Hi everbody
ı want to buy lem4 snoopy but I am not sure Oscillators are fully analog or not , I heard that buchla uses digital oscs on 200e series , Does anybody give me detailed information about oscs which buchla uses on their systems.

It's a buchla, if you care whether it's analogue or digital maybe you should get something else.

:roll:
C'mon man.. Maybe its not a deal breaker and the guy just wants to be clear on it?

Muhammed it looks like it uses the 261e Complex oscillator, which from what I can gather is digital but with analogue wave shaping. I'm no buchla expert though so am happy for someone to correct me. Hopefully this helps.

Buchla don't really go for the analogue purist thing, they just do what sounds good. I just think it doesn't matter how the sound is made, if you want what the complex oscillator offers then just get it. It responds to midi and can have settings saved so in that sense the control is digital, the wave shaping is analogue.

In that sense it's "classic" digitally controlled analog (incl. "presets").

But man, digital or analog, you'll want the standalone TKB with it to get the most out of it :mrgreen:

sounds like dco
it would be nice if buchla used analog osc. like 259 I/O 261E on their new systems.
I have time to consider about it , everthing out of stocks at this moment :)
thanks for information

Why, do you not like how it sounds?

both sounds good but I prefer 259 its sounds more vivid than 261e , I have bizzare habits when I have someting rare and special I feel better myself:)

The 261e oscillators are digital. They sound digital. If you've ever played with a Harvestman Hertz Donut, they're very similar. Personally, I preferred the Hertz Donut.
My question would be why would you waste your money on the LEM4 Snoopy? You get nothing of the 200e series that is unique and interesting, and are left with scraps that have better counterparts in eurorack. For $1000 more you can have an Easel, with 2 analog oscillators, 2 LPGs, an analog sequencer, 4 different random generators, the touch keyboard, and more...
Honestly, these little systems are so desperate, and uninteresting.

Easel have analog oscillattors ? if so , thats really good

Of course it does.
