Re: VERBOS ELECTRONICS

have there been many changes to the DFP filter? I recently saw a secondhand one advertised as being different from the later revisions as it uses a vactrol. It’s likely that vactrols have been phased out of the DFP. The Complex Osc no longer has vactrols and the ATC redesign removed vactrols. There...

Re: Entering notes into 250e from 218e?

I don’t have either of these modules yet, but I’m curious to know if notes can be input to the stages of the 250e via the 218e. It depends on what you mean by this. The 250e cannot record the output of the 218e if that is what you mean, nor can the output of the 218e be used to set the CV level for...

Re: Anyone successfully making impulse responses from distortion pedals?

I don’t quite understand the distinction. With guitar cabinets impulses you are capturing the harmonic distortion imposed on the guitar signal by the cabinet, speakers, and microphone used to capture the impulse. Isn’t that distortion also nonlinear? You're not capturing the harmonic distortion, ju...

Re: 281r vs 284r Comparisons

Envelope delay is unique to the 284. I don’t think that is available on any other Buchla module, though you can achieve the same result pairing a 250e or 251e with a 281/281e. Another unique feature of the 284 is that the single CV input scales each envelope segment by the same amount so that the ov...

In regard to question 2, you can definitely smooth morph between internal sequencer stages using external control voltages or pulses applied to the sequencer. I don’t have my 291e in front of me, but there are several different modes for interacting with the 291e. Each stage can be set to its own mo...

Re: a 275e would be good :)

Now, I see no sense in a Reverb module as you can have very nice IR reverbs on you computer. Sure, if reverb is only used for room/hall/ambience, why waste the cabinet space on it? On the other hand, modular format reverbs (and efx) do open up all manner of non-obvious and experimental options. I c...

I believe the issue is that an impulse response can be used to recreate a a process that is linear time-invariant, but distortion is a non-linear effect, as Tim_mop1 mentioned. I don’t quite understand the distinction. With guitar cabinets impulses you are capturing the harmonic distortion imposed ...

No. The Wogglebug uses a different design.

This is just one clock in and four random cv outs.
The Wogglebug is based on the Buchla 265 source of uncertainty, just FYI.

Re: 256e questions

If the goal is to switch between pulse streams of different rates you can use the 256e to switch/crossfade between cycling AD envelopes of different rates then send the output of the 256e to the slew processors on the 257e to extract pulses from those envelopes.
