1. Buchla 296e tutorial 01

"I plan on doing a little series of tutorials on the workings of the Buchla 296e Spectral Processor. This is the first."

2. Buchla 296e tutorial 02

"This is the second episode in my series on the basics of the Buchla 296e Spectral Processor, and focuses on morphing. I am simply going through the 3 page "manual" that you can download at go to Support tab and look for 200e User's Guide. I am also posting these on my Buchla Blog of easy access:"

3. Buchla 296e tutorial 03

"continuing with my little tutorial series on the Buchla 296e Spectral Processor, this time looking at the Split Filter function."

4. Buchla 296e tutorial 04

"Looking at the Comb Filter and some more at the Split Filtering function of the Buchla 296e Spectral Processor."

5. Buchla 296e tutorial 05

"continuing with my Buchla 296e Spectral Processor tutorials, this one on the Spectral Display and the Envelope Followers."

6. Buchla 296e tutorial 06

"continuing the series with Voltage Controlled Bandwidth Filters."

7. Buchla 296e tutorial 07

"Methodically going through all the functions of the Buchla 296e Spectral Processor. this episode on Spectral Transfers. For best audio of the two examples go to:

8. Buchla 296e tutorial 08

"Episode 8 of my series of basic tutorial on the Buchla 296e. This time I look at Sampled Envelopes."

9. Buchla 296e tutorial 9

"I'm really excited about this tutorial! Having methodically covered the Buchla 296e manual in episodes 1-8, I took a break and explored new territory beyond the manual. This time looking to see if the 296e would feedback on itself. It does! and it is amazing! Enjoy."

10. Buchla 296e Transfer Test

"This is a test, just scrolling through the Transfer Mode settings on the Buchla 296e Spectral Processor. Better audio here:"

11. Buchla Percussive Lava Lamp

"more research and exploration of the Buhla 296e Spectral Processor. Be sure to hear the better, stereo audio here:"

12. Playing the Buchla 296e

"Using clock divided and processed pulses and CVs to sculpt a little S&H sequence heard right at the beginning of the video. Better audio:"

13. Spectral Transfer Transmissions

"this is based on two static sounds whose shifting timbres are creating spectral arrays. the fast bubbly sounds are being created from specific envelop followers of specific frequencies. better audio:"

14. Buchla Spectral Krell

"better audio here:
The 296e is analyzing a low, varying pitched triangle wave and the envelopes outputs are opening and closing VCAs on the 292e. . . the same envelopes are triggering random voltage generators that go to the oscillators."

15. Buchla Spectral Krell ii

"more Spectral Krell, this time just a short teaser. for a much longer audio of same:"
