What you are looking for is refered to as a Distribution Amp  
(sometimes just called a DA)- typically it has only one input and many  
outs. Iy is used to distribute a source to many destinations without  
it being loaded down and thusly changed. The Doepfer buss access  
module does this. One source CV in buffered and sent to many module on  
the buss. A google search for Distribution Amp will give you a few  
hits I'm sure. Theses are used a lot in the Radio world sending the  
same signal to many transmitters etc.
