A video about Noisebug

Author A video about Noisebug

I was able to visit Noisebug in Pomona, CA for the first time this week. It's an amazing store filled with loads of esoteric synths to drool over, including Buchla and 5U stuff. I was so glad I made the drive out there.

I took the opportunity to interview Blake, the manager, about some of his favorite gear there. Great guy and extremely knowledgable.

Cool, I just started watching the video. I actually talked to Blake earlier today to get a Pre-sale going on the Dove Audio WTF Oscillator in MU format. Also ordered a few other modules.

Blake is awesome. Love working with them, just wish they carried more stuff (like intellijel and mutable)

Cool, nice interview and tour! thumbs up Unfortunately it reminded of of about $10k to $20k worth of gear that I would LOVE to have! d'oh! Dead Banana I'd better get off the internet now and go into my studio to dissipate all of this G.A.S. build up! hihi

Thanks for the great video. I just recently discovered noisebug and i'm hoping to make my way there in the coming months.

In that vid, at about 19:00 minutes when they begin discussing the Buchla system ... one of the sections (modules?) of that system on the lower right looks similar to a CD sitting on a module panel. What is that?

One of our 5U subforum members bought one ... and very much disliked it. He was deeply disenchanted with numerous firmware problems as well as a somewhat cheap feel to the controls.

One thing about the black one that is unique and different from the yellow one is the black one uses a full blown FATAR TP-9S keybed if I correctly recall. In fact for a while the black one was being sold for $100.00 more than the yellow one, pointing at the higher quality keybed as one of the reasons.

I had very positive feelings about purchasing the black one, everything about it appeals to me. It's essentially a player's synth, what with the knob-per-function design (mostly so, at least), as well as having a wavetable oscillator that happens to be loaded up with one of the more well known PPG wavetables. I'm also drawn towards virtual analogue circuits. So you put the whole works together ... FATAR keybed, 5 octaves, knob per functions, VA architecture, a nice spread between knobs, one of the VCOs having a PPG wavetable set, and the sub-$1k pricetag ... it all becomes highly appealing.

Until the firmware creepy crawlies ruin the rig and shit in the punchbowl at the otherwise near perfect party.

Holy Cats! That is some seriously left handed/genius stuff going on!

Here's some more!!










This Buchla stuff really seems like my kinda gadgets. I'm already just short of $10k/6 years into MU/Euro as of this date/time, but had I known of the power and capability of Buchla designs I may have elected to go that way with my money rather than the direction I chose to go. I have heard the Buchla gear is quite costly, but I believe I can understand why that would be!

(I'm no longer monitoring this thread)

Wow!
