West Coast sound design playground.
The Buchla Easel V is the first recreation of Don Buchla's iconic instrument that helped define experimental West Coast modular synthesis in the early '70s. Our enhancements translate to vastly expanded possibilities for sound design and avant-garde music.
- Paint Outside the Line
A vehicle for avant-garde expeditions. A totally different take on synthesis. Welcome to the West Coast.
- Briefcase Full of Inspiration
A turn here, a patch there. In the Easel, simple adjustments tend to create sonic surprises that are sure to generate new musical ideas.
- Soundscape Sandbox
Complex oscillators. AM and FM synthesis. Percussive filter/gate combos. Ways to modulate nearly every parameter. You won’t run out of territory to explore anytime soon.
- The Synthesizer Plays You
Like the Buchla hardware that inspired it, Easel V offers unique possibilities for complex, evolving passages and generative music.
- Master In Minutes
The Easel’s logical layout means you’ll be creating sounds in no time. Its sheer depth means you’ll still enjoy creating them years later.
