A richly programmed library of Buchla leads & basses from the synth arsenal of Richard Lainhart. “After playing with this collection with a good buddy of mine, we were both solidly impressed with its usefulness for a wide variety of musical applications. It’s definitely a keeper.” – Keyboard Magazine The Buchla 200e is a modular analog synthesizer designed by electronic music pioneer Don Buchla and built by Buchla and Associates. 200e synthesizer platform includes several modules that roughly correspond to the canonical analog synthesizer’s ones including an envelope generator, voltage controlled oscillators and filters, ring modulator and LFO.
But the Buchla 200e modules were not designed to fit perfectly into these categories. Rather, each module implements and crosses category boundaries according to Buchla’s vision of analog synthesis. The synthesizer sound basics entry offers a helpful introduction to understanding how to compose sound. With that as background, there are two ways to think about making sounds with the 200e: the electronic view and the sonic view. Taken together, the electronic view allows us to explore the sonic properties of networks we can construct with the hardware available, while the sonic view helps us focus on how to make the electronic connections necessary to realize a sound we have heard only in our minds.
