Getting Started With The New Tiptop Audio & Buchla Eurorack Modules

In their latest video, Wes from Perfect Circuit takes a look at the new Tiptop Audio & Buchla Eurorack modules.

These module recreate classic Buchla 200 Series Electric Music Box designs from 1970. The originals are now rare and expensive, but the new versions are updated to use the popular Eurorack format and designed to be mass-produced, so the prices start around $160 per module.

Perfect Circuit notes, “These aren’t simply ‘inspired by’ Buchla designs—these are actual Buchla 200 circuits, modified to accommodate the format-specific requirements of Eurorack, such as voltage levels, power supply, connection types, and of course, they are modified in layout to fit into a standard 3U Eurorack rack space. Otherwise, these are as close as you can get to the real deal.”

  1. It’s crazy they got it to those prices. $160 per module is pretty interesting. Collect the whole set.

    1. Yeah makes you think where the price of full size Buchla modules comes from

      Buchla were a bit foolish to miss out on the entire eurorack boom up until now

      1. “Yeah makes you think where the price of full size Buchla modules comes from”

        Bigger modules, smaller volumes – it’s basic economics.

        The price of synths is not really driven by their circuit design or the cost of electronic parts.

  2. Please release the rest for the love god or at least allow me to pre order to settle down my anxiety about getting them as well as nice way of committing and not having to turn back
