system

257e with its slews or 254e are both great choices. 210e would give some basic cv mixing and allow you to reroute patches for some flexibility in live situations.

254e is nice as its analog and doesn't have issues passing pulses like the 256e and 257e but still gives you patch recall.

With the 2X250e, 291e, and 223e, I'd definitely want presets (225e). Useful for more than just traditional presets too as it can be "played" with the CV inputs and unexpected results when presets are applied to new patches/routings.

Curve ball time: Lose the 207 and one of the 250e's, get a 251e, 256e and 206e... and you'd still have space for that 285e.

Everyone's a winner but your wallet!

I second that! w00t

rayce, rkilman, tIB, vgermuse thanks a lot for your recommendations, much appreciated!

It seems the priority would be to get a 256e or 254e first, do you know if the 254e will become available/when?

A preset manager would be so extremely useful! I will definitely replace the 207r with a 206e.

I guess I will spend some time having fun with the 2 250e before I replace one of them with the 285e/251e combo. This was a very useful suggestion as well, thanks a lot !

Best forum!!

Thanks again,
Carlos SlayerBadger!

The 285s are digital anyway, so go for a 289, I have no idea why this module does not get more love....

I love the 289 and am super happy to have one in my system. It really adds a lot that is not otherwise available, but it does take effort to learn and use - more so than B&A/BEMI modules. I think if it had a display and was e-capable, it would be damn near perfect and get a lot more love.

285e vs 289 - 100% agree. I have both but if I had to choose one, it would be the 289 without hesitation.

Im not sure that's the case with the 285e - I thought it was a digitally controlled analogue circuit?

You can't go wrong with another 258!!
