Posted by admin on November 11, 2009

Buchla "Thunder" 222e Surface with micro-OSC

Posted by admin on November 11, 2009

I am working on embedding micro-OSC into the Buchla 222e control surface. This is a capacitive many touch surface with a layout identical to the classic Buchla Thunder.

- Sampling rate is 100hz.
- The ADC bit depth is 12-bit at the converter, about 9 bits are typically reported.
- The TTL serial rate is 188kbps with 3.3v signaling.
