Cool looking, to be sure, but I’d laisser tomber the part about being ‘awesome’. That thing looks like a wreck.

There's some pin connectors on the back- is this thing missing some circuit board pieces, or is that to connect to power or something?

Any idea how many of these were made?

Vemia seems to be Elephants' graveyard of Buchla stuff those days. There are also listed a few more parts like OG panel & suitcase for 208 (yeah !).

Regarding the 448, as far as i know, it used to connect to main 400 unit à la 222e/223e. It was available all in one in the main cabinet or separate from main unit. Internally it's routed to main CPU & MARF.

BTW 448 was originally a classical black&white piano keyboard controller but never passed the prototype step. Apart from that i don't know exactly how many have been built but i'd say around 10 ? At least 4 units are working and in goods artists hands.

Too bad Rick isn't around anymore.

EDIT: more info on the 400 (images are gone unfortunately) https://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=40053&postdays=0&pos torder=asc&start=50
