    1. Its a lot like buying a superior violin, since Buchlas are among the real Stradivarii of synths. You don’t buy one of these or a Serge rack just to fool around on the weekends. There’s a good reason you never see Buchlas on Craigslist.

  1. I tried on out at NAMM and it was great fun, sounds wonderful and very lust inducting. But I have to be practical. At that price you can build a modular system with capabilities far in excess of this instrument.

    I had the same thought when Moog came out with the XL. How many DotCom modules would that buy?

    Bang vs. Buck.? I’ll go with bang everytime.

    1. I partially agree about getting a large modular system. But the few things I always come back to is your buying a beautifully designed fully made instrument that has tone that will out perform a good deal of euro rack. This is not an smt synth. Also you will get expressive results out of an instrument like this that one would never think of or in a lot of cases be able to play on euro rack and especially not dotcom, and I have a dotcom. In contrast to that point it’s perceived limitations will also force you to come up interesting material and solutions which most people would only solve by purchasing more modules.
