At Knobcon 2019, Buchla USA announced that it is reintroducing the classic 100 Series modular synthesizer.
The system is based on the original San Francisco Tape Music Center Series 100. It’s being recreated with input from San Francisco Tape Music Center founders Morton Subotnick & Ramon Sender, and Buchla expert Todd Barton.
Here’s electronic music pioneer Morton Subotnick telling the story of the origin of the original Buchla system:
Buchla USA CEO Eric Fox told us that they plan to make the Series 100 available pre-assembled and as DIY kits, via The Human Comparator.
Details on pricing and availability are still to be announced.

Buchla is really on a roll lately, this is awesome news… curious about the pricing !
Not a euro-rack fan. But, I always love to see and old favorite return to production!
Good thing it’s not Eurorack then…
Only the new issue “Red Panel” stuff is Euro, everything else is the original Buchla format
My mistake. I got Doepher and Buchla mixed up. Not my cup of tea.
It would be nice if the link to the DIY kits showed something recent!! Interesting rather than super exciting. You end up with a lot of real estate for the amount of functionality. There’s a reason the 200 series came out
Sell the house, sell the car, sell the kids.
And the wife also?
The white panels make the knobs easier to find!!!
SO exciting! The sound of the 100 series is really unique.

What great news! Proof once again that what is old is new again. I imagine that with modern components, it will be more stable and reliable than the original.
