Wow thanks for the excellent responses Peter, Alasdair, and orwell!
The Buchla world is so vast and complex. I love how the folks at the Source of Uncertainty podcast are combining efforts with the Podular Modcast and exploring the same overlaps you guys are talking about.
orwell, it sounds like you have some pretty good experience with the Buchla, I’ve read the control voltages can be a lot different for various reasons. I am curious if I will find that here in vcv.
quick aside -
having just got my first real modular skiff (and that includes a make noise function and a chronoblob) i’m figuring out fast how special that sound can be, and how challenging.
biggest surprise? I still find vcv rack just as fun as addicting as I did before getting the hardware! PS. Trent at Detroit Modular said I was his first vcv rack person, a customer who only learned modular from vcv rack and then from there decided to go hardware. so cool… and damn, $2500 later this stuff is not cheap! I thought I was crazy to buy every single vcv pay plugin, but that’s small compared to a Buchla setup, you are talking $20,000. so cool.
