What is people thoughts on Buchla black panels?
If you could have an entire black Buchla system would you?

It looks good, but I personally like the 200 style (silver with blue knobs). Thats how I also do Buchla 100 modules. For this thing I would order a silver Panel...

An all black system would look nice, but given the majority of systems are comprised of the anodized raw and blue, I think more people would prefer traditional.

If there was enough interest I either have, or have access to quite a lot of Buchla 200 series & could make a black panel system. So it's cool to know if there is anyone interested in this sort of thing.

When I eventually get to building a Buchla system, it will be all black.

I'd prefer to see some indication on the panel about what it is and who designed it - giving credit where credit is due. But I'm not your market for these, so whatever.

I may be mistaken but it looks like the “String Oscillator” PCB is missing the drill holes for all the banana socket. If so, this board would be impossible to build.

About a month ago I asked this guy via Facebook not to sell panels and PCBs for these projects. And yet, here we are again, with a new PCB added to the list.

These are ersatz copies of the Buchla-format modules that I designed for 1979.ws which are derived (with permission) from Mutable Instruments open source hardware.

Two of the three PCBs being sold here will not work without custom firmware. The seller asked me, after putting these panels and PCBs up for sale on Facebook, if any custom firmware was required.... hmm.

The seller appears to be trying to dump unusable excess inventory onto unsuspecting builders who have no way of finishing the projects.

If you want to make money from someone else's work without permission or credit, the least you could do is verify that what you're selling actually works.

This is mentioned in the first post of the thread, although if "source files" seemed ambiguous, hopefully that's clarified now.
PCBs no longer available

Locking this down. VirusInstaller, please contact me as this advert and the ones for the Performer sequencer seem suspect.
