The performance was based around the Music Easel clone and lorre-mill Double Knot."

"My first recording with these Buchla clone modules from Portabellabz and Samodular. Just an absolutely incredible instrument. It feels alive!
I occasionally kick in distortion via EHX Overlord. A small amount of post processing and Fostex 3180 on the reverb send."

"This is SAM MODULAR 248 Marf. It is a great sequencer looks and works as it should."

This appears to be the first one to be featured on the site. You can find demos featuring the Buchla 248 MARF in additional posts here.

SAModular 30U Buchla Format Case

via this auction

"Some wear on end cheeks. Otherwise works well with 200 series clones. For a 200e predominant system you will likely need a second PSU (I could provide this at additional cost) to prevent lockups... Please note that this sale is for the case only; sale does not include modules."

Buchla Easel Command 208C - Glow

video upload by TheTrackdriver

"A semi-generative piece of music. I recently built a 266 Source of uncertainty clone from Samodular which is sending random quantised notes to the Buchla Easel Command 208C. The range is set by the pitch sliders on each oscillator. The Easel sends the pulser signal to the 266 which splits them up and send them back to each lo pass gate with some random stuff added.

The chords comes from a Waldorf Blofeld and the bass from a Moog Sub 37. I used some pedals and a Roland Chorus Echo RE-301 for effects and recorded everything onto a cassette tape (Marantz PMD 430 recorder)."

Model 416 Meta Expander V2

Model 416 Meta Expander V2 from gd2 on Vimeo.
Some Meta Patches on the new Model 416 Meta Expander.

With a surprise ending...


"The Model 416 Meta Expander is a fully-fledged, standalone breakout box for the BEMI/BUSA Music Easel, which provides access to all of the Easel- and Program Card's patch points (effectively doubling the Easel's control voltage possibilities), and greatly extends the Easel's capabilities with useful, built-in modules.

Version 2 is available as either a "full option" build into its own boat, or as a "panel only" version which can be build into exisiting 4U Buchla boats- or cabinets.

The Model 416 Meta Expander communicates bi-directionally with the Easel by means of a custom-designed Edge Card and a 60-pin flat ribbon cable assembly.

A first prototype of a breakout box was developed in early 2014, right after BEMI's new Easel became available. Several iterations and a 2nd Easel later, I developed a one-off Twin Expander -- aptly named the Model 844 Expander (note the willful 208x4 error). After getting quite a few requests from fellow Weaselers, and realizing that it might be a better idea to limit a commercial version of the Expander to a one-Easel configuration, I designed the Model 416 Meta Expander V1, and brought it to market at the end of 2017. This was a one-run-only, build to order project. The last one left July 2018.

Since then I've gotten some more requests, so in August 2019 I decided to design a new version. Rebuilt from the ground-up and adding new features, it took more than half a year to finish. And then -- ready to be released on the 1st of March 2020 -- something weird happened to the planet...

Nevertheless, it's now August 2020, and Version 2 is here.
