Buchla & R880 mix by Foxx companion Benge

November 5, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Here’s his statement of the use of reverbs :-)

I have a lot of reverb units – I love them! They fascinate me because they take your sound and they put it into a 3D space, and they all do it in their own unique way. They have evolved so much over the years, starting off with analog springs and metal plates, through early and very clever digital algorithmic processors and onwards through the growing bit depths. My favourites are the EMT 140 stereo plate, the Lexicon 224, Yamaha Rev1 and the Telefunken Echomixer mono spring thing. I bought a Roland R880 years ago really cheap which was their attempt (in 1988) at a supa-mega-reverb and it is an extremely underrated unit actually. So I took it home so I could experiment putting a Buchla through it. I had a hunch that they would sound good together! I spent a few hours re-aquainting myself with its shocking operating system (which was like that scene in Contact where they build the spaceship based on blueprints deciphered from an alien language downloaded from outer space)

Anyway – here is a live tweak of the Buchla and R880 together

    Been corrected now :-)
    I of course know you (Benge) are a “he”, but it actually took some time to realize that it was actually you behind the blog
    Thanks for pointing it out

    Cheers Ola
