Buchla 223e programming demo
Exploring programming different touchplates to different envelops in the 281e. Sound sources: Verbos 258v, 262v and Buchla 272e. Better audio at: soundcloud.com/user7621213/buchla-223e-touchplate
The 223e substitutes an innovative arpeggiator for the rings of the 222e
This three panel unit tactile sensor responds to a feather-weight touch, or to several pounds of pressure. An additional (1 panel unit) module houses the outputs, the arpeggiator controls, and the edit facility.
The tactile surface is normally mounted in the first row of a 201e-12 or 201e-18 cabinet: alternatively, it may be mounted in the recently announced 201e-3u frame, relieving spatial binds in crowded systems.
An ergonomic array of 27 keys sense pressure and velocity; fourteen respond to location in one or two dimensions. Arrayed into multiple user-defined groups ranging in size from 1 to 25 keys, they produce a variety of user-programmed control voltages.
Location, pressure, impact and tuned voltages, as well as pulses, are presented at a total of 30 outputs. The LCD based user interface is remarkably simple and flexible. The arpeggiator features multiple patterns, internal and external clocks, and many other sundry features.
All settings, including key programming, can be memorized and recalled by the 225e or 206e preset manager
