Pics from LA T_A Meet...

by Chris Randall

Here's a Flickr set with some pics from the LA T_A meet on Saturday. It was necessarily Euro-Centric, so most of the pictures are the usual cast of characters. Of note, if that sort of thing interests you, were the new 808 foot module from TipTop, and Harvestman's Polivoks oscillator, both of which I'll be getting. I'm not familiar enough with that scene to know what was earth-shattering or whatever. That Buchla was really pretty. I'll say that much.

There was a DSI Tempest in attendance, but I was up on the roof socializing, and didn't fondle it. Otherwise, a whole lotta patch cables. Heading back to PHX in a couple hours, then a busy, busy week ahead. I have to turn in the RC of this iOS app I've been working on, I have at least one sound-alike contract due, and somewhere in there we're gonna try and finish off Filterstation. Should be interesting. I'll need another vacation in a week or two.

Two questions about the photos:

- Is the Buchla one of the new ones, or one of the old 200 series?

- The ARP-looking thing at the end - whatisit?

that's an older buchla 200 not the 200e.

but does look like it could have a couple newer modules or cloned 3rd party modules.. i don't know much about the buchla stuff though.

@seancostello The Arp-ish synth at the end looks like a Macbeth to me, but I'm not entirely sure.

That's a MacBeth M5, the King of modern synths. It is huge. And made of plate steel. Very Scottish.

Macbeth is a wizard. amazing modules. classy. well built. beautiful sound.

I'd go next year and pull the fire alarm to walk out with something but it'd probably be mistaken for a new module.

I'd be interested in hearing what particular aspect of the new Polivoks oscillator that makes it a must have for you.

Also re the Tiptop 808 drum module; is there some foot controller element to it?

@ CR. Do you have the Polyvolks filter module ?
