Most of the posts on this site are devoted to smaller modular systems I build for my courses. However, I recently did a 2-hour live webcast with “DivKid” Ben Wilson about my personal system, including many of the choices that went into building it. Here is that video plus some background.
This is the story of the one that got away: a rare Buchla Model 248-1602 Multiple Arbitrary Function Generator as well as set of other rare and unusual modules. I acquired it ~30 years ago, but let it go ~20 years ago. Fortunately, now it’s going to end up in some excellent hands.
Before I got involved with modern modular synthesizers, I worked in the video and film industry. Before that, I designed synths, samplers, software, and digital audio recorders for the likes of Sequential, Digidesign, and Roland. The one I’m probably best known for is my involvement with the Sequential Prophet VS, as for creating what is now known as Vector Synthesis. Here is the story of their birth. Earlier versions are floating around the internet; this one is more complete, and with (hopefully) fewer typos.
