It's complicated...it seems.

Both the cardOC V1 and the cardOC V2 work with the 208r, 208p, BEMI 208 and also the BUSA 208C
However , it seems that on the Command version a daughter card is installed on the 208C itself that blocks the bus port for direct pitch control.
I say it seems because as of today i got three different reports and they contradict each other.
I hope to get a Command soon and see what can be done to get it 100% working which might mean modding it.

What should be working that some are finding isn’t working? I’m not seeing anything amiss, but still learning both the Command and the card.

The shared pitch output does not give full voltage through the bus, but the banana patched to the voltage pitch input works.
The difference is this board which turns midi into CV and instead of using a summing opamp from the voltage input and the bus it only seems to add the keyboard input and mixes the bus instead.

The Midi board says rev2. Maybe a rev3 can have a summing opamp? Something to suggest to Buchla?
Or would the main PCB need to be modified?

Well, i am still waiting fore my Command and midi card and then i can make some proper measures.
There is always room for improvements, space for mods.
Question is if it's not better to chose another out port for a cardOC V3 as there i can cal the shots and no one was to void their warranty.
That card looks to me like any 200e module on the inside, including MCU and programmer, so i think this will also hold the preset manager part for future 200e integration...maybe..

Whoa... I kinda wish that had a back on it, so the module isn't just hanging out in air... but cool it exists.

I agree. It does have a clandestine look to it. I am not even sure if it is being sold/offered, definitely a cool proof of concept.

Would there be interest in a simple version of the Baby8 sequencer on an aux card?
It seems like a fun and "hands on" thing to have on the 208.

Kuro teased an upcoming 295 comb filter card from Tokyo Tape Music Center on his instagram. Looking forward to this one!

these look cool...

though I've got to say, as someone who already has an extra osc card (Papz's VCS3 )& the TTMC 291 filter card, the most useful 3rd card for me to slot in the Hub would be a LPG ( plus maybe an env ) card : the ability to actually turn that VCS3 clone osc into a true third voice, with it's own triggering & articulation would be amazing for when I play out live, in particular.

Please can someone make something that's like half a 281h & 292h stuck together on a card please... ;) :hihi:

Any update on this ? I have a proposition for a cardOC v1 here and am wondering if it's compatible with my Easel Command. And what I coud do with it... Not very familiar with Ornament&Crime... Thanks !

Expect a announcement before christmas.
cardOC.21.3-01.png
There will be switches at the back to reroute some ins and outs so it makes more sense with the 208C mounted in the command station.
Buchla turned the pitch port on the card slot into a midi note bus, and that is something we can't change.
But we can use that instead of of of the other CV ins and use it for transpose for example.
At the same time out A can be routed to a new modulation target.
But you should familiarize yourself with the possibilities of the O_C plattform in advance..
It is deep, vast and powerful..a lot of menu diving at first but hands on control once dialed in.
I am also working on Cheat sheets that will come out at some point...they are similar to the cardOC.21 ones, now that we got LEDs on the 2OC.21
2OC_ASR.1.3.6.png
Also the firmware will be identical , including the new blanking mode that eliminates any OLED noise when recording and not fiddling with it.
So, yes, there is a V3 coming :)

Oh that sounds intriguing! I assume it is just a firmware change and us v1 owners might be able to take advantage of it as well?

Someday I will get a 208 in some version and one of the first expansion cards I will make for it will be a trigger-able audio file player (probably based on a Wave Trigger or Tsunami PCB). My modular currently is only wave players and would love to post process through a 208.
