I guess the big news is that Buchla Associates has been bought out by Buchla Electronic Musical Instruments - a company formed to put more resources into the Buchla brand and keep on innovating. They promise to extend the range and bring the Buchla to a wider audience (which might mean more affordable). With SM Pro Audio's Danny Olesh on the board, we fully expect to see some major innovation - the man is a bit of a genius when it comes to designing audio gear.
Also announced was the new Buchla Skylab 200E modular system, a more affordable system, which still retains the ability to store patches. This one is small enough to take on a plane - presumably your own private jet, lets not forget that these systems are the cream of modular technology and have a cost to match - around $15k for the Skylab.
The official announcement was covered in one of our other videos from NAMM, but we couldn't resist a bit of Buchla action when we were offered a look at the Buchla Skylab 200E. We look forward to a lot more from Buchla in the future.
