Buchla Easel K tip

Published on Oct 4, 2015 Todd Barton

"Since the 223e module can store only one patch(1) I realized that you could actually store 4 different Radio Output Kinesthetic pad configurations. Of course, you would need to re-patch from one Radio Output section to the other but it is possible. You would also need to remember any 208 setting that might change.

Let’s look at this(2):

I’ve programmed Radio 6 for Arpeggiation on A-E and a little modal scale on L-Q.
The L-Q pads are sending Pressure to control Timbre. V pad controls the speed of the Arpeggiator.

Next I’ve programmed Radio 7 for pads U-Y with Location controlling Modulation.

I still have two more Radio outs that I could program but have not yet taken the time.

Here’s a very rough video demo:

(1) once you’ve found the patch you want to keep, press the Remote button, thus turning off the red l.e.d—it will be saved on powering down.\

(2) I don’t have an official Easel K but have hooked up my 223e to my Easel’s 218 which give the exact same results."

"Using the 218’s Pulser to clock for the 218 Sequencer and the 223e Arpeggiator you can have 2 synchronized variable step/pitch combinations: 3-5 steps with the 218 and from 1-23 steps with the 223e. Also, the 223e offers many pattern modes: Rising, Falling, Triangle, Random and Spiral."

"In contrast to Tip 2, this tip uses the 223e Arpeggiator to clock the 218 Pulser. For a close up photo of the card used here go to:"
