The Buchla

When it comes to analog synthesizers, most people have probably heard of Moog Synthesizers. And with good reason, Robert Moog was a trailblazer and his synths are incredible. Not as many people have heard of Don Buchla and his Buchla line of synths. I mention Buchla here not only because the synths are amazing pieces of work, but also because the university I am currently attending happens to have one of these rare beasts and I had the oppportunity to mess around with one. Buchla and Associates are still around today, making synths and midi controllers. Here is a video of a Buchla 200 in action.

    Hi Joe, thanks for the comment. That is awesome that you have these! I go to school at California State San Bernardino. I think they have a 200, but I am not 100% on that and won’t be able to see it until late September when the Fall term begins anew.
