Tag: Buchla and associates

Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft

P1120954NAMM is great, everybody makes modulars and syntheiszers now, even outsiders like Waldorf, Radical technologies, Roland or Studio Electronics entered the world of eurorack, so now .. just  Moog and Buchla are a bit behind (!).

In Frankfurt (Musikmesse starts April 2015) we will know the real truth and see if the indipendent small companies will survive the attack from outer space. For now, we definitely made the race!

Carlo and Paul are running around for SchneidersLaden giving you updates on all the modulars here and on their site very soon.

not Just an EASEL in 5.1, C54!

An EASEL is an EASEL (not an easle) and it seems like some few of them could be shipping to europe soon. Also Buchla will be exhibiting on Musikmesse in Frankfurt again together with Doepfer, MFB, Haken, Manikin, Kenton, Vermona, Intellijel, Studio Electronics, KOMA, Rebel Tech, Macbeth studiosystems and finally Verbos electronics (tbc) with ALEX4 in Hall 5.1 booth C54.  Follow the links or join the show to learn more about their news and classics; youre very welcome.

The Music Easle!

IMG_2897As the biggest surprise of last years NAMM show the Buchla Company (now BEMI) released their plans to re-build the Music Easle.
In their homeland USA they could sign around a 100 orders on the day of the release only (as they told themselves) later on they confirmed distributional agreements and collected orders and additional money from the rest of the world including europe. Our general distribution partner direclty ordered a bunch of units that has been preordered by clients in between, so these first ones are probably gone already. Because nobody knows, if and when the units will come, if they will work the way they should and how many pre-orders BEMI has on the list before us (and you), we should all together just go ahead wating in patience to talk further later on (?!).
If you really want one (?), we strongly recommend you to either set an order with a partner that does not ask YOU for a prepayment (international orders usually ARE prepaid) or to order from a partner around the corner, that you can trust to return the prepayment even if the unit does (unexpectingly) not come before you decide to buy something else one day. .. so Schneidersladen is taking care for a list, but all incoming orders NOW will be forwarded not before we once had a first working unit from our very early order on the desk. Thats why WE took the unit temporarily offline.

BUCHLA selling ..

975_1320(NAMM 2012/2) After I already offered it three times without any feedback, this year I met again Mr. Don Buchla on the show to talk about a partnership.. „Circumstances did change“ was the introduction to let me know, that his brand and company was sold completely to MV pro audio now, who is distributing brands like Waldorf and SM proaudio. So it could happen that they will turn Mr Buchlas „system in progress“ from a never ending story into a real product one day to get it selling? – we will see.
