This adds to an emulation of the Buchla Dodecamodule the maximum number of 200-style module approximations that will fit comfortably on most displays without scrolling.

To the Dodecamodule is added:

  • Two 258-style Dual Oscillators.
  • One 2-op FM / Modulation Oscillator combo.
  • Quad Envelope Generator.
  • Quad LoPass/VCA.
  • Dual random voltage source.
  • Triple stepLFO/Pulse Source.
  • Dual CV Processor.
  • Six channel mixer.

The keyboard controls module is based on some of the functions of the 221 Kinesthetic Input Port, including the unique "2D Voltage Source", a joystick that outputs four distinct control voltages: from center up, from center down, from center left and from center right.

Also available as DodecaMax II with modules selected to minimize redundancy with Dodeca functions.

These are NOT intended to be a emulations of the sound or precise function of any Buchla modules or instrument; only a way to experience some of the unique 'West Coast' way of thinking about sound generation and alteration.

Patching is by drop-downs at each signal and CV input.

32-bit, so will require jBridge, etc., (or a DAW that will bridge) for use on 64-bit systems.

The link on the website is to a Sync.com folder that also contains the .osm Synthmaker source 'schematics', so anyone with SM, or it's successor Flowstone, can alter it to suit. It's hoped that anyone who makes significant improvements will share the result with everyone.

As this was originally built for my own use only, there are no presets included; I wanted to come at the instrument anew each time, as one did with vintage analog hardware.
