If anyone in is possession of such a synth I'd be happy to swap two of my unicorns and a magic sprout for it.

I always suspected modular synths could be a trip hazard... :beamup:

LOL! Wasn't there an infamous 'red face' Buchla module that was supposedly coated in LSD?

Yes, it's now available from your local "dealer".... :)
I got my Buchla over a year ago, I've only just started to work it out and finally make a connection with it, no logical thought process prevails, and it rewards ignorant experimentation very well, I never found this with Eurorack, Don Buchla must have had a good trip designing the "Music Box"

I'm not stereotyping anyone in the Buchla community, I love them all, but on the whole, they (we?) do tend to look a bit like people who have experience the 60's first hand and haven't really left it behind! The values and the ideals of the counterculture are still there, and live on in Don Buchla's designs.

Yes, but I draw the line at growing a beard, loons, desert boots, long hair yes, but not a beard.
