Buchla - Model 259 Programmable Complex Waveform Generator

Buchla 259 Vintage Modular Oscillator

Text from the video :
  • Rare 1970's Modular Oscillator running through a Plan-B Vactrol Filter and Gate. There are Vactrols (components that mate LED's with audio for natural acoustic tones) in the Osc so this makes a close to vintage complete Buchla sound. The Osc sounds like nothing else I've heard with it's waveshaping and altering of harmonic structure of the waveform. There's a Modulation OSC that also can pitch same as Main but I use it here for FM, AM and Timbre Shaping. Used here also are my Doepfer LFO, Plan-B Random, ASys Envelope, Modcan Sequencer and Asys Delay/Sampler.
