When I saw the name Buddha Machine Music Box written on a piece of paper at Wall of Sound, Jeffrey took me to the back and pointed to a picture on the wall.
A quick Google search which led me to FM3. I had to have one. My first Buddha Machine was orange. But being the minimalist I am, I wanted a white one too. So I bought one.
I gave one of them away but by then the second geneation Buddha Machines came out and I snagged a purple one. Oddly I don’t use it.
The original Buddha Machines contain nine sound loops. The second one is my favorite.
Lisa says Buddha Machines remind her of an old school transistor radio. I call it the ultimate anti-iPod.
Buddha Machines are hardware loop players much like the Buddhist chant boxes sold by Buddhist temples throughout Asia. I’ve colleceted several of them too (big surprise).
